OK, so this is where I get confused (serious question - civil answers only please). I thought the anti-Pinarello/Colnago/etc brigade here argue "why spend $5k on a frame when you can get the same frame OEM for $500" / "they all come from the same mold in China"? If that is so, why does this obviously fake Dogma have a round seat-tube? Surely our Chinese OEM friends would use the same Pina mold with the shaped round tube?
Maybe there are both hopeless fakes like this as well as genuine OEM Pinarellos to be had for $500? Anyone got a link to the latter?
