The real BB Right
- I've used it several times
“It's hard to imagine anything but universal accord over the bottom bracket choice”. Yeah, no kidding. I will not even look at a frame that has a press fit, clusterflop BB that, at best, creaks and pops like a cheap, crapped-out flophouse mattress and, at worst, flys apart like a tissue paper shack in a hurricane. It is astounding that even after so many years, bike companies have insisted on cramming a billion inferior BB “standards” down everyone’s throat. They save a nickel on machining a threaded shell and pass it on as a feature rather than a bug and then blame the inevitable cacophony on imprecise installation and/or operator error. So, kudos to Pinarello for sticking with a classic threaded BB interface. If I decide to add a new carbon-framed bike to my stable, they will be at the top of my list (and maybe the only company on it).

I have 5 Bikes with PressFit30 or BB30, and they are all fine.

Yeah, a threaded BB is good but it still has internal cable routing and, worst of all, is made out of plastic. Also, on this complete bike they cheese out on the brake calipers by specifying house-brand crap instead of genuine Shimano. I’ve never really understood that strategy on these price-point bikes— “let’s save a nickel by using garbage brakes”— as brake feel is just as important part of rider feedback as anything else. Someone thinking they are buying an “upgrade” to their aluminum-frame bike that has Shimano brakes are likely to be disappointed. So maybe save the house-brand schlock for the “finishing kit” but make sure the brakes and drivetrain are the genuine article. Pinarello are evidently selling plenty of $7000 frame sets to the rich pretend-racers out there so surely they can afford to give real brakes to the not-as-rich ones who might buy this one.

So, yeah, Hoogle i’d rather have 105 brakes than the MOST ones but it really ain’t that big a deal. Those are easy to upgrade later if one so chooses. The threaded BB and a frameset that is “close enough to Dogma” for most regular Joes are the reasons to get something like this bike. The internal cable routing I can take or leave. It’s another non-issue and a tiresome luddite ranting point. As for it being “made out of plastic”, so what? I like metal bikes too but— news flash!— carbon fiber reinforced plastic is THE material for bike frames in the 21st century. It is hardly novel, rare, exotic, or mysterious any longer and, when done right, is superior in every way to all the other materials (setting aside personal aesthetics, nostalgia, etc.). This Pinarello seems like a decent buy for a newish roadie enthusiast who still wants to eat and has bills to pay,

Great and reasonably priced!
- I've used it several times
I bought this bike for my dad for Christmas and this is what he had to say about it: "I have had the pleasure of riding this bike about 200 miles since I received it. The bike is all I hoped for in a reasonably priced bike. It is lighter than my other road bike and really cruises up hills. It is a little less secure going down twisting hills but part of this may be my sizing down to a 56 from my usual 58. I am sort of between a 56 and 58 but overall like the 56 a little more so far. For the price, the bike is an incredible value. For a moderate price increase, one could get disc brakes but that is a personal choice. I have also changed the rear cassette and the rear derailleur does not hav ea long cage, so if one wants a 32 or 34 cassette, the derailleur will have to be replaced. In summary, this is one great bike for the price. Definitely recommend.
