Please help me verify Pinarello F10

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Please help me verify Pinarello F10

I wouldn't say that is necessarily true.
Certainly here in New Zealand some retailers do get bikes/frames through other channels than the official importer. They are still definitely the real thing.
But as you said they could still be authenticated from the manufacturer.

the method I know if a seller is a authorized seller is that I look into in Dealers ? CICLI PINARELLO SRL here,
the seller cyclexclusive.com is not on it in Netherlands.

"Absent authentication directly from Pinarello, I think you could be satisfied this is a fake, regardless of appearance." I don't understand what it mean?

So you are going to double down with this dealer.

It means that if Pinarello cannot authenticate the frame, it is a fake.

You have your answer. I believe the avoidance of the seller to be direct is already an indication that he is scamming you.

From the Park Tool website:
Most modern bikes use an ISO thread standard for the bottom bracket. The left side thread is a right-hand direction thread, which tightens clockwise and removes counter-clockwise. This standard is also called English or BSC. The right side (drive side) thread is a left-hand thread, which tightens counter-clockwise and remove clockwise. There are some exceptions to the ISO. Bikes made in Italy may use “Italian” threading, with both drive and non-drive sides right hand thread.

Bummer. I think your recourse is limited with such payment method.
The frame may not be counterfeit, but certainly shows signs of being used.

Jury is still out on wether it's a fake or not. Maybe it's just a "reject" or "new with defect" if there is such a thing. Build it, ride it, and forget about it! Although I admit I'd always have that nagging feeling in the back of my mind...

Let me go back to my original reply - It's not a Pinarello.

Your seller didn't want Paypal because Paypal will allow you as the buyer to file a complaint and get your money back. He wanted a bank transfer because those are not reversible. He is not answering questions because it is fake. Duh. Like we have all said since the start.

You have purchased a frame of one of the most faked brands out there from a non-authorized dealer for an amount much lower than legitimate pricing. You have bought a fake. Enjoy.

Slap some "Zapp" wheels on there build it up with some "Shizmanto" components and you'll have what we like to call the "Going to the dentist" special. A real one is what we call the "I'm a dentist" special.

As seen in the other thread- OP is going to contact Pinarello on Monday. All will be resolved. Will it be a real deal/ smart shopper or embarrassing fake that should be rattle canned. The suspense....
