    I saw this too - awesome stuff. Wonder how many wheels he had to replace?!

    The video put me in mind of Way Back Home with Danny MacAskill - another brilliant display of biking skill.

    You certainly need a comfortable saddle doing some of those tricks, unless you want to sing in the boys choir!!!!!

    Super amazing, and that front wheel brake control is superb - must be an amazing set of blocks and skill.

    Quite a good compromise if you're into that sort of thing. The bike is certainly adapted for stunts with very low gearing, fat tyres and straight forks. Nice vid, thanks for sharing.

    Looks like the bike is a Pinarello Dogma which costs circa 4000. I remember back in my teens holding the record on our housing estate for the longest wheelie, that was on a old Raleigh racing bike Smile How things change....

    I thought the bike was the same sort that Wiggo won the TDF on. Perhaps that was just hype for the video.

    Yes, it was one of the Pinarello Dogmas that Sky used for the tour. I bet they got through a few pairs of carbon wheels though, they are not designed for that much bouncing. Bloody good video though. The tyres aren't much bigger than road tyres, if at all, as you wouldn't get much bigger on the rims, well according to the discussions by hubby and a friend Smile
