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.

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.

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.

2009 Pinarello Prince With Super Record 11

Same color bike different wheels, photo by Sacke

Update: The wheels have been sold and we really want to find an owner for this bike. I’ve got a new price for this bike, minus the wheels. Send me an email to find out more.

A customer ordered this bike but didn’t buy it, so I’m trying to find it a good home. It’s a 2009 Pinarello Prince equipped with Super Record 11 and Shamal Utlra Titanium Wheels. It also has the MOst Manubrio Talon handlebar/stem combo. The size is 500 and the color is 416 Fire.

This is a great opportunity to get a Prince Carbon directly from Taiwan at a really good price. This bike retails for $9,400 USD, but it’s going to be available for significantly less. The Prince frameset sells for $4,500 USD alone. I’m open to changing the specs of this bike to suit your needs, like upgrading the wheels to Bora Ultra Twos. This bike is in stock so it will ship as soon as the payment has been cleared.

The size is 500 and the color is 416 Fire. To clarify, the photos above aren’t of the bike itself, but a bike that looks just like it. The bike is new and has never been used. It’s been sitting in the shop for a few months. I can go shoot some photos for interested parties.

Pinarello Prince Falls Over and Breaks

You’d expect carbon fiber frames to be more brittle than metal, but I’d never expect a Prince to break if it falls over. That’s pretty bad.

Today I had some time off, so I went to the Giant shop to repair my disc brake. The disc was a little bent. It took about 20 minutes and the service was free, even though the bike was bought in Canada.
