Pinarello has redesigned its road bike FP1 as an FP Uno Tiagra for 2012, a road racing bike that uses hydroformed asymmetric tubing. As a complete bike, the FP Uno comes with Shimano Tiagra as well as an asymmetric alloy frame and fork.

While the FP1 geometry is maintained, the FP Uno gets an asymmetric design, which offsets the drivetrain to the right allowing for a perfect balance of the offset power delivery. This asymmetry is most evident in the seatstays and fork and during tough climbing or sprinting.

Available in nine sizes, the 2012 Pinarello FP Uno Tiagra Road Racing Bike guarantees a perfect fit. Also, there are four color options to choose from. Swift rides on winding roads are easily tackled by the FP Uno with precise handling, thanks to its stiffer front end.
