If you don't know what bike you want at that price you're spendung too much. Get something cheaper till you know what you want.

The guy's asking for a spread of opinion, not financial advice. He can spend what he wants, there are no rules around who is "allowed" to spend what on a bike.

Mosa, the Pinarello is more bling but you're getting a better spec. of components for your money with Focus I would have thought. The best thing, if you can, is to ride them both and see which one suits you the better. Which one would make you most excited and inspired to ride it?

To answer your question, if it was a straight choice between those two I'd probably go for the Focus, mostly because the Pinarello in my mind is a bit too flashy for me and I think you're paying for the name not necessarily for the product.....kind of fur coat no knickers.

I would probably get the focus, providing it fitted. I like di2.
But what about the prices? is there much difference?
Tbh I think all pinarellos look gash. It wouldn't stop me buying one if the price and spec was right, but theyre usually well overpriced too so I always see better options.
