Strengths:    Weight
Finish
Robustness
Soft ride for aluminium
Stiffness


Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Over the years I have put this bike through alot of commuting and some club races. Whilst full aluminium it has a surprising level of compliance and comfort whilst being sufficiently stiff to give good acceleration and hill climbing performance. Rough roads can be tiresome though, numb hands and feet are a problem after 80km on poor surfaces. The bike is getting on now however I think it would be hard to find a better Aluminium alternative even today. If you find one buy it as you won't regret it!

Bottom Line:   
I went to a bike swap several years ago and a guy there was selling a Pinarello Paris. I rode it and fell in love with it. A few months later I had a friend order me the frame and build one in my size! What I immediately loved was the sleekness of the design and tear drop shaped top tube, and the paint job was beautiful!! Once I began racing criteriums I really noticed how responsive the bike was in the corners and how fast it accelerated. Personally, I really enjoy the stiff ride. Previous to riding this bike I didn't even enjoy cycling. I have made the transition from a more casual cyclist to competitive road racer and will never ride another bike.

colnago c59 vs pinarello paris

These bikes seem similar from the advertising and reviews. Can anyone with experience contrast the two in terms of stiffness, plushness, handling. Other than one being lugged and the other monocoque, the marketing sounds similar.Read More »

Not really Paris (or Pina)

Just finished reading another thread about a Paris. Next noticed that the thread was resurrected from the dead. Then I noticed that the OP had the title "banned" under her name. It seemed like she was a pretty solid contributor. So what did it take to get banned?Read More »

Paris Roubaix crash

Here is the first crash video up so far with the fan crash. The fans were not hanging out trying to get attention, just standing on the side of the road. Vandenbergh was definitely responsible for this crash. He was riding the gutters and paid the price of taking the chance. [video=youtube;0-dm ... Read More »
