Well, you could tell yourself that the Shimano components on a beautiful Italian frame are offensive to your sensibilities .

What is your budget?

Is it your size?

Its a nice one, but if it is outside your budget I would pass.

Shimano 105 level components are a big negative at this price level (picked up an all Shimano 105 bike today for $60US, but not a Pinarello).

I agree with Whit51. Someone has already stripped it down and destroyed half of what you expect when you walk up on a Pinarello, and that's the Campy drivetrain. Plus, it doesn't say what model Pinarello. If it was a Montello, I'd buy it and sell the group, but again, someone has been at it, so you don't know what to expect.
