Pinarello sizing

Postby MREJ » Sun Feb 03, 2013 5:54 pm

I've heard it said a few times that Pinarellos "tend to be bigger for their size" than other bikes?

I must be missing something. A cm is a cm; a degree is a degree. So why would a Pinnie with certain tube lengths and angles "ride larger" than other bikes of the same dimensions?

Prob cos of the sloping top tube.
52 in sloping is like 54 standard.
