    Competitive Demo Program

    Just recently completed a week with a nice Pinarello Paris Carbon as a birthday gift from my family. The program was great and well worth it. The bike arrived on time and was easily assembled with a few hand tools. Then off riding! Discovered a few things-
    Pinny 56 feels much bigger than Cervelo 56
    Aliante saddle doesn't work as well for me as Arione
    Chorus not as smooth as Record, but not by much
    Shock absorbency of the Onda system really does work
    Pinny just not as nimble and explosive as Cervelo

    Net/net would not exchange my Cervelo soloist carbon for Pinarello Paris carbon

    Next time maybe I'll try the BMC!

    Nice program by Competitive and painless to do.

    That's great to know. I've been kicking around the idea of treating myself & taking them up on the BMC SLC01 test ride. Just gotta find a week of good weather!

    Interesting. I enjoyed the Pinarello handling much more than Cervelo... They're both amazing bikes, though...
