Aluminum ratchet system. DT Swiss have a lot of troubles with steel ratchet, I don't trust aluminum, the load is too high.

Vastly overpriced and not that light. €1000 premium over other Far East produced frames that are lighter and arguably better engineered.freepk wrote:Just why no one Dogma F on this forum?

It's true that from a purely technical standpoint, there might be alternatives that offer similar or better specs at a lower cost. However, it's also important to consider the intangible value that comes with owning a product like the Dogma F.
In many hobbies and passions, be it high-fidelity audio equipment, luxury cars, or high-end sports gear, there's a certain pride and joy that comes from owning and using premium products. This isn't just about the physical attributes of the item, but also about the design, the brand heritage, and the personal satisfaction it brings. I dont think that a better designed, lighter Chinarello would bring me any satisfaction or owning pride at all.
For many enthusiasts, these factors contribute significantly to the overall experience. The pride of ownership, the aesthetic appeal, and the emotional connection can be just as important as the technical specifications. This is particularly true in the world of cycling, where the relationship between the rider and their bike can be quite personal and profound.
Its worth recognizing the value of the intangible elements that come with owning a piece like the Dogma F. For some, this may justify the premium over other options.
