I can't respect someone who wants to pretend they've paid for a Pinarello (or any other fake) when they haven't. It's not a replica, it's a forgery - and buying one is the worst kind of image obsessed status chasing I can think of.
Totally agreed. Buying a Pinarello Chinese replica makes my eyes roll in despair
