    Anyone ride a Dogma or own one? I am considering it and wanted to get opinion. Worth the money?

    Bicycling magazine liked the bike if that means anything to you.

    Saw the review in Bicycling, and noted the Dogma uses an FSA Megatech Oversized BB with an FSA crank. This is the same setup I have bike, a custom frame built locally by SANO. I think the OS BB is an improvement over the cartridge-style BB in terms of bearing life, stiffness and overall frame strength; glad to see Pinarello is using a US-developed BB design and crankset on their high-end frame.

    Hello,
    I bought one here in France and after about 1000 kms the frame cracked near the BB and left chain stay. It was still under guarantee and Pinarello sent me a new one from Italy free of charge. It's a pretty frame and rides very smoothly even on rough, uneven terrain while remaining very stiff. It's stiffness has been a critical point in that it requires some horsepower to keep speed and momentum going notably during climbs. I'd say that in that respect it's a demanding frame but replies with beautiful handling and comfortable rigidity provided you've got the watts to push it. Worth it? Very subjective question, to me it has been although I concede that it is vastly overpriced.
