I called a few "large" Pina retailers today looking to see if anyone has a 59.5 disc on the shelf at a discount. Both had same response: there are no more F8s in the US in that size. I thought that was odd as if they have a view into all US inventory.

Anyone have any insight? TIA

Now that disc brake bikes are really taking off, no wonder that many were also looking for a discounted F8 disc and that all stock is gone (or at least the retailers that you have asked don't have any).

....Go for the F10 disk. It is available....

2x the cost. The new Prince disc is rather sub-par. Shame they don't have a decent second option.

Pinarello has never been cheap indeed.

Are you going to try for an F10 disc now the F12 is out?

I picked up a disc model in Feb and just rode it Tuesday for first time. I took my time and built it myself as we have had a wet winter in NorCal.

I know La Dolce Velo has F8s collecting dust, but probably not a 59.5cm. Nobody really stocks 60cm bikes in that price tier. They don’t move fast enough.
