2012 Pinarello Dogma 2 Frameset & Complete Bikes

2012 Pinarello Dogma 2

During this year’s Tour de France, we got our first glimpses of Pinarello’s new Dogma 2. It’s stiffer, more aerodynamic, and lighter. Pinarello examined how riders used the Dogma and improved on it. The top tube of the Dogma 2 is slightly off center to the right, allowing the rider more balance. The aerodnyamics and stiffness of the front end were improved. It’s 19% stiffer, so it will allow you to brake more precisely. The sculpted crown integrates seamlessly into the re-shaped down tube.

AH’s Pinarello Dogma Di2 My Way Frame

Pinarello Dogma Di2 My Way

The order came in within a few weeks and I was honestly surprised at how good this bike looked. The look is minimal, with the black and white.

Taiwanese Pinarello Prince Frame

I saw a Taiwanese Pinarello Prince frame. It’s the same frame as the legendary Prince, but without the same paintjob. These are made in Taiwan at the same factory. I wasn’t impressed with the overall finish of this demo frame, but since the customer can decide on what they want, that makes up for it.

2010 Pinarello Dogma Di2 My Way

My Way sets this Dogma apart

Over the past week or so, customers have been admiring this new Pinarello Dogma 60.1 frame that was ordered for AH. AH had decided upon using a custom paint job thanks to Pinarello’s My Way customization scheme, which makes this frame stand out from the traditional Dogmas. He also ordered the Di2-compatible frame, which allows internal wiring of Shimano’s Dura Ace Di2 electronic shifting group.

2011 Pinarello Road Bicycles

This year, Pinarello is emphasizing their asymmetric design philosophy. The models stay the same but they’ve announced a new re-designed Paris Carbon, which is made out of 50HM 1.5K carbon. It’s slot is right after the Prince Carbon. The Prince is made out of 50HM 1K carbon. The Dogma is made out of 60HM 1K carbon. The Dogma is available in a Di2 compatible frame.

2010 Pinarello Graal

2010 Pinarello Graal, not yet available for purchase

Here are some great photos of Bradley Wiggins’ Pinarello Graal TT bike. Wiggo has got 2 of these, one with Dura-Ace 7900 and one with Di2. The lines definitely remind me of the Giant Trinity TT bike.

The top end must be pretty heavy with the MOst TT bar. I’m surprised that the brakes weren’t integrated into the frame. Granted, the front brake is behind the fork, but I would have put it inside the fork. Same goes for the brake in the back. Quite a few TT bikes put it near the crank.

What’s most distinctive are the wedges, which are blue on the downtube. This isn’t just a paintjob, they are made to enhance aerodynamics.

The Pinarello Dogma/Prince Dilemma

2008 Pinarello Prince in Neon

If you are in the market for a frame from Pinarello, and you don’t want to spend too much money, then you should seriously consider buying a ’08 or ’09 Prince carbon frame. The Dogma is the latest and greatest from Pinarello. It just came out last fall and retails for $5,500 in the US. We have it at a better price, but it’s still quite a bit of money to pay for a frameset, which includes frame, fork, headset and MOst seatpost.

There are many different reasons to choose the Prince. It’s a race-proven frame, very stiff and responsive and, unsurprisingly, it’s actually lighter than the Dogma 60.1 frame. Pinarello, like most manufacturers, tends to quote the weight of their frames unpainted, just when they come out of the oven, without derailleur hangers. The Dogma frame has got a lot of layers of heavy paint on it, quite a bit more than the Prince. The geometry is very similar, but the ride of the Prince is more nervous and lively compared to the Dogma. The Dogma is more comfortable. So, if you’re looking for something lively, you should be looking at the Prince. If you’re looking for a stable ride, they look at the Dogma.
