And I thought her merkin had velcroed itself to her light bracket......
And you may well be right, but i would rather the owner confirm its a chinarello rather than someone call him out on it for no reason. Also its quite strange that citius in an above post said it wasnt fake, now hes agreeing with your thread and saying it is....he also admitted to knowing nothing about the differences that would make it fake over real.......there comes a time on a forum when some people need to wind their kneck when it comes to others bikes and just let them enjoy riding whatever they choose, be it wheels, frames, tyres etcetc instead of constantly being called out as riding fakes.
Im sure you wouldn't have been too happy if people had posted that your previous venge, tarmac, cervelo were fakes without a PM to you first to aske the question. I feel the owner of said pinarello should have been shown some respect regarding his ride, but i guess these days forum respect is no longer given as new members arrive with the "i know it all and you know nothing mantra"
Wasnt trying to come across a dick at all you just asked another poster why they thought it was a clone so i gave my opinion, im not bothered if its fake or real it certainly looks nice and thats 50% percent of the overall enjoyment for me.
Btw @jowwy it is definatley a chinese one.
Modified still further.
A bit of a cheat this one as strictly speaking it's just upgraded...
However, only the Frame, Fork & Groupset remain...
Ignore Citius he had a pop at my Zipps on my cube.
Absolutely *uck all to do with him mind
My first build
And further still.
Basic 2014 Kona Dew frame...the rest added. Light as fark. Ridiculously high seat, but that's how I like it.
Ha edited to 'fark'....for fark's sake.
My reformed Bridgestone Roadman - made into a cargo/touring bike - just put it back together after getting it back from the powdercoaters.
Hope ya'll like the double top tube addition, 3 level storage on the front, double dynamo headlamps, folding pannier basket, extended rear rack and goggly eye on the front basket.
Ongoing saga of my Roadrat. Replaced the old, short, drop specific frame for a new flat barred one. I'm generally more comfortable with flats, but you have to try stuff out! Seems to ride a fair bit better - the new frames are slightly taller at the headtube and the BB is a bit lower. And with a longer frame, grabbing the brakes is less likely to result in the backwheel lifting. Also it can take discs at the back + racks without any faff as the disc mounts are on the chainstay:
Surly disc trucker fork, and 36 spoke wheels make it a utilitarian build - it's what I had - but if I get a Christmas bonus I may jazz it up to something racier.
What tyres? Wants some fat slicks for my TCX
35mm Marathon Racers. They have a very light tread, but on the road I can't tell if they roll any different from the fully slick 35mm Kojaks they replaced. They are definately not as fragile anyhow, as I've had the sidewalls get torn a couple of times on the Kojaks. They also take up to 95psi if you want to run them hard.
