You can always take out the price factor and just get a Dogma from some place like this: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/2013-Pin ... 2783805431

It will probably won't have the same ride characteristics as the "real thing"!
Then again, how do you even know that when you pay some $4k+ for the Pinarello that you aren't actually getting one of these???? Makes me wonder some times with all the new carbon frames on the market. So many of them are "designed in Italy" but may actually be made over seas to their specs and then shipped back to them and ultimately you.
Ok, don't get your panties in a bind. Not saying all carbon frames are cheap knockoffs. Not at all. Personally, I would love a Dogma but for me, all the curvy lines just don't work and I would rather drop the money on a Parlee, Burk, Cinelli, or even the Specilized. I can't believe I am saying this but I even like the late model Trek frames.
