Our bikes can be used for indoor training on rollers or trainer but there are some aspects to consider:
• On a trainer the frame is subjected to higher loads than on a normal ride or on free rollers;
• Loads on frame depend deeply on the rider weight and also on the training intensity;
• During indoor training the bike is subjected to a quicker wear, due to the loads applied and to the aggressive effect of sweat on the frame and related mechanical components;
• Any cosmetic or material damage as a result of the clamping or attachment mechanism to the frame/bicycle is treated as ‘wear and tear’;
Considered the aspects above we suggest to use a “spare” bike for a continuing use on trainer or to have a maintenance service more frequent.
No, it isn't . The registration is valid only for the first owner of the bike who bought the bike from one of our official retailer.
The frame registration is not a property certificate, but a confirmation of our Pinarello Warranty that we granteed for the first owner of the bike. Infact if you register the bike within 30 days from purchase date, Pinarello conceed a 3 years additional warranty and the subscription to the Crash Replacement Program.
Admission to the “Crash Replacement” program allows the buyer to potentially benefit from the following advantages upon irreparable damage to the Product that does not qualify for replacement free of charge due to warranty coverage terms.
In such cases, the buyer will have the right to purchase from the same authorised seller from which he/she carried out the initial purchase a frame to replace the damaged one. The frame may be of the same category or of a lower one at a discounted price.
The amount of the discount will be made available from time to time on behalf of the authorised seller as part of it is offered by Pinarello while the rest is offered by the authorised seller at its discretion. In order to find out the amount of the discount, a buyer must inquire from an authorised seller.
The choice of an exact frame size is a very complex and delicate topic which is not always straightforward without seeing an athlete on his/her bike.

Our frames are designed in order to mount specific tyres as you can check in the bike's specification.
By the way, if you want to test different tyres with different width, you have to take care of:
1) the tyre has not to touch fork or frame in any part
2) the tyre has not to touch the forl or the frame in any part, with or without the rider on
We want to be clear that any damage on the the frame that can be linked to the bigger tyre's width, it's out of warranty and the test is on your own risk.
