Yes I just got the reply from PINARELLO.Clevor said:I think CC's weight calculator is a bit optimistic. If you go by it, a stock $2200, 2006 Gallileo with Ultegra and M.O.ST components weighs 16.96 lbs (SH550 wheels yet). I've seen the bike in stores and it's NOT that light. That's full carbon fiber frame territory, with pretty decent components.
Has anyone ever gotten a reply from the Pinarello website?
That sounds about right. I have nearly the same build on my Look 585 (except that I have Eurus instead of Neutrons, and a Bontrager X-lite Post) and the weight comes out to 15.6 lbs w/cages. The Galileo should be right under 17lbs. It will be interesting to see how it rides-if it is smooth like a Marvel or rough like a Prince.40dave said:Yes I just got the reply from PINARELLO.
They tell me that for a size 54, frame comes to 1490g and fork 460g.
It's a 215g difference then what CC has.
Knowing that, I think it is still possible to built a very decent bike.
Galileo 2006 package on CC built with new PINARELLO numbers 8188g(18.05lbs)
If I remove the Shimano components as I'm planning to do and go with the following
mix of components: Chorus F&B derailleurs, Chorus Bcalipers cassette, chain & brake levers, FSA handlebars, seatpost and stem, SLR Selle italia saddle, Look Keo pedals
ans Campagnolo Neutron wheels
Total weight(with Pinarello numbers) obtained on CC : 7599g(16.75lbs).
Keep in mind that Pinarello name is going to cost ya! Those funky fork legs too.40dave said:Very happy to hear that you've bought the 2006 Galileo.
I'll be waiting anxiously to hear about your first test ride.
I'm still very concern about the weight of this machine.
As you probably read on one of my previous post, I got from Pinarello the weight of the frame and fork for a size 54 (without color) wich is supposed to be 1490+ 460 for the fork.
Went to a bike shop last week and they had a blue model wich came out at exactly 20 pounds on a very precise scale.
I still don't understand the huge difference of 2 pounds between the numbers on competitive cyclist and the live model.
I need to order a size 58. Will I get a rock once the bike is build ?
I would expect of a bike of that quality to be around 18 to 19 pounds.
Maybe you could share with us the size and weight of your new baby if you can.
Tell me guys am I getting crazy with this weight thing ?
You definitely have a point. Unfortunately, the Giant isn't available in many sizes, whereas the Pinarello has a bigger size run (I really love the fact that you can buy most of their bikes in at least 9 sizes, if not single-size increments). Giant is a line I would love to have: it compliments Pinarello very well.Clevor said:Keep in mind that Pinarello name is going to cost ya! Those funky fork legs too.
My Giant TCR Comp 1 cost about the same as list on a 2006 Galileo, around $2250 and comes with FSA Mega-EXO carbon crank, Mavic Elites, Fizik Aliante saddle, Easton EC50 bar, full carbon fiber stem/post, and full Ultegra/DuraAce rear. Hell, it even included Time Impact pedals. Bike weighs 17.3 with pedals, all four reflectors, pie plate, and a heavy CATEYE HRM/Speedometer. Full carbon fiber monocoque, of course.
The rap on the bike compared to a Pinarello or Colnago used to be: but it's made in Taiwan .
