Phenomenal ride? WHO CARES?! All that matters around here is the number you see on the digital scale.
In all seriousness, you're correct. It's quite obvious that the folks at Pinarello know what they're doing by making a stout, confidence-inspiring race frame that's still easily built to the UCI limit. When your bikes are winning tours year after year, you tend not to concentrate on a niche market of gram obsessed one-uppers with no concern for UCI race weight restrictions.
