Interesting stuff for the British team bike. An aero design. McLaren collaboration?
One for the tech nerds, Bradley Wiggins is training on a new bike ahead of the Olympics.
All bikes in the Olympics are subject to rules to keep manufacturers’ names and logos to a minimum but this bike has no labels at all. He normally rides a Pinarello but this is custom bike made for the British team.
Note the head tube that extends beyond the top tube
See the large stem and its strange shape
the frame has profiled tubing
the Zipp rims
If it’s visibly different, the position will be identical so Wiggins does not suffer any bio-mechanical differences after three weeks spent on the bike.
