Angliru 105 Complete Road Bike - 2018 by Pinarello
Pinarello bikes are certainly an aspirational brand that many cyclists dream of owning. But, we all don' have the pocketbooks to support a top-tier Dogma build so thankfully Pinarello offers a great bike with excellent value in the heavily contested $2-2. 5k category with its 2018 Angliru 105 Complete Road Bike. This bike happens to be fully-equipped to race if you choose so, and with the money saved, it can add up to a bunch of race entries, a second wheelset, or a wardrobe full of clothing. Pinarello constructs the Angliru's frame and fork from T600 carbon fiber which provides a rigid backbone for sprinting and a quick-response in the handling department. While not quite as rigid and lightweight as some of its higher-moduli carbon used on the Dogmas, it's better at damping road vibrations and it could be argued that it is more durable because it's less fragile. Up front, the curved carbon Onda fork helps smooth road chatter on all-day rides, while the rear has distinctive bowed seatstays helping quell road vibrations there. Speaking of stays, the chainstays receive the same asymmetric design we are accustomed to seeing on its premium frames. The Think 2 concept used on its top-level frames continues with the head tube's shaping that emphases both stiffness and aerodynamics and houses the tapered headset and fork's steerer tube. An oversized down tube increases torsional torque for a solid pedaling response and the water bottle area is flattened to shield the cage and bottles from the wind. A bowed top tube further aids in comfort by allowing for more vertical compliance. Another touch of give comes by way of a round, rather than aero, seat tube and seatpost in 31. 6mm diameter. Two other frame features of note: it has routing for an electronic drivetrain if you choose to do so in the future and its threaded Italian bottom bracket is superior from an installation and maintenance standpoint than a PressFit version and it is way less likely to creak.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
