    Pinarello F8 Naked Silver Matte special order delay

    So I fell in love with the Naked Silver Matte and insisted on ordering that color, and waiting the 40-80 days that my bike shop claimed it would take.

    Do they really take that long?

    My Pinarello F8 special order took around 60 days. But then again mine is special edition. Naked Silver Matte is their standard color thus shouldn't take that long if you are getting the standard sizes. If you are on the extreme ends of sizes then it might take as long I guess.

    Depending where you are if you were desperate for it I would shopped around to find a shop with stock.

    I purchased mine from a certain retailer due to the HP terms they were offering, they didn't have the colour on their website but a quick call and they added it to their website so I could order it, They then ordered it from the importer but I still had it in under a week and that was with them being slow on the posting.

    They all go through Gita. If a dealer doesn't have it physically on the floor, it won't get there any quicker than any other shop. You just got lucky that Gita had one.

    I'm in the UK, some stores will hold some colours and sizes in stock, i missed them all out and went to the importer to check what I wanted was available before wasting anyone's time.

    Sigmasport and TheBikeFactory are good for the Uk

    Thanks everyone for all the replies. I ended up changing to Carbon T11001K - 673 Carbon White Red. I really like the look and I'll have the bike next week.
