    What makes you suspect it might be a fake? Price? lack of papers? Seller conduct?

    Your other enormous risk is whether the bike is stolen.

    If the price is hard to believe, stolen is about 10,000x more likely than counterfeit. Nov 1, 2022 at 17:11

    If this is a fake, I would say someone has gone to a lot of effort because off the images it seems pretty convincing. About the only thing looks a little off to me vs pics of current models is where the seat stays joining the seat post relative to the top tube, that could be a model/year/size thing though. Sure you've already found this pinarello.com/global/en/false-frames

    Looks suspicious to me. No one who legitimately owns a Pinarello like that would stage it with the front wheel in the stand like that!! ;-) Nov 3, 2022 at 16:26

    Hi, welcome to bicycles. Please note that you should post your answer in English. That said, you assert it's a fake but don't give any understanding as to why. What are the giveaways that it's a fake? As it is a short answer like this, even if it's correct, doesn't really help.
