Pinarello PRINCE FX RIM Carbon Road Bike with 105 : 747 : BoB - Metal Information

Season : 2020

Brand : Pinarello

Code : MY20PFXR105BoB

Late in 2019 Pinarello released the Prince FX. At the time, although a platform in it's own right - it was effectively a replacement for the F8 though technically better thanks to it's genesis from the F10.

The FX was superseded by the new integrated version the Prince FX TiCR. But, a few remain.
Given the global shortage of Shimano components and specifically Ultegra, much of the original Prince FX stock has been stripped to build MY21 Prince FX bikes, leaving a handful of denuded MY19/20 Prince FX framesets.

Pinarello UK have decided to build these up with much the same original spec as the Ultegra models that proved so successful but with a 105 groupset rather than Ultegra. Ultimately this means you can own a T900 Torayca Carbon (that's very very good, pro-tour carbon for those that don't know) Prince FX complete bike for less than the RRP (£3500) of the Frame alone. Yep - a high level Pinarello Carbon bike, effectively an F10 in more forgiving but still racy carbon for just £3000. Nuts.

There are literally singles available of sizes shown in the dropdown menu and they won't be around for long. What with the global shortage of bikes and the likely continuation of the stock issues into 2022, this is a cracking opportunity.

Below is our original write-up of the Ultegra spec version, which can be taken the same way. 105 is mechanically identical to Ultegra with a marginal weight penalty of c. 181g!

Available in Black-on-Black with Metal graphic while stock lasts.




Completely possible to predict 6 months ago when the Prince FX was launched in rim brake form, the Prince FX DISC arrives! The obvious addition to the Prince range, the Prince FX Disc complete bikes consolidate Pinarello's impressive 'Baby Dogma' line-up and deliver that celebrated Pinarello ride - complete with the confidence of disc brakes - at prices closer to that of a flagship frame.

The Prince is legendary.

The first Prince was for several years, the pinnacle of the Pinarello range. It was constructed from Sacndium and was an immediate favourite with Pina riders everywhere - from pro racers to enthusiasts. In 2008 it was re-launched in Carbon (I am keenly aware because I had always wanted a Dogma and had spent the previous year hoping that the mutterings from Italy about a carbon model would be the fabled beast) and was at once an immediate success; its novel, CFD based re-imagining of the ONDA fork and stays and slightly bolder colourways instantly finding favour with Pina fans, as well as those not so enamoured with the brand previously. If you care, I settled for a Paris (still one of my favourites and still going strong) in the short term, knowing one day the Dogma would be mine!

In 2010, the Dogma 60.1 was finally launched (and purchased by yours truly) and - as you would expect with the associated success under Team SKY - was refined rather than replaced. Now in its th modern guise - the F12 - the Dogma remains the flagship and the Prince was all but forgotten, save for a brief and somewhat overshadowed re-surfacing back in 2015.

So then, the Paris has faded into obscurity and the price of an F8 is such that if you have the funds for one, you'd likely save and buy an F10 which is still current at this moment in time despite the introduction of the F12. The Prince strides back into the frame, head high, shoulders back, with a cool calm assuredness that its place is solid, courtesy of plenty of development and a fresh new look - not to mention more realistic price points.

If we are honest with ourselves, while it is very nice to own the best frame, few riders save for the Pros and Elites will notice the difference between a Dogma and a Prince - especially if it is the first 'dream' bike build since the reference point is different. Arguably - if you have the budget for both, the Prince FX Disc with a Dogma-budget-balance spent on excellent wheels, will give you a better ride than a Dogma Disc with lesser hoops.

Pitched as an all-round road bike, the Prince FX Disc (and all Prince) take much of their design lead from the Dogma F10. Geometries are so close that from a handling perspective there is unlikely anything between them - as an example the Stack and Reach measurements on size 54 frames are within a couple of mm. Both frames have flat back profiling for aerodynamic advantage, the dual position and recessed water bottle mounts on the downtube which curves over the front wheel, the fork flap at the drop-out for improved airflow over the quick release lever and the Di2 junction box integration too. The 'nose' of the frame - the headtube - protrudes over the claiper to enhance airflow and it is a similar story at the rear. The most significant change is in the construction of the frames : The Prince FX Disc uses a Torayca T900 carbon and the standard Prince / Prince Disc models a T700, as opposed to the Dogma's T1100. In real terms this reduces cost and makes the frames slightly less 'harsh' for the same shape and - more importantly, it improves impact resistance. For those of us who don't have a car behind us with a spare bike on it when the worst happens, this is a good thing. While T1100 is light and stiff, it is also more brittle.

Pinarello introduced a strong line of Prince models at their launch early in the 2019 season and the addition of this new Prince FX DISC simply adds confidence with the range as it looks like they are properly comitted to the platform - unlike 2015. The Prince FX DISC tops the line-up and comes as complete models built with either Ultegra or Ultegra Di2, both using Fulcrum's Racing 500 wheelsets. I would expect to see a frameset appear at some stage. The Prince FX Rim remains available as a frameset or as a complete bike built with Ultegra and Fulcrum Racing 500 wheels.

From a ride perspective, the Prince FX Disc is as close as most need to get to a Dogma and - if my 11 year old Paris is anything to go by (it still puts a smile on my face) - will serve for years to come. As I mentioned before, the handling is basically the same and while the carbon is 'only' T900, it is worth mentioning that many bikes in the Pro Peloton are using T900 Toray carbon - so you won't really be compromising that much performance!

If you desire the Pinarello brand but have hitherto struggled to justify it or if you prefer more comfort offered by the slightly less stiff T700 fibre, then the standard Prince comes in 2 forms : rim or disc brake - but only as complete bikes. There are 2 options here as well, Ultegra or Ultegra Di2 finished with Pinarello's own bar and stem and with Fulcrum Racing 500 wheels. The good news is that these bikes are sensibly priced given the nature of the frame and they make access to the legendary Pinarello handling (and it is incredible) much more attainable. As a rule we don't recommend people buy Italian / French etc premium brand bikes at the mid to low end (when buying with your head that is- the heart is a whole other issue!) since value for money is often lost; but the Prince, like the Bianchi Infinito, is most definitely a shift of the goal-posts and will not dissappoint regardless of which model you choose.

  • I am 6ft 1.5 inchesInside leg 33 inches. Whats size bike would be a good fit?Thanks
    Question asked by Garry Thomas on Mar 4 2021 5:20PM
    Hi Garry,

    Based purely on those measures (and therefore ignoring other factors like age, flexibility, fitness, intended riding, history of cycling etc) we would suggest a 56cm

    Thanks
    Dave
  • What length of stem is fitted?Is it possible to use tube less tyres on the clincher spec. wheels?
    Question asked by Mike on Dec 23 2020 8:53PM
    Hi Mike,

    The stem length depends on bike size. The wheels supplied are not tubeless I'm afraid.

    I hope that helps
  • Ref 105 groupset: what is the specification for inner & outer ring gears and rear cassette? Also what is the length of crank arms?
    Question asked by Mike on Dec 23 2020 8:49PM
    Hi Mike,

    The chainset is compact : 50-34t. Cassette is genreally 11-32 but this can occasionally vary from Pinarello based on availability.
    Crank length will vary depending on frame size.

    Thanks
