Pinarello Paris Hilton... would you ride it?Akirasho

Pinarello is bringing back the Paris... as the Paris Hilton... which will be priced above the vaunted Dogma Ego... and be of particular interest to crit racers since it will be easy to lay down...

Be the bike.

The price of entry would be very high.

Would be high maintenance as well.
Just watch out for the cameras!rogue_CT1

I hope it's not as hard to ride as Paris Hilton. That Paris seems more interested in playing up to the camera than getting in good saddle time.
I wouldn't bike an overly used bike, like a Pinn Paris (nm)PaulCL

From what I've seen it wouldn't be much fun to ride (nm)carpe_podium

It doesn't like the frame could hold up to a hard ride. I'd be scared to snap it in half.

will sue!
I think the rear would be too flexy....funknuggets

The build is way too slight for stronger riders. That rear end would really sway when you start to hammer. Not for me, I need some shape and substance to the rear triangle on my ride.

what about the front triangle? ;) nmrufus

I'm afraid I'd split it like a dry piece of cedar (nm)Crankist
