The 2012 Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins’ motorbike is currently on sale and can be yours for £ 7,500.00 plus postage.
The bike is a personalized Pinarello Dogma 65.1 edition, with the Team Sky branding and a sticker with the name “Wiggins” on the top tube. It was provided to the Briton for the last stage of the Tour de France 2012, where he won the very first yellow jersey of the Tour de France.It is advertised on Facebook by UK coaching firm trainSharp, a brand closely linked to Team Sky through former team sporting director Sean Yates, who joined the company as a coach in 2014. He is not confirmed whether the company owns the bike, or even whether the bike is being sold on behalf of Wiggins himself.
Along with its special edition yellow paintwork, the bike also gets a matching yellow Fizik saddle and handlebars, along with yellow Speedplay pedals and even yellow decals on its Shimano Dura-Ace C35 wheels.
A ‘proto’ type sticker also adorns the wheels, suggesting that the Briton was using new technology for his day on the Champs-Élysées – although it could have simply been a reference to the non-standard yellow colourway.
The bike is fitted with the top-of-the-line Shimano groupset of the time, the Dura-Ace Di2 10-speed groupset – the first iteration of Di2, with an external battery that can be seen hidden behind the chainrings.
The platters themselves are clearly not a standard Dura-Ace component. These are the oval rings from Osymetric, a more famous product used by fellow Wiggins Chris Froome for his next four Tour de France titles.
These are bolted to the spider from power meter specialists, SRM, who are now providing UAE Team Emirates with an updated version of the spider-based power meter you see here. The setup is completed with components from Shimano’s component subsidiary, Pro, as well as tubular tires from Veloflex.
