Pinarello Factory Tour, 2009
A visitor's photos from a Pinarello factory tour in 2009. His comments:
"While no frame fabrication was being performed, there were still some items of interest. Inside the Pinarello factory there is quite a bit to see including stacks of raw CF frames, a computer-aided design station, assembly areas, specialized fatigue-testing equipment used to test randomly selected frames and components, and a high-tech painting and decaling areas. You can also still see experienced craftsman using custom jigs to check quality and tolerances on each CF frame prior to painting."
