It's outrageously overpriced! Nice looking rig though.

I agree with RIDE that it is ridiculously overpriced. It has a $9000 MSRP and the thing is lightweight aluminum.
So, a professional racer would get maybe 2-3 years at best out of this frame. This bike is a prime example of overpricing but Pinarello doesn't get criticized like other high priced manufacturers. A carbon or ti frame will last much longer and cost 1/2 as much. I recognize it is a limited edition of sorts and I love the way it looks. It looks terribly mean in all black. If I had that much $ to piss away, I would buy it to just look at it but in my practical world I will settle for a lowly LS Vortex. LOL
I have to say this is one scary looking rigLazywriter

It really is a awesome looking bike and worth looking at for those who haven't seen it. I wonder how many of these they will actually sell to an everyday consumer (with loads of cash). If exclusivity is what is important to you, I bet you will never see one of these on the roads. Truly stunning but the pricing is crazy.
so pretty...collinsc

to hell with the price tag, i dont need a car....

anyone know any of the real specifics? like what does the frame weigh? the full bike? (who will donate to the chad-needs-a-prince-ls-fund?)

ahhh crap, that sucks. limited editions are stupid. let it be expensive as all get out, i dont care, if they made me the 101st id pony up the cash...

fortunately for me there is another prince in mostly all black, and that will have to do i guess.
