My Bike is in Bicycling Magazine's Hall of Fame
Bicycling tests bike models on an annual basis. Out of 540+ models they have tested over the years the Pinarello Prince is one of those the testers have enjoyed riding the most. I must say I can understand why.
The picture in the article is the same Red & Black frame that I ride. I used to have a red saddle but replaced it with a white one. I use red bar tape as white gets discolored too quickly for my liking.
Specialized Tarmac continued to get very, very good reviews.
The only time I read Bicycling is when I'm flying somewhere which was the case this past week (Phoenix/Tucson). This issue also had reviews on the latest models.
Interestingly the group doing the testing stayed at Hincapie's new Domestique Hotel north of Greenville, SC. They rode the bikes from their up into the mountains where I do a lot of my climbing training.
Ride your Ride!!
