Thought we’d take some time today to tell you about one other great project bike that we’ve got sitting in the showroom that we would love to find a great home for in time for the holidays.
It’s a 56cm, 2008 Pinarello Paris Carbon in the very limited silver colorway that you’re not likely to see in other places. It’s rare to see a carbon frame with finish quality this high. Even up close every square millimeter of the Paris Carbon has a flawless finish and a luxurious shine. A family of frames from Pinarello that were originally developed in thin walled aluminum, the Paris Carbon is a sub-1000-gram frame fabricated from Toray Japanese 46HM3K Carbon. That’s high-modulus carbon with a tensile strength of 46 tons per square cm (46HM), and an exterior weave of 3000 weaves per crossing (3K). The Prince Carbon features Pinarello’s Onda bend fork and rear stays, but the curves are somewhat less dramatic than a chassis like the new Dogma Carbon.
We decked this Italian dream bike out with, what else, Campagnolo 11-speed (Chorus level)! Then we added silver Campagnolo Eurus wheels Deda Newton stem and bar, MOST seatpost and FSA saddle.
This Paris Carbon was originally $7900 and we’re now letting it go for much less. If you're interested give us a call @ 415.389.5461 if you're unsure of the geometry or parts selection, email or just come by the shop.
