Yellow bikes for the yellow jersey are nothing new, but in July this year, Sky did something a little bit different. When Bradley Wiggins first took the lead in the Tour de France, he got a black bike with yellow accents.



After Wiggins consolidated his position, the yellow erupted on to the down tube. Only when it came to champagne-sipping time on the final day did they roll out the full yellow livery.



To commemorate the Briton’s win, Pinarello has released replicas of the bikes in the all-new 2013 Dogma 65.1 frame and dressed them with Team Sky’s sponsors’ components for the full team look.



In this picture, the bike in the centre, with the yellow down tube, is the only one that’s a regularly stocked colour option (Pinarello uses the internal code 770) but the other two (853 and 769) are available to order.

    “The Di2 battery pack hidden away at the bottom of the frame”

    Not really “hidden”, more like stuck on as an after-thought,
    because they can’t put it somewhere neater.

    And for that money I would expect a second bottle-cage on my bike.

    In the past Pinarello have produced some much more artist paint designs,
    that are much more “WOW !”, shame that they didn’t really produce something amazing, also a small Union-Flag somewhere (and maybe even an Australian one too) to mark Wiggins’ nationality.
