Life is too short to not have a Pinarello!

Posted05 April 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great
Cons: not sure about saddle yet
Finally, proof that there is a God! For it is only He that could create something so beautiful and (nearly) perfect. I upgraded to this bike after having bought a Cube Attempt two years ago which to be fair to it was an excellent bike for the money. The Pinarello looks stunning and the Ultegra gear is much more responsive than the 105 set I had on the Cube. Braking is similarly also much more responsive. The bike feels to handle a lot better and I know it sounds quite daft but it is as if the frame 'sings' as you push along. I agree with the comment from a previous writer that the ride position is one more for comfort and distance which is exactly what I wanted as I am in training to complete a 300 mile Newcastle to London ride in 24 hours this August. The ONLY negative comment I would have is that the saddle is less than comfortable but it may well be just a case of getting used to it (?). If anyone would like to sponsor my ride in support of Help for Heros you can do so on the just giving website, thanks in advance if you do.

Finally, the guys at Evans Gateshead were very helpful, as always, and they make relative novices like me feel comfortable about asking stupid questions!! So go on, buy a Pinarello or at least use the credit facilty on offer as life really is too short to not have one of these toys!

Very Comfortable Ride

Posted05 May 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
The Rokh is a superbe bike that is very comfortable on long rides, it has a slightly raised ride position and it eats the bumps up before you get them were it hurts. The Shimano Ultegra set is very responsive as we all expect from Shimano. I have riden about 700 miles on mine and am yet to find fault. A great bike.
