I'm looking at purchasing a second hand Pinarello Treviso racing bike (don't know what year). It has 16 gears (2x8) with downtube shifters. I was wondering whether Pinarello is a reliable brand for road bikes (ie. any major problems/downfalls) and how much it would probably be worth.

Reliable? Every winner of the TDF between LeMonds last win and Armstrong first was on one.

Would this guy ride anything but the best?

Beautiful well made bikes - that is the definition of Pinarello.

I have an older Asolo built up with 9spd 105 that is a joy to ride - and an inspiration to look at. It will be my TT rig this year. I am building up a Galileo with Ultegra right now.

Speaking from experience, it's priceless, but I've seen them sold on Ebay for upwards of a grand, if they're in good shape.

I bought an old bike from a co-worker for 200-clams. I thought it might be nice to get back into riding for health reasons.

I peeled off some stickers and cleaned off the frame and found it to be a Pinarello. This meant nothing to me until I did some research online. :D

It's from the mid to late 80's and a complete joy to ride. In fact, I like it so much, I'm buying a brand-spanking-new Pinarello this spring.

You simply can't go wrong with a bike like that.

Good luck.
