My Pinarello FP2 - With new Kysriums

Postby heathy_76 » Mon Mar 26, 2012 10:03 am

Here is my Pinarello I bought for an absolute bargain off Wiggle last year.
Upgraded with some Mavic Kysriums Elites last week from Rick Greens (not had chance to take them for a proper spin yet).
First impressions are that they are considerably lighter than the Shimano R500's they replaced.

Same as my White one.... Er only black.

Again, a bargain picked up from WIggle. Hope to post pics once I've upgraded the wheels and cleaned it.....

What wheels are you looking at out of interest?

The heart is saying these.....

.... Whilst the head these....

The plan was to keep the existing wheels (shimano RS500's) just as a winter or training wheel. I ain't been impressed with them at all and any write ups on the bike say it's the first thing that should be changed.

I know a guy rides the 50's and rates them highly, but he is in a position to chop and change them with other wheels as and when he needs to. I'm not too sure about riding 50's all through the summer, so a set of the 24's may be a more sensible option

That's my plan with the RS500's. To be honest I haven't had any problems with them (touch wood) but I would like something a bit lighter.

The 50mm RS80's look great but about £100 over my budget. I'm currently looking at Ksyrium Elites but I may consider the C24's now as they are over £100 cheaper. Thanks for that.

After the new wheels it's a new saddle; not as comfy as I'd like. Ridden on worse but I'll be looking at a Fizik (when funds allow).

Well, I've gone from some 34 spoke Bontrager wheels off my old Trek 1.1 so I've noticed quite a difference in weight. The bike just seems a bit more lively, climbs hills more easily and rolls better, I also upgraded my tyres from Bontrager Sport to a set of Michelin Pro 3's so this will also contribute to the difference.

Overall I'm very happy with them.

Just what I wanted to hear.
Hopefully I'll be giving them a spin up Mow Cop come Wednesday.
