I think a fine tribute would be to post your example of Pinarello's best, past or present, yours, or one you found on the web. Here's one that caught my eye:

I hope that one of the UCI Pro teams riding Pinnies will have a commemorative decal or colourway for him, it would be fitting to recognize his contributions. Any teams othe than Sky riding them this season, or next, Pro Continental included?

Totally agree.
Giovanni Pinarell created a great legacy.

Well, I guess I'll raise a glass to Giovanni on the 7th, also my B-Day. Never had the pleasure or honor to own one of those great bikes.
I can remember lusting after them in the shops in the 70's but just couldn't swing a nice Italian bike back then. The look of the Pinarellos was always among my favorites. Another of the great masters gone.
