The bike is offered, naturally, in only one size: 56.5cm. It is equipped with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 electronic drivetrain and Mavix CXR wheels shod with Mavic CXR-01 tyres.

The long 177.5mm cranks have a Stages power meter installed. Set-up of the Pinarello aero bars is to Wiggins’s specification.

Bartape appears to be minimal – just some lengths of grip tape to stop the hands from slipping. Chainrings are 58/44 matched to a tight ration 11-23 cassette.


Watch: Mikel Landa’s Pinarello Bolide


A Bolide model was first used by Wiggins during the 2013 Giro d’Italia. His main Bolide had gold rather than blue frame highlights, to mark his 2012 Olympic time trial gold medal. That leads us to believe that the model for sale is a back-up bike. Pinarello has just introduced a new Bolide model.

Given its provenance and near-perfect condition, the £9,999 asking price doesn’t seem wholly unreasonable as the Bolide frameset alone retailed for £9,300.
