Any comments or riders on a Pinarello Opera?(8 posts)

Any comments or riders on a Pinarello Opera?PC in Dallas
Aug 3, 2001 10:36 AM
I'm thinking of ordering one. Before I endure the long 5 to 6 month wait on a custom color. I wanted to get some feedback. I like steel and the Italian tradition. It sux that standard colors are considered custom.

I have an opera. A standard color is custom ? You must be buying from someone with very limited colors offered? The opera has quite a few colors that are not custom. It all depends on who you buy it from.

How do you like the Opera? Can you compare it to other bikes you had. I, too, am thinking about getting one and would like to know more about the way it rides, etc. Thanks.

I think Robert Millar's write up on it last year in "pro cycling" is a good explanation of it. If you don't have it i can send it to you. Let me know your line speed (file size). It is the May 2000 issue. My other bikes are a Neo Pro DeRosa and Fondriest Status.

is there a place in dallas where you have ridden a Pinarello? i've been looking at the Prince and Opera, but i'd like to test out the frames, and i haven't found a place here in austin to check them out...

If you like the feel of steel, you'll like the Opera. I'm riding the Opera, Paris, and Prince (I owne the shop; just one of the perks).
The Opera comes in a silver/gry and white to blue Fasso color. I would not get into the custom color stuff. I have a blue Prince on order that is going on 6 months; not go there. At this point in the the, I don't think you will get it.
