Road Race Category Winner: Pinarello Dogma
USA's BICYCLING magazine has selected the Pinarello Dogma as the "road race" category winner. What they said:
"As Pinarello's most exotic bike yet, the new Dogma incorporates a unique, asymmetrical Toryaca 60HM1K carbon frame through a process where each side of the bike is constructed independently. This process is meant to equalize load and torque distribution throughout the frame and fork without affecting ride quality. Our riders consistently marveled at the bike's handling and road feel.
It's still arguably the most comfortable pure race bike in existence, but the new Asym design has added a bit more stiffness in all the perfect places.
The Dogma shines once you've been riding for more than two hours--and it shines brighter as you throw different kinds of road surfaces at it."
