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

Please help me verify Pinarello F10

I bought pinarello f10 from Netherlands(I am outside Netherlands),after I got pinarello dogma f10,frameset are good,all new.but the MOST spacers and cap are low quality.
when I ask the seller to give me seller info for me to input on pinarello to registered,the seller told me it's better that he input that for me.
do you guys know why he want to do that?

plz see pics below. is this a new and not fake frameset?
is the frameset a sample?




why bar code side is not completed?


I think under yellow barcode ,there is a white color bard code.why?


MOST spacer is defective


MOST spacer is defective


seattube inside is paint-shedding



bottles screws is paint-shedding









word could be erased.


BB has a sign of color black.

He told me he wanted to do it because he is a nice guy and was just saving you the hassle of doing it.

F10 Dogma

Here is my F10 Frame I recently bought here in the states from Competitive Cyclist and one would set you back USD$6000.00..

Without detailed photos, it is anyone's guess. No one can say.

Generally, you don't get what you don't pay for.

Take it to your local Pinarello agent. I am sure they wouldn't mind verifying the frame, even if you didn't get it from them.

Have you tried to contact Pinarello with the serial number? Weighing the frame and fork and comparing what you get to the specs for that frame is another good way to ID a fake - it should be pretty close to advertised weight.

I paid USD$6000.00 just for the frame set and the group set was all extra etc etc etc... Usually if it is to good to be true, its not ...!

If you have so much doubt, return it. If you cannot return it, just put it together and ride it.

Chinarellos are all over the place. If you're paying less than bank for a "new" Pinarello then it's a Chinarello.

I've seen tons of them over the years. Got one guy who rides his daily. Chainstays aren't even in spec length so the group doesn't work well. He spins around on it using his "DURA-ACE 50" wheels with Novatech hubs.

OP - you could have spent $3k on a really good frame of different make direct from a dealer and you wouldn't have this issue.

In China,$4200 for pinarello f10 frameset at most. Real pinarello f10,not fake. If bargain more,$3800 would be a good deal.is there any defective problems like my pics above?

I just really believe the reseller which is cyclexclusive.com
I think the frameset is real,but because he is not authorized seller, if I inpit cyclexclusive as retailer,pina will not let me go through.so I think cyclexclusive.com register the frame as his upper authorized seller info. .....

If someone is not authorized to sell new Pinarellos, how would he acquire one to sell? Especially at a reduced price. Absent authentication directly from Pinarello, I think you could be satisfied this is a fake, regardless of appearance.
