Pinarello Marvel 2002 Road Bike

4.71/5 (7 Reviews)

Product Description

New for 2002 is the Pinarello Marvel. It’s a replacement and a refinement of the ever-popular Paris frameset in the Pinarello family. The “Pinarello Marvel” tubeset is a Tig-welded, oversized 7003 T6 aluminum with the same CRS carbon monostay as the Prince and Opera. It’s significantly lighter than the “Vires” aluminum tubeset used on the Paris in 2001. The addition of the CRS monostay gives the Marvel shock absorbency superior to that of any all-aluminum frame on the market.

The Marvel comes stock with the Pinarello Beta carbon fiber fork. It is 1-1/8” threadless, with a carbon fiber steerer tube and an integrated headset.

Strengths:    Craftsmanship (the details, paint and finish are works of art).

Weaknesses:    Can't think of any.

Bottom Line:   
Great combination of stiffness, weight and craftsmanship. A mix of great Italian engineering and art. I was warned the bike was going to be too stiff. Wrong. The stiffness makes it a great climber and allows it to accelerate out quickly.

Strengths:    Climbs like a goat. Oh so smooth.

Weaknesses:    Cost

Bottom Line:   
Holy Cow! What a bike! If you can't climb with this thing then you shouldn't be on a hill, much less a mountain. Stiff, responsive, great smooth ride. Amazing workmanship. A pure joy to spend the day on.

New marvel

I've always wanted a pinarello. I had a giant tcr that was a great bike but my shop recently dropped them. They wanted to get me into one of the brands they carried so they gave me this at cost and swapped all my other stuff over to the new frame. I'm taking it out to get it dialed in tomorrow and t ...
