Chris Froome's Pinarello Dogma F8 Training Bike


We’ve seen what Chris Froome uses on the road, and over cobbles, but what does he use when he’s back home training around the hills behind Monaco and Nice? We take a closer look at his Pinarello Dogma F8.

We’ve been fortunate enough at GCN to take a close look at 100’s of pro bikes, but rarely their training ones. Whilst we were down with Chris Froome, he let us look at his Pinarello Dogma F8. It was great to see it adorned with ‘controversial’ things such as a saddle bag and pump, contravening certain rules that we don’t agree with.

  1. This could be any Joe Blow's bike on the street! Awesome.

    PS I run saddle bag and hand pump! If you ride solo you never know when you're going to need backups!

  2. Ian Boswell's training bike has a full size pump on it, definitely breaks some rules but beats the crap out of having to get 7.5 bar out of a mini-pump 🙂

  3. THE RULES are cool and all but really; how cool are you going to look WALKING your 5,000.00 (dollar for you fellas overseas) bike down the road because someone put forth the notion that "being PREPARED' is lame? IF you are in a professional race and you have an entire car jam packed full of bikes with 15 guys bouncing around the back seat like they have to take a piss, wheel clenched in one hand and a tool box in the other that'll have your entire wheel swapped out before you can even wipe the sweat off of your glasses, then sure; a saddle bag and tube mounted pump will make you look like a douche. If your like the rest of us who only have people behind us in cars wishing we would just get the hell off the road then you bet your ass I'm keeping myself equipped. And I don't care how "pro" you are, walking your bike down the road in spd-sl cleats sucks butt.

  4. Here's a thought… if you were to buy a new car, would you want to listen to the posh car dealer do his coercing song and dance about how it performs or the dude what's been driving the identical car you're interested in for the past 4 years??? More training bike reviews please!!!

  5. What a splendid idea to review a Pro's training bike! Thank you. In the wide world of cycling, there are only a miniscule amount of cyclists that would ride a pro level racing bike. But how many millions of us cyclists have just 1 bike for everything? Inspiring to know to one can still love cycling even if one doesn't have the poshest pro level bike!

  6. So when there's no team mechanic around the pros let their bikes, chain, and cassette actually get dirty. Maybe Dan should have showed him. How to clean a bike in 30 seconds with WD40

  7. I'm sure most of your subscriber base are recreational riders who don't ride on 10 k carbon bikes but recreational road bikes so can you please GCN make a review on some CUBE bikes, they really made a progress in the last couple of years in terms of quality and sales, also they offer best equipment on entry level bikes for lower price that it's competitors, cheers
