For the Dogma 65.1 Think2, Pinarello uses a Japanese carbon that’s more rigid and reactive than anything it has ever used on a bike frame — Torayca’s all-new 65-ton 65HM1K Nano-alloy Carbon Fiber. The improved rigidity allows Pinarello to save weight, by using less carbon fiber in key areas. With this new cloth, Pinerallo hones the asymmetrical shaping of the Dogma bloodline to create a bike that is stiffer, lighter, and even more responsive than its predecessor. One big change is in the Dogma 65.1’s top tube, which has been moved slightly off-center toward the right ride of the bike. FEA (finite element analysis) confirmed that this asymmetrical design was beneficial in leveling the variances in frame deflection from one side to the other.

Pinarello also improved the aerodynamics and stiffness of the Dogma’s front end. The headset bearing has been lowered (1.5 inch) which gives the Dogma 65.1 a larger diameter steerer tube at the fork crown. This increases stiffness in the front by roughly 19% and results in a more precise steering feel and predictable braking. The 65.1 also features more aerodynamic fork legs and a sculpted crown that integrates seamlessly into the reshaped down tube. Furthermore, the Dogma 65.1 Think2 offers internal cable routing for both mechanical and electronic groupsets, without any penalty to the bike's aesthetic or its aerodynamic profile. This is done with interchangeable cable stops at the frame openings that are capable of being swapped out should you prefer SRAM Red for one season, then Campagnolo Super Record EPS the next.

The Pinarello Dogma 65.1 Think2 Road Bike Frame comes standard with the road-dampening Onda 2 asymmetrical carbon fiber fork, a Pinarello integrated 1-1/8 to 1.5in press-in headset, and a Dogma 2 carbon fiber seatpost. It requires an Italian bottom bracket and a braze-on front derailleur.

Without a doubt, this is the most incredible machine that I've ever ridden. I went with a slightly larger than usual frame as I like a little more wheelbase, and I've not been disappointed. My first long ride on the Dogma was a 200K brevet on rough central Texas roads, and it failed to disappoint. Normally, I would never have taken a full-on race rig on this type of ride, and the bike certainly felt like a pure bred race bike; however, the biggest surprise was how comfortable I remained at the 100 mile mark!

Enough cannot be said about how GOOD this bike truly is!! With that being said, I'm a little disappointed with the paint on my BoB. I've had a lot paint chip on the fork around the front brakes. This may just be me nit-picking, but Pinarello has always been known for their paintwork, and I expected a little bit more from them in the department. Like I said though, this is just me nit-picking, and this may be an isolated occurrence.

Competitive Cyclist have made me a life time customer with this purchase! They have been MORE then helpful and accommodating along the way. Replacing everything from stems that were the wrong size (my fault) as well as saddles that didn't fit right, Competitive Cyclist have truly been the best retailer I've dealt with to date.


Best bike overall to date

    I have owned lots of bikes in the past few years from most major brands including some from Pinarello, but not the dogma. I don't usually write reviews, but after riding this bike, I said to myself that review is a must. First of, the guys at competitive are amazing with the level of customer support. I always deal with Josh C. and he knows his Pinarellos in and out.

    I have only had a limited riding trial with this bike, I have it built with 11 speed di2 as well as the new reynolds 46 aero wheels. There not one aspects that really stands out, but overall it has an amazing feel to the bike. Great acceleration, stability, stiffness, but not so that you feel beat up by it. It is like I combined different aspects from 4 of my other road bikes together and it all came together into this one bike.

    If you can afford it, look no further. Josh at x 4365 will never stear you in the wrong direction no matter what your riding styles or interestes are.

    I spent a summer on this frame, and there were lots of qualities that were great, but one thing always stood out - it's just solid. It feels almost weirdly-solid in corners, out of the saddle climbing/sprinting, over rough ground, etc. It seems so simple (and not exotic like you'd expect a Dogma review to read), but after you ride one, you look back at all the previous bikes you've owned and realize they just weren't that solid. One big grin and two thumbs up.

    Is no longer steel. I?m a little young to have sampled the frames Pinarello chiseled from the earth?s crust for Der Kaiser, but I now understand what riders talk about when they say ??it?s a Pina,? and reference their Torayca-laid wunderbikes.

    I?ll admit, I used to be a bit of a hater. ?Oh, nearly all carbon frames ride the same?, I?d preach, whenever consulted about the purported dream-like quality of the newer Pinarellos. Of course, I?d never had a real chance to swing a leg over one. Now, thanks to their generous sponsorship, I was finally able to sample the bikes many only get to fantasize about.

    Down to brass tacks. This frame is a mind-blower. My first time on it, with too-big bars and stem, it was still an epic experience. Stepping on the cranks provides razor-sharp response from the bike, but without the feeling of being beaten around on the pavement. It?s not mushy like a lot of carbon bikes - I?ve never once looked back at my rear wheel thinking I?ve gotten a flat. No waifish chainstays here. From the front end, the massive 1.5? tapered headtube and fork steerer rail corners with nary a hint of flex.

    The bike strikes a perfect balance, in my opinion, between all the polar qualities of a superb all-around race bike. The geometry is incredibly well-balanced. It?s stable on descents and when taking a no-handed feed, but not to the point of feeling slow in corners or in the pack. It?s comfortable over the long haul, but not comfortable enough that you lose road feedback or stiffness. The fit and finish is second-to-none?I often find myself gazing at the bass-boat silver paint accents and getting a little lost.

    Is it heavy? Hell yes it is. But when building it to 15lbs isn't hard with a nice group and decent wheels, I'd prefer to shed grams elsewhere. The ride more than makes up for the weight savings relative to the paper-thin 800g available, in my never-humble opinion.

    Buy the Dogma. You won't regret it.

    I have both a Dogma 2 and a Dogma 65.1.

    When I first purchased my Dogma 2, I was stunned at how it rode. It combines both comfort and speed. While it is NOT the fastest bike from Zero to 25 mph, it is the easiest bicycle I've ever rode to sustain a speed. The cycling mechanics are incredibly smooth on this bike and the same is true on the Dogma 65.1. Once you achieve your speed, the bike rides itself. I've also discovered that it is the most comfortable bike I've ever ridden in the drops and it is, by far, the most stable bike going down hills at high speeds (i.e. 50 mph feels like 30 mph).

    The Dogma 65.1, in contrast to the Dogma 2, is stiffer and is a little faster from Zero to 25 MPH. When I take long endurance rides (over 60 miles), I take the Dogma 2 because it is (slightly) more comfortable. However, I prefer the Dogma 65.1.

    As for the finish, I don't think there is any bicycle finished as well as the Pinarello Dogma's. If you want the Italian finish, you need to own a high end Italian bicycle.

    Lastly, if up to date engineering is important to you, then you get it with the Dogma 65.1. No other bike has 65 ton carbon or the degree of asymmetrical design. While all this engineering means nothing if it doesn't ride well, the truth is that it rides superbly.

    The one downside to the Dogma 65.1 is that if you try it, you will "NEED" to own it.

    Unanswered Question

    On a 62 cm frame what is the maximum distance from BB (center) to seat clamp. Great stack and TTT on this frame but it looks like the seat post is an integral part of the frame and I need to ensure I have enough leg room at 36" inseam.

    Can I use a bb30 sram red22 quarq power...

    Can I use a bb30 sram red22 quarq power meter crank with this frame ?
