    I bought a Prince back in 2001 from the shop, one of Jan Ulrich's back-ups from the Giro that year. A very memorable experience, even got to chat with Nani. Prior to that I also was fitted at the factory for team bikes back in the late 90's, by Fausto - Very cool! I'm planning a trip back to Treviso next spring/summer during the Giro. A can't miss stop over for any fans of the brand.

    My new FP7

    A pic's of my new FP7, I love this bike! The guy in the pic is from Pinarello in Treviso, he set me up on the bike. Buying a bike straight from Pinarello in Treviso turned out to be a great experience. Although late July and early August is more difficult because they are busy with their Gran Fondo and the factory closes for a bit in August. I went hoping to get an FP3 and was overjoyed to get my FP7. But I almost came home empty handed and needed to get to Treviso two days in a row, defenitely worth it!

    It says, MADE IN ITALY, not Taiwan. But went to Torayca related sites...Carbon Composites are made in Taiwan. These are then shipped to Italy for Assembly and painting.

    No Carbon frame is made in the Eirope or US.

    Yes I should imagine so..apart from Parlees made in USA and Colnago's carbon EPS (although I'm not 100 percent sure Colnagos are ) De Rosa's older model Idol to name another. Maybe some others too.

    With respect, the video doesn't actually show the construction of the frame, only the final finishing and painting. Though I'd love to believe they are made in Italy and I would love to be a potential purchaser..it would be easy to show a few EPS's being made in Italy and then have the rest of the production made in Taiwan or where ever..What do you think? Thanks for the video, it was interesting.

    If you look down the side, you will see other chapers including making the frame at the Colnago factory. I'm please Colnago launched these videos as it puts to bed the myth about them not being made in Italy! I can't speak for Pinarello

    High end Treks are still made in Waterloo Wisconsin, Calfee's are made in Watsonville California, High end Looks still made in France as are Time's... All are lugged c/f.

    So, what you should have said is no Monocoque carbon frame is made in Europe or US.

    What was the last monocoque frame made in Europe/USA? I recall the Cristallo was made by ATR for Colnago in Italy, but production ceased due to high build costs.Trying to think of others...?

    My source (Gita, US Distributor) claims the Colnago Cristallo to be another fine product from Taiwan. Personally, I wouldn't want my monocoque frame made anywhere else. Taiwan is the epicenter in carbon monocoque engineering, design and inovation. That's why Pinarello et al have partnered with them to design and manufacter the state of the art in monocoque technology.

    Blimey! What frames are made outside Taiwan/China/Far East?

    Funny, when I look back at my old Paris frame, whilst it was a great performer, the carbon finish wasn't that great. The weave appered uneven in places. I think its much improved on the Prince.

    Hi-end lugged and fillet brazed steel, hi-end titanium, hi-end lugged c/f could still be made in Europe/USA. If it's monocoque c/f, you can pretty much bank on that it was manufactered somewhere in Asia. Italian design + Japanese materials + Chinese labor = world economey

    So do you think the following frames could be made in Italy still?

    De Rosa Neo Primato, Corum, Titanio
    Pinarello Dogma Magnesium
    Colnago EPS, Masterlight

    Best guess:
    De Rosa Neo Primato = Italy
    Corum = Italy
    Titanio = IIRC this frame is made by Lightspeed in USA
    Pinarello Dogma Mag = Italy (c/f stays & fork = Taiwan)
    Colnago EPS = Italy (c/f tubes laid up in Asia)

    This subject has been flogged to death on so many forums. Is it or isn't it? I see Colnago made the step of filming the making of the EPS at the Colnago factory in Italy. Do Pinarello have any footage of the Prince being made or is that made in the far east??

    Clearly you missed the point of this conversation. No one is in dispute as to where monocoque carbon Pinorellos are manufactered, no one, except maybe you

    If I were to purchase a De Rosa the Titanio would be at the top of my list. Made in Italy and made by Doriano De Rosa. The Italian magazine CT had a 28 photo feature of a Titanio frame being made (http://italiancyclingjournal.blogspo...uary-2008.html)
