Pinarello Dogma the sexiest bike ever?

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Just to be absolutely accurate. The carbon fibers used to make the tubes and lugs in the C59 come from a Japanese company called TORAY. TORAY supplies carbon fiber to a number of companies, including Daimler-Benz, Boeing, Ferrari, and others.

The tubes and lugs in the C59, however, are entirely hand-made in Italy--using fiber sourced from TORAY.

This is a common practice. For example, Columbus often sourced its steel from outside Italy. The tubes, however, were made in Italy. My 1989 Bottecchia, with Columbus SLX steel, was 100% handmade in Italy.

The rest of the Colnago line-up is made in Taiwan--a fact which they are very clear about.

Well, the Pinarellos are now sold in Halfords, which means it comes as standard with the forks facing the wrong way.
Sexiest bike ever? My StumpJumper. Road bike forums, so I will have to say the Langster Pro.

I'm always surprised that anyone actually likes the look of Pinarellos. It's like the Ed Hardy of road bikes.



I also agree with the whole "anything with a curved top tube will never be sexy" line,

How can a Pinarello be the best looking bike, when a Willier already is:





Beside's Pinarello's look like they been left in the sun too long.
They should call it the Pinarello Dali, not Dogma.

This has got to be a troll thread. The dogma in the link is a counterfeit.
