Feels Great Rides Great. Worth the extra money

PostedApril 25, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Having always been a MTB fan. Switching to road biking took some convincing. But one trip out on the Ultegra has convinced me what I was missing.
It is light, agile and easy to use.
100% recommend to anyone.

Pros: Good quality, Looks great, responsive, beautiful
I love cycling, but I'll be honest, I've never ridden a road bike and have been riding hybrids for years. I should not have worried because within minutes it just felt natural. This is a beautiful bike and a real treat to ride. Sure, once somebody figured out that stealthy black with red accents really looks cool on a bike, it would inevitably be seen on a few models. However, Pinarello's curvaceous suggestions and wave inspired forks give this machine a special allure that few can match.
Riding the bike is so responsive and it gives me a lot of confidence as I accelerate out of corners. It's not as light as I might have thought, but it is light and (as some have already mentioned), the quality of the wheels does not match the rest of the other components. Simple economics I suppose. So wheels will likely be my next upgrade.
If you are looking for a fast, responsive race bike and you've had you're head turned by its sultry looks, then I implore you to at least try this bike out. You will really like it!

Sublime ride experience

PostedNovember 17, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Looks great
Cons: standard wheels, compact should be a standard double
I brought the 2011 model in British Cycling colours. This being my first carbon frame bike I was blown away at the way it rides. It is difficutl to pin point what exactly the bike does to improve the ride experience but I have cover on average 150 miles a week in Summer months and am addicted to the way it rides. The frame is stiff giving instant response when you push hard.
Others report that the standard factory supplied wheels let the bike down and I would agree. This will be my first up-grade.
I still ride my old Ali frame bike in the winter, but miss the responsive and light feel of my Pinarello. Climbing on this bike sees me using gears that I just cant push on my old bike.
My only regret is not having got one with a standard rather than the compact set. Maybe this is up-grade number 2.
My advise if you are thnking of buying one.....
Buy it now..... Your life is not complete with out a Pinarello
Awesome

Good bike, beware sizing.

PostedJuly 3, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
Cons: Expensive, low end wheelset
The Pinarello FP Quattro is a good bike. The Shimano Ultegra groupset on the fantastic frame makes for a responsive and smoothe race machine. Not only does it ride great, it looks great.
Beware the size chart for this bike. The bike comes with a very long stem (approx. 14 cm). This is enormous and will really stretch you out if you buy your normal frame size (for top tube) and would normally have a 9 cm stem on it. I am 5' 9" with normal proportions and I initially bought a 56cm frame (at the top end of my size). I had to return the bike for a 54cm frame and I still may change the stem to one that is a bit smaller.
The only other negative is the wheelset. Essentially campagnolo Khamsin wheels. On a bike of this price, one would expect better (lighter) wheels. I will keep them for training and invest in better wheels in the future.

This product has good design and graphics.

PostedJuly 2, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
Pinarello Quattro 2012 Bob is one of the most beautiful frame design and graphics among same level other products.
2013 Pinarello has already announced but I think it is not good graphics than 2012 models. This is a just my opinions.

What a bike!
Posted January 15, 2014
The Pinarello FP Quattro was my first road bike, so I would not be able to compare with any other. However, I just loved it from the very first minute I test ride it: the bike is so responsive and gets you up to speed in no time. I would argue the heavy wheels point: yes it might be annoying for a pure racer, but for an entry level road cyclist, they will absolutely do the job.
Shimano demonstrates once again its superiority on the market with the Ultegra groupset that will make you shift like a king! Handling is clean and cornering will become a second nature.
What's really striking about this bike is its look! Just stylish...
If you think of entering road cycling (and you have the budget of course). this is a no-brainer...
Just love it!!!!!
