my new pinarello veneto

just finished putting it together, i will have to do fine detail fitting later, its 16 below 0 and we got 14" of snow last night. very rough night at work so I'm going to bed for awhile. i got the bike pretty cheap and it had a full 105 group that originally came with it. it was in pretty good shape, but i really didn't want to put shimano 105 on a pinarello. but, it ended up looking ok. can't wait to ride it.

Great looking Pin! I recently acquired one that has a big mix of parts. Thinking early 105 just to get by. I have everything 105 below the TT except the BB.

What would be your choice of gruppo?

i'm pretty happy how it turned out with the shimano group set, but i really would've liked campy on the pinarello.

Looks great!

I probably have an extra Campy Record/Chorus gruppo and wheelset.

Not that there's anything wrong with the 105.

In the meantime, ride it in good health.

If the snow ever melts.

Mine is a Tre Cime and was sold with Victory. What it came with was Dura Ace hubs, 105 brakes, 600 tricolor RD, Superbe Pro FD, RX100 cranks and shifters! And a really deteriorated paint. One size too small so it is going to my daughter as a grad present post paint and build

Very nice! While that 105 is a very good group, I'd prefer Campy too.

Evil lurks everywhere...I was going to say I have some Campy 10-sp DT shifters, calipers, an FD, a crankset and BB for that....uh, and a wheelset and cassette...you know, just trying to keep you on the right path...I may have a chain, too..... Makes a nice bookend to that FP Team in the background.

Red bikes are nice, that one is very pretty. Yeah, it does want Campy parts, but enjoy every mile whatever gruppo it wears.

Looks awesome! I can see the urge to go Campagnolo, given the frame's final results. 105SC is a great functioning group. But a nice Centaur or Veloce 10 speed in silver would highlight that paint job well.

Very nice Pinarello, certainly highlighted in red (the fastest shade of red, too).

The beauty of a 'rider' is in it's usefulness, so if the 105 performs well use it.

Great looking bike wondering who did the repaint and and pinstripe lettering it is some very good work. As for 105 nothing wrong frome a functional stanpoint it is as good as the Campy actually looks a litle better cleaned up and polishes. Just some realy grea work overal on build.

There's nothing nicer than a red framed bike. Being a Pinarello makes it just that little bit nicer again.

What am I complaining about - it's 16 above 0 here and I think it's cold. I can't even imagine what 16 below 0 feels like.

Great bike, the first bike i got was a veneto a few years ago and it got me hooked on cycling again. I had the same 105SC group on it except mine was 8 speed brifters. The group worked flawlessly like shimano should but i got bored and dumped that group and put full all matching DA on there, including getting new wheels built.

I feel so sorry for you guys at the moment - such a mind-blowing cold snap. I rely can't appreciate just how cold it is. I hope everyone is safe.

Now - riding in those conditions must be - well - I don't know what it must be like but super brave and super-duper tough comes to mind though.

Best wishes,

Gary.

Thanks for all the nice compliments, the 105 will work for now. The only reason it's on there is because it looks like a new group set. Completely flawless. So with the repaint it looks like a brand new bike. And also I'm broke.

Looks very nice, really like the paint job. Where did you get your decals from, What paint code is that if you don't mind? Now I'm upset I sold the Treviso. I still have the Campy Record 10 speed Ergo group with matching Campy wheel set (ti Hubs).

Decals are from velocals, very nice high quality. The paint is dupli color lacquer, performance red. The pictures really don't show the details of the bright red and the super crisp decals. Plus I hadn't wipe the grease off the frame from my grubby hands.
