Hey, its all relative (to a lot of things). personally, i wouldn't consider that (very beautiful) Marinoni as a starter bike by any means. But afterall, i come from the 3rd world.
Check out the other new-bike threads on the forum - you'll get a lot of useful input. But my 2c if you've not yet specialized in a specific discipline on the track - does the bike fit comfortably and feel good to ride? does it meet your aesthetic and budget constraints?
for more specific input, you'll need to wait to hear from the other guys on this list.
