Video: Putting A $16,000 Bike Through Its Paces

The Pinarello Dogma 2 road bike frame is the one that Bradley Wiggins rode to victory at the 2012 Tour de France earlier this year. It costs in excess of £10,000 (roughly $16,000) and is a rolling testament to how far cycling technology has come. The frame is made out of carbon fiber and weighs a mere 920 grams (2 pounds), which gives you a sense of just how light the Tour bikes actually are.

In the video below, rider Martyn Ashton take the Pinarello Dogma 2 out for a spin, putting it to the test in places and situations it was never meant to be used in. The results are a pretty entertaining video that shows off his own unique brand of cycling skills that don't resemble Wiggins much at all.
