Martyn Ashton takes the £10k carbon road bike used by Team Sky's Bradley Wiggins & Mark Cavendish for a ride with a difference. With a plan to push the limits of road biking as far as his lycra legs would dare, Martyn looked to get his ultimate ride out of the awesome Pinarello Dogma 2. This bike won the 2012 Tour de France - surely it deserves a Road Bike Party! Shot in various locations around the UK and featuring music from 'Sound of Guns'. Road Bike Party captures some of the toughest stunts ever pulled on a carbon road bike. A Film by Robin Kitchin Produced by Ashton Bikes Music: Sound of Guns 'Sometimes' http://www.facebook.com/soundofguns With special thanks to the Ken Fox Wall of Death.

I have been riding Specialized bikes for the past 3 years and there is undoubtedly no going back. I have never found a product that delivers on this level every time. Looks fast feels great. Congratulations to specialized...you did it again.
Yes, I recommend this product.
