How not to ride a $20k Pinarello Dogma 2 limited edition down GMR

Guys,

Just wanted to share this video with you....first off, always wear a helmet. This is a video of one of my buds riding his Pinarello Dogma 2 limited edition with Campy EPS on lightweights.....he went a little too hot on the corner then.........you gotta watch the last 20 seconds.

Looks like he locked up his rear wheel. Seems you were teaching him how to descend. Did you bother teaching him how to brake?

<edit below>
Wow, just watched the video a 2nd time. Yep, sounds like he popped the back tire which caused him to go down. It looked like he locked the wheel and started skidding. But yeah, that's definitely a blowout.

Well, that flat out sucks.... thanks for sharing.

Aside from his wheel, any other irreparable damage?

After any significant skid, always stop and inspect the tire. It doesn't take much to wear through to the cords. I also discovered this fact the hard way, though not as hard as this poor guy.

I'm confused. Orlando is your bud? But you're posting vids of him crashing on the internet with the humiliating title How not to ride a $20K Pinarello Dogma 2 limited edition down GMR?

With friends like this, who needs enemas?

Besides $8,500, what's the difference between a regular $11,500 Dogma 2 and a limited edition $20,000 Dogma 2?

We all need someone who'll be there to point and laugh.

The first skid sounded strange, not like a tire skidding. We hear the tire pop and the rim hitting asphalt. What is the damage report, human & machine?

Orlando is a nice guy. he wants this to be a learning tool for us

What the heck was the cameraman doing, giving that rider "descending tips"? Sheesh, if you need practice descending, wouldn't it be better to do so on a cheaper bike? BTW, some of those corners looked really shaky, see :27, for instance. The rider probably held a death grip on the bars, and using too much muscle to control the turn, rather than relaxing a little.

the "cameraman" is a pretty damn good cyclist (check his other video descending GMR), i think he is qualified to give descending tips

+1000....any type of foul play or even a sign, STOP for inspection. A slight skid on GMR can wipe off inches of rubber from a tire.

Hope the guy was alright.

Well, next time I ride the disk brakes going down a steep hill, I will feel like a regular fount of wisdom instead of a doofus.

He should talk to the kids in my neighborhood. They can skid like 10 feet and not blow a tire.

There are only 4 or 5 turns you need to brake on GMR, the one he was on definitely isn't one of them.

I'm a newbie back into this, and on a new bike. I'm going to brake on a LOT of them, thank you very much!

Whoa, went to Competitive Cyclist, chose the most expensive options and got up to $18,500 before tax and shipping. My wife never says anything when I buy bike stuff but that would probably change if I brought home a bike that cost more than my car.
