Pinarello Dogma 65.1 Think 2 review

Pinarello Dogma 65.1 Think 2 Road Bike
Cycling Weekly Verdict

When it's all said and done it's hard to knock a bike that's won the Tour de France a couple times, but that wouldn't have stopped us from criticising it if we'd needed to, it's just that there really isn't much to say against the Dogma 65. It could be lighter but you know you'd be giving up on something if it was. And while the £3,699 frameset price isn't exactly cheap it has dropped £200 when compared to the previous model and is certainly plenty competitive against other similar frames.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Lighter than previous model

  • +

    Better steering

  • +

    Competitive pricing

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Not much at all

If you're going to add weight to a bike by using tubes that aren't straight you'd jolly well better know what you're doing.

So when Pinarello came out with the original asymmetric frame we admired their cojones and secretly hoped they'd got it right.

As ?the generations have ticked by it's fair to say that Pinarello has more than proved it's not a fad or even just a marketing ploy to make its bikes stand out - the bikes just ride so well; plus, who can argue with back-to-back Tour wins?
