This week we’re featuring a new Pinarello Dogma F8 for RT. We’ve built quite a few of these this year and continue to be impressed by the bike from Treviso, Italy.
This is a 55cm frame in the Black on Black (BoB) finish.
We used the group set off of the customers older 65.1 Dogma which swapped out perfectly. It will be interesting to hear his remarks after coming directly off the F8’s predecessor.
The bike was built up as such:
*Campagnolo Super Record Cassette (12X27), rear derailleur, brake/shift levers, bottom bracket cups and brakes.
*Campagnolo Record chain
*Campagnolo Chorus front dérailleur
*Campagnolo SRM, 172.5 and 53X39
*Look Carbon Blade pedals with Ti spindle
*Zipp 202 Firecrest wheels with Continental GP4000SII tires (700X25) and Zipp titanium skewers
*Zipp SL70 bar and stem
*Fizik Super Light bar tape
*Bar Fly Garmin mount
*Arundel Mandible bottle cages
*And for some inexplainable reason a specialized saddle. We’re working on this one…
In the end the bike as it sits comes in at a very respectable 15.54lbs which is very good considering the power meter and aluminum bars.
If you want to do it right, this is the way to go; Campagnolo SRM.
The Zipp SL70 bar and stem are on of our favorites if you want to go aluminum. They have a super short reach at 70mm, a good drop shape and low key blacked out graphics which you really want on a blacked out bike.
Not an ONDA fork anymore, but still a bit wavy…
The internal seat post clamp works extremely well, but make sure to heed the torque spec of 4nm as it’s a powerful wedge.
One tip; if you want to run wider tires (25’s or 28’s) make sure to spec the single pivot rear brake on your Campagnolo builds. We could not fit 25’s on this bike with the dual pivot caliper but w/ the single pivot we can go up to 28’s.
Thanks for reading!
