Although it's been nearly 13 years since Oscar Pereiro was credited with winning the Tour, we remember it like it was yesterday when the bike he piloted, the Prince, was Pinarello's range-topping machine. Now superseded by its Dogma F12, the Prince is still heir to the throne and shares the same construction techniques, racing geometry, and frame details, with a slightly heavier carbon lay-up, significantly bringing down the barrier of entry, but no less part of a royal family. We certainly value how the Prince takes the dream of Pinarello ownership and makes it a reality for more cyclists. The Prince Disk Ultegra Complete Road Bike takes a great bike and makes it even better with the inclusion of Shimano's excellent Ultegra drivetrain and powerful disc brakes.Pinarello offers the Prince in a multitude of options, and the standard model (featured here) is built from T700 carbon compared to the Prince FX's T900. Both materials are slightly heavier than the Dogma's T1100 carbon, but they arguably have a more comfortable ride quality and are undoubtedly lighter and stiffer than the carbon used in bikes that were winning the Tour a few years back and certainly more so than when the Prince was made of Scandium. T700 might be the heaviest carbon material used in Pinarello's racing stable, but the difference between the Prince and the Prince FX is only around two dozen or so grams.As we alluded to above, the Prince is technically a step below the Dogma in terms of Pinarello's pecking order, yet the Prince certainly doesn't pull any punches when it comes to design, even sharing some features. It's got the Dogma's asymmetrical construction, those tell-tell aerodynamic touches at the dropouts and the head tube, and although this model sports mechanical Ultegra, Di2-friendly Think2 E-Link port on the downtube is there for future upgrades. The flatback tube shaping carries over from Dogma to Prince, too, so the latter frameset enjoys the same aerodynamic advantages of a ro...

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.
