Hi.. I have been riding for a year now and about to make the biggest investment in my life. I am not sure which bike to purchase. Pinarello Angliru with Duel wheelset and Campag Veloce Groupset....or Cinelli Proxima with Campag Scirico wheelset and Xenon groupset.

Any advice for me??

guess what my answer's gonna be hehePinarelloparis

thanks for the feedback. The Pinarello deal is 1000 pound purchased online from and the Cinelli will cost me about the same price in my LBS in Australia.

Fausto Pinarello is making some of the hottest bikes going...not only his Pinarello mark, but also Opera bike. IMHO, Cinelli was a great bike, but is rather late in coming into the modern design and materials market, and for my money, Pinarello is definitely the brand to buy. FWIW, I would personally get the Prince or Opera.

So give us a ride report, please! I've never even seen one for sale!

As for me, my choice is also Pinarello (guess which one).

How much will that cost you?

I toyed with the idea of getting a Colnago C40 from Maestor, yet the shipping and GST costs eroded the discount.

Apparently prices in UK are marked up by 17.5% VAT tax and it will be deducted when they ship it out of UK. The quotation for delivery that i got was 80 pound.

Do you think i will need to pay for GST if they ship it to my home address as a normal parcel?
