What Pinarello model is this?

Are there any Pinarello experts out there who can id this model based on these pics? Should be a late nineties model I think?

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply.

I have researched hundreds if not thousands of pictures of different models and spent several hours - but the differerences are quite subtle so it is difficult for me as a noob to distinguish between them. I already found the scans of older Pinarello catalogs but they dont seem to cover the late 90's - which is why I tried asking here. So I am still interested in your opinion.

Personally I would think it is a lower end model - Veneto perhaps (but I am not sure they were built as late af the late 90's) or Radius or Asolo. But non of them seem to be exactly like the one I am looking at.

FWIW, the components appear to be early Shimano RX100, before it got the crank extractor system, which would place it 1990-1993. Personally, I'm not aware of anything being offered with Shimano components below 105SC (by the American distributor) and it may have been built from a frame with an older group,

However, I see Oria tubing decals of both the fork and bottom of the seat tube. Pinarello started using Oria in the very late 1980s, so it may even pre-date the components. The name of the Oria tubeset would be the biggest aid in identifying the model.

I only have the two pictures already posted and a few more which I attach here. I have not seen it yet - and the seller cant find more information. I am going to see it next week and I am trying to prepare by this research.

As you can see it comes with Shimano RX100.

Do any of these informations help?

Tell the seller to send you pictures of the Oria tubing decals on the fork blades and bottom of the seat tube. That should do it. I've never sen a Pinarello with this low of a grade of components, so it would appear to be built from a frame and/or non-American market.

The vast majority of Pinarello's were built up from the frame -- those components are not late 90's , but 93-94ish , but that's no guarantee that's what the frame is -- does the wheel slide in and out of the rear dropout smoothly, like it would if it was spaced at 130mm, or is it a bit stiff (like it would be if it was 126 ) ?

Nice bike -- I agree, it is rare to see a Pinarello with RX-100, but that's a good group and a sharp looking machine -- could've been built up by a budget minded racer back then --

Those seat stay caps are throwing me. I have not seen any that look like them at least from the '80s and early '90s. The ones I have seen are flat with the Pinarello symbol.

It is indeed a european model.

Might be a Cadore, but those frames used to come with a painted, not chromed fork. Low end frame, but still a nice Pinarello.

One of my Pinarello's does not have any text on the seat stay caps. I am puzzled at what model it is but it is still very light for its size. The difference is mine has no chrome anywhere and minimal markings. It is a good candidate for being a Cadore. At the same time, I don't think there is really a low-end Pinarello, just differences in amount of labor/cost in building the frame set.

I meant low end on the Pinarello rank, that's probably higher than middle general frame ranking .

Cadore is a definite possibility - but very strange about the chromed fork then (which seems to be a signal of a higher end model)?

I am still spending many hours researching the Pinarello models. I am I right that there are no scanned catalogs from early-mid 90's? I am still baffled by the chromed fork

Looks a lot like my 90-91 Cadore, but there are a few key differences:

*My Cadore has Columbus Cromor tubing decals
*Seat stays are different (mine are the flat w/pantograph "P" like others mentioned)
*My chainstays are chromed
*My fork is *not* chromed

Mine has a mishmash of DA bits, but if they were usually sold as frame/fork and then built up with whatever customers wanted, that makes sense.

The round seat caps may be a difference in the Oria tubed version. I found a pic of a Oria tubed Cadore which seems to have round seat stay caps.

The chromed fork remains a mystery though?
