Top Gear St Petersburg Dogma

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Where are you watching it? (TV/ Online)? The last one I watched was the South American road trip/ Falkland Islands one.

Haha, I don't have a TV so I'll have to wait a while and see it online. I am guessing Hammond would ride a 48 cm Pinarello?

They did not mention frame size but a 48cm would be a good guess, James was stunned by how light it was.

He said it only weighed 850 grams. That could only be true for the frame only. 6,000+ grams is more like it for the built up bike.

Correct. That is the frame only. My Dogma is 6.5kg with pedals, bottle cages, and computer.

It was a nice bike, and could probably be fixed with a new hanger, and then the owner can live in doubt whether there is any other hidden damage. I can't help but think, or know, that if the frame were steel or Ti, with a fixed hangar, that he could have easily won the race. If they can fix hatchbacks to be campers and all they do on the show, surely they can bend back a derailleur hangar, but, oh no... it snapped !

TBH it was only supposed to be an hour or so ride. I can't really blame the crew for not packing a spare hanger.

Richard Hammond is TV-small, not real-life small. That is, he's smaller than his co-presenters, but not actually unusually short.

His wiki page claims him to be 5' 7". That is only a few inches above being a dwarf. And we know the internet lies.

Yes, it's a joke. Just going with the hamster theme.
