Anybody know where I can find a good history of Pinarello? I have what I beleive to be a mid-90s Radius and am looking for information on it as well as the company as a whole.

Thanks,
TF

can't really help with the model. But Pinarello's website has a history section.

The Radius was Pinarello's top of the line steel frameset in the latter part of the '90's. The tubeset was manufactured by Dedacciai and was unique in that it had a unique shape, including some square sections. This tubeset was developed with input from Dario Pegoretti, who had worked with Pinarello's pro teams during the '90's. There is a good history of Pinarello on the Pinarello website. They have manufactured some of the winningest bikes in the pro ranks for many years now. Their first major win was the '80 Giro by Bataglin, followed by Alexi Grewal in the '84 Olympics and, of course, seven straight TDF wins through the '90's.

Don't forget Pedro Delgado in the '88 TDF...I still love that red and white machine.
