Introducing from Wrench Science: Pinarello Dogma 2 EPS Limited Edition

We received this gorgeous 2012 Pinarello Dogma 2 EPS LE yesterday, and boy were we pumped! This is ONE of the first Campagnolo EPS systems to arrive in the US. Check it out!

The bike will soon be setup with specific parts and fitted to his specific needs. We just wanted to show the beautiful gorgeous Italian components. More pics to follow after the break!

First Impression: Looks like a Super Record group with wires and a battery box, but it performs even better than what we were expecting. The rear derailleur has super fast shifting going up or down the cogs, with perfect shifting each time. The front derailleur is much easier to deal with too. Now you don't have to worry about having to push the shifters one more time so that the indexing is correct. It's all automatic now, allowing you to focus on one thing, your ride. The ergonomics are just as good as the mechanical counter part, but with much more ease of reaching those thumb shifters when in the drops. There really is nothing bad that can be said about the new Campagnolo EPS system. Definitely comparable to Shimano's Di2 system (both Dura Ace and their new Ultegra Di2) if not better with faster rear shifting. Looks like Campy's hard work has really paid off!
