I have never understood modern Pinarello love. The only Pinarello I'd like to own would be a Delgado / Indurain era steel bike.

At least the Colango C64 you can trace back the lineage to the C40 which as an epic palmares.

Cable integration is cool but the new frame is uninspired to say the least.

Is this the first off-the-peg frame from a major to hit the £5k mark for the frameset?

I feel exactly the same :beerchug:

Those were Pina's that showed craftsmanship

I also loved Bottecchia :D

Few weeks back a friend was selling a Delgado’s bike

Now Team Ineos has a matching bike, as fugly as their kit. I've never been fond of the F10 aesthetics (frames just look like they're melting to me), but that kinked top-tube.... just hideous.

Still putting it together, a shame my 1,72m are a bit short to use Indurain s 1,88m Pegoretti welded frame :/

If you own a Pinarello Dogma you want the others to see it immediately.
This is probably the answer. So long as they can get those curves in there without losing performance (can they really? At least it's gotta weight more right?).

I don't like curves that don't have proper explanation. Though I guess good for Pinarello? At least they are able to distinguish the bike from most of the aero bikes in the market these days which look pretty much all the same.

All the bikes from the past looked the same for the most part outside of lug-work. I can't stand to looking at them now with a heavy-assed SLR(had two), ugly box rimmed wheels, shark tooth hoods, 36 spokes and long rake.

Maybe on a technicality. C64 Disc Art Decor is £4999 :P

Although the F10 X-Light was more expensive than either, but you might call that a Ltd edition.

Good point! I hadn’t realised it was that pricey

Is this not very reminiscent of LOOK's kinked top tubes of the noughties? The same kink that they later entirely removed stating that it was purely for aesthetic reasons? Also very strong hits of that Grevil gravel bike they have produced lately. Quite a polarising look.

To each their own opinion, but in my opinion this looks worlds apart from the elegant frame & fork style they used to have like in my current road bike, pictured...

Never been a fan of Pinarello although F10 was a MAJOR upgrade in my eyes. Looks like that was a step forward only to take 5 back with the 12, lol. That thing is hard to look at...
I'm sure it'll have its fans.
