I am considering buying a 2001 Pinarello Aluminum frame and steel fork. Does anyone have any knowledge about the frame/fork or recommendations one way or another? Also, the bike is used and is described as being in very good condition . . . any idea on value? Thanks, Ron

Ron are you looking at the blue one?

Yeah, I saw it on roadbikereview. The paint job looks great, but I am a little suspect of the frame quality. I also think $350 is a little steep. Any opinion on it? Thanks, Ron

I had a steel Pinarello and the workmanship and design were first rate. I converted it to a touring bike for a friend and she loves it.

I test road a red aluminum model a while back, I think it was a 2002. The handling seemed very stable, yet responsive. I remember watching ex world champion Daniele Pontoni race cyclocross in Portland in 2004. He didn't seem to have any trouble crushing the competition on his Pinarello.

350 for that frame is a biy steep. it has some cosmetic issues. Id prolly knock a hundred off...
