Which one do you think is a beeter race bike?
Do you mean "beater"? It's the Pinarello. Hands down.elviento

Just kidding. The Prince certainly has better pedigree, appearance, and exotic factor. Not much more expensive in my opinion.

Don't know about the pinarello, but I have a Q race and think that it is God's Gift. It really is about the ideal race bike, the only gripe might be that it's not the most aerodynamic bike out there. Unless you HONESTLY plan to spend most of all of your races off the front, I wouldn't worry about it. For the stiffness of the Q frame it is still one of the most forgiving of the ultra-stiff group, very comparable to a CAD6. Don't know what the carbon stays will do to the frame, but if they do what they are supposed to(reduce road vibration) You will have a superlight race rocket, I think that the Q pro is in the low 2 lb range in 56cm, you will, however pay for it.
