Tough crowd!

F8 owner, great bike. I actually like the looks of this one, decent attempt to combine the older wavy look with the au courant robocop aesthetic.

Never liked the look of the F10 much and have heard from reliable sources it actually rode worse than the F8. Let’s hope they got the ride quality/responsiveness sorted out for this one.

Wonder how much the frame will weight. The tube design looks quite porky.

The F10 probably rode worse than the F8 because it was lighter and more aero. Easiest way to improve the ride quality of any frame is make it heavier.

I wonder about how this one will go, since it looks like it's gone back to being more styled than engineered.

Something about the curved fork and all that bothers me on these.

So many Dogma riders complained about the ride quality on the F10 so that Pinarello may have made a new Dogma including these feedback.

So yes a better Dogma for the dentist etc.....LOL

I’ve only been able to trace that F12 image back to this forum, maybe it is a distorted photo of the real thing?

You're not very good at tracing then. There's nothing wild about that photo besides slight wide-angle barrel distortion and perspective distortion.

Yeesh

On the plus side this will go nicely with Team Ineos’ weird wingdings font logo.

For all who laughed at De Rosa, it appears the Tango was waaaay ahead of its time! :lol: :| :oops: :lol:

The outline looks like it has the lines of bike previously shared

The fork flap outline looks like it trickled down from their recent Triathlon bike Bolide TR+.

Unless they are intentionally downplaying it, not seeing the kink here;
