Attila Hadju’s Customer Testimonial and Initial Di2-Dogma Impressions
Remember that awesome Pinarello Di2-Dogma My Way special? The owner was kind enough to send some photos of the completed bike and his initial impressions of the bike. All in all, turnaround was quicker than expected for a My Way paint job.
I will start off by repeating that my Dogma with Di2 is about as close to perfection that you can get for a bicycle. The ride feels very stiff and much better than anything that I have ridden. The asymmetric design seems to take out a lot of the flex from the frame and the energy that you put into the pedals translates into forward motion. I enjoyed using the Pinarello MyWay system so that I received a unique bike, since there aren’t any of these rolling around for the time being. As for the aesthetics, it is the nicest looking bike out there and I am very happy with the diamond finish which is superb. I don’t have a final weight on the bike, although I’m not particularly concerned about that since I am a bigger rider.
My initial comment on the Di2 is that it is incredible. The rear derailleur slightly overshoots the cog on an upshift and once the chain is on, it moves back to align itself perfectly with the cog. There is no double shifting or hesitation, just flawless shifting each time. The front derailleur auto trims itself so you never have to do it. Overall, you don’t have to think about shifting, just push the button and its done.
This Saturday, I am riding in the Vancouver to Whistler Giro, which will be an exciting first race. Let’s stay in touch in the future, it was good to work with you.
