Beautiful Bicycle - A Bright and Bold Pinarello Grevil

Written by Alvin Holbrook, on May 26, 2022

Custom paint is exactly what you want it to be. Sometimes you want to commemorate your dogs, or you want to match your car. Other times you want the paint scheme of one bike on a completely different frame. That’s what we did here, taking a limited-edition paint scheme from the Pinarello Dogma F8 and applying it to the new custom-painted Pinarello Grevil.

This scheme was one of two colorways offered as limited edition runs of the Dogma F8. This design in particular is called 968 Sky Orange. Being that it was a limited run this color was hard to find for the Dogma F8 but impossible to find with the Grevil, as the Grevil was never offered in this scheme. That’s where custom paint comes to fill in the gaps, though with a few caveats. This version we have here isn’t an exact match to the 968 Sky Orange scheme, but rather an inspiration. Part of that is a difference in frames; in comparison to the Grevil, the Dogma F8 is smooth and simplistic in its tube and surface shapes. Every tube shape on the Grevil curves and elevates like it's the Stelvio Pass of gravel bikes. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it requires a few changes to make the scheme work with what makes the Grevil special.

The result of this paint scheme is in the eye of the beholder. Some here in the shop love it, others prefer something a bit more subdued. Regardless of how one might feel about it, the bike’s owner is all about it. That is the value of custom paint; you get something uniquely yours, and unlike anything else available in the market at the moment. We’re good with that.

As an aside, we need to talk about how this custom paint colorway happened. Most of our default custom paint bike options come to us unpainted and ready for our painter to prepare. This Grevil was a bit different, requiring us to strip the paint before continuing forward. We don't usually start with pre-painted frames, particularly when our painter is at their busiest.
