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 model5. 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.
