This bike makes my pants wanna get up and dance. Seriously. I want to straddle that sucker like other aging schlubs like me want to drive a Lamborghini with a Playmate in the passenger seat. If I could afford a midlife-crisis road bike, the Pinarello Dogma would probably be on my short list of hot things that are faster than I deserve.
But I call bullshit on the ad campaign Pinarello is using to market this lust-worthy machine.
They're calling it "the world's first asymmetric bicycle." What the hell?
I guess they've never heard of the Wildfire Fatbike, or its better-known clone, the Surly Pugsley. You want asymmetry? Try having your seat stays drop about two-thirds of the way to the axle before detouring a couple of inches to the right.
Fatbikes might be the chubby chicks who never got invited to the prom, but they were proudly letting one side hang differently than the other for years before Pinarello started flashing its lopside Italian D cups.
