I just received my first Pinarello Paris frame (Team Sky model). The dealers in my city didn't have the frame that I wanted so I Purchased it from a Pinarello dealer in another city and had it shipped to me.
When I received the frame it came in a Orbea box ,but I was so excited that I didn't take much notice of it. Upon inspecting the frame I noticed that there were scuff marks and where the serial number is on the bottom it was dirty. To me it looked like the frame was not new (maybe a demo or return).
I got the frame at 50% off so I cleaned it up, but it bothered me because the frame was advertised as new. I emailed the dear today and he told me that frame was indeed new and it must have been over spray on the frame that looked like dirt.
I also didn't receive a manual/guide or anything like that with my bike.
I was just wondering if that was normal or is this shop trying to pull a fast one on me by sell me a demo frame as new

Bottom dirty with what I think is road grime, but the dealer says is over pray.

It looks new to me. If that was road grime the other stickers would be dirty too.

I have a question about the pinarello oversized bottom bracket. I am about to order the shimano ultegra groupset and wanted to know if I needed to get a different bottom bracket or is there just a standard size?
