F4:13 means: Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."

My PINARELLO F4:13 BROKE and i'm looking for some answers. I'ts hard to accept this from a HIGH QUALITIY ITALIAN FRAME, if are Italian made!

A label into the head tube can be the weak point. But were the QUALITY CONTROL?

I try the warranty, but they don't heard me. Specialized, Merdida, Trek offer a great warranty service, but PINARELLO....

The big teams frames are made in ITALY our TAIWAN?...

How did that happen? :confused:

Just at first glance it makes me worried about buying my first carbon bike...which I was planning on doing here any day. :idea: (I've been a steel and Ti guy up to this point.)

Umm, you fell and now you are blaming the bike company. Maybe you should be blaming yourself?
I fell because the frame broke! The frame did't support the forces. I'm a 70Kg, 154lbs. I didn't hit, i just try to be stable, then CRACK!

If that's the OP standing beside his bike immediately after the fall, he sure doesn't look as banged up as his bike.
Yup, not a mark on the guy, the wheels look good, and the brake levers are still straight. It almost looks like someone forgot it was an rear car rack and backed into something. Or maybe is just spontaneously snapped, throwing the bike and rider into a field of foam rubber.

I'm pretty sure all Pinarello carbon frames have always been made in Taiwan. Some are finished (painted) in Italy. There was an interview with Fausto a year or so back in roadbikeaction where he stated that they do not have the capablity to build carbon frames in Italy. (not that there is anything wrong with Taiwan frames IMO)
