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

Well, already knowing the dealer he bought from is a non-authorized seller (and therefore not caring about MAP), and presuming that the US dealer selling at $5K is still making a good margin; I don't think anyone could in itself say that a 3200 Euro price is impossible for a real frameset.

Even though Pinarello has confirmed it's a legit serial number, it doesn't sound as if you are going to be happy with the frame. Why not return it and start fresh? Lots of nice bikes out there.

Thats exactly what I told him to..! Send the darn thing back and get your cash. The way he was forced to pay for it, i highly doubt he will ever see a penny back.

some rider in Taiwan told me that he was severing for Taiwanese for pinarello f10 maintain ,real bike and fake bike.He said my bike frame is real,the fake is low quality.
see from bolt screws and the line through hole could distinguish real and fake.

maybe I will keep it and build it.
ride tens of years.....

If the seller won't take it back, you have few options other than riding it or hanging it on the wall. At this point you couldn't sell it for anywhere close to what you paid, you may as well try to enjoy it!
