Interesting pinarello montello

as you all know by now i'm a pinarello fan, i was doing my random searches on ebay and came across this frame, i don't ever recall seeing something like this in pinarello's catalogue.

i forgot the name of the downtube shifter position but i've never seen pinarello do this on their bikes and the internal cable routing. anyone own one of these?

i almost pulled the trigger on buying the bike, but i i forgot how much i hate downtube shifting, i was almost even thinking of doing a build with c-record on this with downtubes, but i chickened out

It looks like part of the Aero craze! Nice bike and to me it seems like no two pinarellos are ever same.

that's a slick piece of kit. My size, too! unfortunately I'm broke. sad that it has the usual pinarello decal quality.

i've got the same type of aero cable set up on my 84 pog. its pretty slick and makes cleaning the down tube and chain stays super easy without having to fuss with cables. but it does take some getting used to especially because both shifters are so close together. every time i reach for the the rear shifter, it get a handful of the front one as well. but definitely unique and not something you see very often.
