TdF Team Sky Steed - Pinarello Dogma F8

While not a Team Sky edition Dogma F8, this red Italian beauty is incredible in every regard. 
Even if red is not you're favorite color, it's hard to imagine a better looking frameset. The photos in this gallery are unable to fully represent the stunning depth of color that is evident when seeing this frame in person. 

Build Specs:
- 2016 Pinarello Dogma F8 Frame/Fork/Seatpost
- Shimano Dura Ace Di2 9070/9000 groupset
- Rotor Bike QXL rings
-Stages Cycling power meter
- Enve stem
- 3T Aeronova Stealth Drop bar
- Dash Carbon saddle
- Enve SES 6.7 Carbon Clinchers
- Arundel Cages
The Ride:
Imagine three separate bikes, each of which is created for optimization of one specific variable:
1. precise steering and handling. 2. power-transfer / efficiency 3. Smooth-Operating 

It's difficult to imagine a single frameset having a Better balance of these 3 variables.

F-S-B: Custom Spec'd Orbea Orca

IBB  "FIT --> SPEC --> BUILD"
Bob's Orca

We began with an IBB Watts-based Dynamic Bike Fto establish Bob's ideal road riding fit 'coordinates'. 

From there we looked at frame geometries, with the Orca in size 51 coming at the top of the list. 

We then took time with Bob to spec out and discus the details of his custom build. 

Was a pleasure working with you Bob!

FIT --> SPEC --> BUILD: Argon 18 Nitrogen Gallery


For us, the Argon 18 Gallium and Gallium Pro road and TT/Tri bikes still set the "standard" for how a road bike ought to ride.  How it should climb, how it should handle on high speed descents, how efficiently it should transfer power, and last but not least, how it should feel on rough surfaces.  

In regards to these standard-setting ride characteristics, the new-for-2015 Nitrogen aero road bike is right on par with its "Climber-Counterpart", the Gallium Pro.  With Shimano Di2 Groupset (mix of Ultegra and Dura Ace), Profile Design Twenty-Four 58mm Carbon Clinchers, and 3T Aeronova Bars, a medium weighs in at an astonishing 15.7 pounds!  

If you're at all in the market for a road or TT/Tri bike, the Argon 18 line should absolutely be considered.  The heart and soul of our shop, the FIT --> SPEC --> BUILD process, continues to turn out flawless complete bike solutions that not only look incredible, but perhaps most importantly, fit perfectly.  
This Custom Spec'd Argon 18 Nitrogen is a fine example of the results of that process.

Enjoy the pics below.
