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.

The last photo is not Fausto Pinarello. It is Giovanni Pinarello, Fausto's father and the man behind the Pinarello name. Giovanni, known to his friends as Nane, was one incredible man, but recently old age has begun setting in and he is becoming quite forgetful, a real pity.
