Back in March, here, we discussed the topic of the fake Pinarello bikes coming out of Asia. The fake Dogmas could be identified by slight differences from the real Pinarello bikes. With the Pinarello release of the new Dogma2 the counterfeiters have also become more precise and the visual differences between a real Dogma2 and a fake is becoming much more difficult to determine.
Buy only from authorized dealers to ensure you are not buying a fake Pinarello.
Pinarello now has addeed this statement on their website:
