F12 weight is quote from here: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=159065
F8 weight is quote from here: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=159037

If I am reading this right, there is absolutely no weight saving going to F12, if any there is weight gained! So what's the claim about F12 is 10% lighter than F10, which itself is 6.3% lighter than F8???

In order for the new top-tube kink to work, Pinarello had to reinforce the carbon with lead. :lol:
