The Mecurio is definitely an extraordinary Hybrid bicycle! The Mercury Carbon is a new concept in cycling. Fast and agile with disc brakes: perfect for the city, but it can also become a road bike thanks to its lightness and versatility!
Based on the aluminum Trionfo, the Mercurio features a full carbon, asymmetrical frame that's based on the original Dogma design. Pinarello describes this design as an "asymmetry that creates more symmetry," and its effect on the ride can range from “unnoticeable” to requiring a “slight adjustment” depending on rider sensitivity.
The Mercurio is intended to satisfy a range of cyclists looking for something that has the sleekness and performance of a traditional road bike, while also exhibiting the comfort of a "super-hydrid" or "city" bike. Like the Trionfo, the Mercurio comes equipped with Shimano Sora components, but with Shimano mechanical disc brakes and traditional drop bars.
The carbon Mercurio is available in the 943 (Black/White/Red gloss) color in four sizes for $1,995. The flat bar, aluminum Trionfo is available in the same geometry in the 938 (Black/Yellow matte color) for $1,400.

If you spent any time watching Chris Froome and Team Sky winning the Tour d' France or the Vuelta d' Espana this year, then you are familiar with the Pinarello Dogma F10. With the exception of the harshest cobbled Classics, where the Pinarello K8 is the extraordinarily compliant bike of choice, Pinarello and Team Sky have rejected the current trend of using specialty bikes to suit each stage profile, they have opted for an all-in-one approach. This frame was designed to provide you and Chris Froome a general level of high performance, comfort and durability. The Pinarello Dogma F10 is a darn good bike!
And the numbers support this. The Dogma F10 is 6.3 percent lighter and seven percent stiffer than it's award winning predecessor the F8. The Dogma F10 features a concave downtube design, reducing drag by 12.6 percent and a new fork which contributes another ten percent reduction in drag.
Made from Torayca T1100 1K carbon fibre, the highest tensile strength in the cycling world, all the frame shapes have been updated, improved and strengthened as has the new Onda F10 fork which borrows the dropout fin design from the Bolide time trial bike.
Pinarello has optimized the entire frame for aero efficiency, going so far as to design a bespoke carbon bar-stem, seatpost and Twin Force integrated seat collar for the Dogma F10. Even the design of the saddle was kept in-house.
Despite these changes Pinarello refers to the Dogma F10 as an evolution rather than a revolution. The Dogma F8's geometry remains unchanged as, for the most part, has the rear triangle which was already particularly nice in the Dogma F. The seatstay junction is made using a single merged piece of carbon fibre, which only splits close to the rear wheel and allows for clearance of up to 28c tires. The Pinarello Dogma F10 is designed with internal cable routings for either mechanical or
