Born from the mountains of Northern Italy in Treviso, Pinarello has been manufacturing the finest racing bicycles in the world since the company's inception in 1953. Family owned and operated, first by Giovanni, and now under his son, Fausto, the Pinarello brand continues this world class pedigree today. Pinarello boasts the most Tour de France wins of any manufacturer and sponsors the World Tour leading Team Sky. Exclusive development partnerships with Jaguar and Torayca Carbon have resulted in the Dogma F8, the eighth iteration of the Dogma moniker for Pinarello.
The Dogma F8 has shattered preconceived notions of what an "Aero" road bike can achieve. Sublime ride quality, low weight, unsurpassed stiffness and the razor sharp handling qualities that are demanded by the world's most discerning riders are all combined in this exclusive Italian-made package. Offered in thirteen sizes and a multitude of paint options, the Dogma F8 guarantees the perfect fit and aesthetic to match your riding style.
For 2016 the entire Pinarello line features a model to match any price point and riding style. From the GAN aero bike, which takes many design cues from the F8, to the venerable ROKH for the longer more endurance-oriented rides, and even the Dogma XC, the purebred mountain bike cross-country race machine.

Niner was founded by Chris Sugai and Steve Domabidy, who met on a Wednesday night ride. Based in North Hollywood, CA, Niner sells exclusively 29” mountain bikes. Why 29”? As Niner says, rather than riding IN the terrain, you’ll be riding ABOVE it, gaining more control and stability on even the roughest trails. (ninerbikes.com)
