Pinarello OK with existing UCI weight limit

Pinarello road frames

Other bicycle manufacturers may claim the UCI's 6.8kg minimum weight limit demonstrates it is out of touch with the moden world, but not Fausto Pinarello.

"I always sleep at night because my frame [the Dogma] doesn't weigh 700g," he said. "It's closer to 850 or 900g." Pinarello nevertheless concedes that the limit could be slightly less than 6.8kg, and bikes would still be safe.
