Sometimes I wonder why I get press-releases like this. Sure, fashion is fashion and more people on bikes = a good thing. While I don’t really like the aesthetics of Pinarello‘s crooked top tube gesture or the identity of Diesel and their clientele, I can say that the all-black model would look 1000 times better with a straight blade fork and track drops. Well, maybe.
Check out the press-release and an additional photo below.
“Pinarello and Diesel together: a perfect joint venture, two Italian brands deeply rooted in the same territory…by bike they are just two hours away! We are part of two different industries: they make people feel comfortable and we make people feel tired…but we share the typical Italian creativity and the constant desire to astonish and surprise our clients!”
If Neil Denari would have designed a bicycle, this is what it’d look like. Yuck!
