If it is a classic and beautiful handmade racing bicycle you are looking for, Pinarello could be your answer.
From 1952 Pinarello has been building quality road and track racing bikes from its factory in Treviso, Italy.
The company is one of the most successful in the history of the Tour de France, with Oscar Pereiro, Jan Ullrich, Pedro Delgado, Bjarne Riss and Miguel Indurain all successfully piloting Pinarello bikes to the podium.
Pinarello has had plenty of involvement with professional racing sponsorships, most famously with the Telekom team that dominated racing in 1996 and 1997.
Heading the Pinarello range in 2009 is the Prince Carbon, an incredibly light (6700 grams) but powerful and responsive unit that is now the ride of choice for many professional cyclists.
Also growing in popularity is the 2009 FP3 model, which can be customized according to preferred groupset and which is considered to be very fast.
The success of Pinarello’s current range suggests the company will continue to provide cycling innovations for a long time into the future.
