    First of all this might sound bias but it is the honest truth. I like everything about the Dogma F12!!! It is my dream bike for crying out loud!

    But let us take "me" out of the equation so that there won't be any bias. I will share with you an extract from one of the best road bike review website https://sportskem.com

    The Frame Composition

    The Dogma F12 is know to be aggressive and a very fast road bike with its carbon fiber frame consisting of Pinarello’s Torayca Nanoalloy. The Nanoalloy makes the bike very durable because it is made up of nanoparticles embedded in the carbon fiber mesh and will explode on impact to protect the fiber from breakage. Pinarello now has all right to be proud that their nanoalloy allows their carbon fiber to be 59% more resistant to breaking than conventional fibers.

    You might realize that I only focus on the frame composition but if you wish you can read the full article in the link above. What is very fascinating is Pinarello torayca nanoalloy. Can you imagine riding your expensive Dogma F12 and then suddenly you have a nasty crash and break your precious carbon fiber? Well, with the nanoalloy you don't have to worry about your carbon fiber if you crash. However, this is not an excuse to go out there and crashing your Dogma F12. I broke a bone the last time I crashed. Does any one own a Dogma F12? i would like to hear about your experience.

    Very fast? You mean a person average speed could actually increase dramatically just from riding this bike? $13,000 for a bike should increase what percentage of average speed over a $2,000 bike?

    The speed increase says 1 second over a kilometer. Frame alone $7,000 to save 1 second over a kilometer?

    That means if I reach down to turn on my video recorder, I just wasted $7000 ! :D:p:D No thanks!

    WHAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTT??? you're not going to spend $7,000 for a frame to save a second every click? You're craaaaazzzzzzzy maaaannn!

    What's weird is that a fully equipped Dog cost more than a lot of motorcycles, Geez you get a nice Suzuki Boulevard M50 for almost 1/2 the price for the Dog. Or if speed is your thing you could get a fantastic Erik Buell Racing 1190 RX motorcycle for less than $12,000 that will take you to 184 mph.

    When I look at those two motorcycles the thought that smacks me upside the head is...how is it that those two motorcycles has a 1,000 times more technology than any bike including a $15,000 Dog cost less than a Dog? Can we say "we're being taken to the cleaners by the bicycle industry"?

    Any time I see post on bikes for weekend warriors that cost more than a nice late model Corolla I start laughing. The only way I would ride that is if given to me. I will keep pounding out my remodeled Trek Madone. Not a Pinny but that’s okay.
