Hate to part with this pretty, head-turning Pinarello Trionfo, but alas, I’ve to make room in my apartment. I’ve had dudes on 10-thousand dollar rides stop me so they may gawk at this lovely and rare creature: Pino’s only flat-bar road bike. I’ve come to refer to her as “my Italian girlfriend” for a couple of reasons: she’s beautiful, she has amazing curves, and she’s at all times treated me right.
Best of all, this Italian looker is versatile. Whether you’re commuting across the city or spinning on a paceline as much as Nyack, this stylish ride will serve you well.
Lightly used. Did I mention she’s in great shape? I hate riding a dirty bike so I wiped clean her up after each ride. Yes, that is an immaculate piece of machinery. Full disclosure: there’s one small scratch at the rear derailleur. Imagine it a love bite. As opposed to that this baby is as good as new. I replaced the unique unused Pinarello saddle and tires but am happy to refit the bike with the ones, in the event you so desire. The rear cassette is now a Shimano 11X30 which is sufficient to get you up the steepest hills, on the other hand, I do have the unique unused cassette (12X25- barely used) and can replace that as well.
Pinarello’s older version of the flat-bar road bike, the Treviso, leans way more to the commuter side of the equation, as does the present model Treviso. This Trionfo, now discontinued, is a rare and sporty bird.
The 6061T6 aluminum frame is light, strong and comfortable. It’s so well finished that the general public think it’s carbon fiber. The handsome matte black finish and yellow accents can have some convinced you’ve borrowed Tour de France winner Chris Froome’s ride. That’s if truth be told happened to me. I suggest you carry ownership papers always, just so you don’t get accused of theft.
Size: 58cm. I’m 6’3 and found this to be very comfortable ride. It may easily accommodate any person on either side of 6’0”.
