This new steed just came my way. A 2003 Pinarello Prince. This one is a Fassa Bortolo team bike, actually the bike of Tour De France stage winner Serguei Ivanov. The bike is in excellent shape as it was a backup and never ridden in racing. Pretty light at 16.7 lbs. I ride recreationally mostly on weekends, took this one out yesterday and Wow! Excuse the pedals on the pics...will be replaced immediately by a set of Carbon Keos.

Here's an archive pic of Fausto Pinarello (right) presenting the team bike to the CEO of Fassa Bortolo.

Thanks!

This is my first top-shelf bike. I always wondered what it would be like to ride on a Pro rider's bike, so I got my question answered. Lucky that the bike is exactly my size. Unfortunately I hear that the Fassa Bortolo team is dissaperaing. Ivanov is still riding, he is at Telekom last I heard. I'll post more ride impressions as I get some miles on it. I suppose riding this bike makes me a Fred? Lol, I'm loving the ride.
