    New Pinarello Dogma 2011 Naked Red Silver

    Hi Guys,

    The point of this post is to make a first post and to give people some better shots of this paint scheme, which I had real trouble finding anywhere on the net.

    Just bought my amazing new Pinarello Dogma 2011 in Naked/Red/Silver. Specs are full SR11, Fulcrum Racing Zero's, Most Talon's and Fizik Arione (ultegra pedals). Full weight including pedals, cages and computer mounts comes to 7.55kg.

    Attached are some crappy shots I took on my iPhone late one afternoon to give an idea of the awesomeness lol, I will post better shots once I get a some daylight hours to shoot in.

    By way of history I have come from a Specialized Roubaix Pro 2008 with 2010 Mavic Cosmic Carbone SL wheels and before that a 2007 Bianchi Via Nirone.

    It took a while for all the parts to come in so I spent a lot of time reading I think every review in english about the bike I could and I just didnt believe it could be as good as everyone was saying. Phrases such as "magic carpet ride" kept surfacing and as a lifelong cinic I thought it was people who had just dropped a lot of cash justifying their purchase..... boy was I happy to be as wrong as I am.

    I am in no way a fast or competitive rider but I love my bikes and I have been on road bikes for about 11 years. The handling is smoother than the Roubaix over rough terrain and I am left fresher after a ride (107KG, 183cm tall and Rugby Union background so damaged hands). It is also amazingly smooth and the power transfer is almost scary in how instant it is oh and speaking of things that are scary and instant, the handling and cornering is simply telepathic, I am taking corners I have been taking for years with much more speed and confidence.

    I have only done about 150km so far so this is a bit of an early review, but I plan to take it up some local mountains, Coot-tha, Nebo and Glorious come to mind over the next few weeks so I will give a better review then and post some good high resolution shots in the next week.

    The current shots don't really do the bike justice as the naked black just looks black and the "diamond" finish doesnt look as good.

    Anyway over to the comments, would love to hear from others on their experiences with the Dogma.

    Congrats on the Bike and color/combo. If you search you can find some very good Color 537 photo's on the net. IMO 537 is the best aside from the BOB.

    You're not doing this bike any justice. With all the money you just spent, spend some more and buy a DSLR and take some real photos ;-)

    Smith: yes it is a 56 cm - I am 183cm and my legs are a little short for my height and it fits me perfectly, make sure you get sized professionally if you're going to get one.

    Terrain: I agree the BOB is very sexy, and if I could have afforded Cosmic Carbone Ultimate's as well I would have gone with that! Then again BOB doesnt quite have the wank factor that you want when dropping 11K on a bike, thats just me

    Config: Agreed! i have an ok camera, I will take some good shots after my ride on Saturday and post them then

    Good Point... I did bling with my first Pin a Prince Spanish Champion. Just heard from the lbs that my 537 will be shipped by the end of this week.

    nice! what kit are you getting with it?

    I had to wait a month for the Most bars after everything else was in - there are shipping delays out of europe at the moment ... so patience might be a virtue

    Congrats. I picked up my Dogma (same color scheme) in Oct 2010. I haven't seen too many others on the road. Here's some pics showing the color better from my earlier post.

    Enjoy the ride!

    yeah the most bar is great - so comfortable, especially when climbing with your hands near the stem - definently worth the money if you ahve a pinarello or just want to bling your bike. Fortunately my hands and geometry suit the most bar so I understand why some people cant have one - but they are fantastic

    Just back from Treviso after picking up a similar Dogma from the Pinarello team. Everyone really nice. Giovanni himself came out to watch my final fitting. Great trip. Worth doing if you fancy feeling very special.

    You know what I found interesting at Pinarello? Massimo in the fitting area set me slightly lower (Seat height etc.) in the bike than I am used to. Can't work out yet what I think about it. My LBS here in Switzerland set me up a lot higher on my old BMC frame. Anyone have any thoughts on this? I have a a couple of 60 - 80k rides this w/e on which to test it out.

    Thanks LV. I am keen to test the bike and fingers crossed it will be a positive experience.

    Ha ha I had the reverse, they didnt have 464 so I got mine I've been up Coot-tha a good few times now and the thing hammers, it just feels so smooth and fast (well comparatively with me on it).

    So how did you rides go? what did you think of the revised height? bike fit is such an individual thing that changes as you do, flexability etc...

    I'm so jealous you got to go and do that, could it be argued that the guys at Pinarello know how to fit their own bikes?

    I also have to agree with Louis - it is truly an amzing machine - soaks up bumps better than my Specialized Roubaix and it is faster than the pure race bikes I have ridden and I have done a couple of century rides on it and it is great and leaves me relatively fresh (for a ride that long).

    I have a ride from Brisbane to Malaney (mountain top) in a few weeks and its 130k each way with proper mountains in between so I will give a real review then and hopefully have some great photo's taken with a proper camera this time.

    Great to hear everyone is loving their Dogma's - I havent read a single bad review

    Hi - interesting ride (BTW - am an Aussie living in Switzerland) . . . only got to do a quick 55k Saturday as Sunday rain killed the 70k plan. I felt very compact on the bike. Couple of nice medium ranked hills gave me a chance to get a better feel for things. One change I did make was to reposition my cleats before the ride. I think the minor change had some effect as the compact nature of the ride may have just changed the power point slightly on the ball of my foot. Magnificent morning here and my riding partner absolutely left me standing a few times due to fitness differential (he was on Magnesium frame). Love the campy SC11. Frame very twitchy. Need another couple of rides before playing with seat height.
    I have a plan to do the Tour du Lac (170k's) here when my wife goes to Italy for a couple of days next week.

    Yeah I found the handling "twitchy" at first but after a few rides it can only be described as telepathic - it responds as you do - once you get used to it and get your seat height right you'll love it.

    The bike saved my life the other day - I was going down Mt Coot-tha on my second lap and the wind was blowing up the mountain (a Sunday afternoon). What I hadnt realised was that because I had ridden the bike so much I had worn through all the tread on my maxxis refuse's and they were shiny! This caused me a serious problem when I came around a corner at 70km/h and got hit by a side wind that gave me a serious speed wobble - see the video of Lance Armstrong's shortcut in the tour and the rider (crucify me for not remembering who) who got a massive wobble and went down in front of him - this lasted for 40-50m and I genuinely belive that had the Dowma not been such a stable and responsive bike I would nto have been able to save myself. Suffice to say I went home and replaced the tyres.

    Very jealous about your travel plans, I hope you and your wife have a great time - apparently I need a different job!
