Luke Rowe's Tour de France Pinarello Dogma K8-S

Cobbles bike for stage four of the Tour de France

With all British fans' eyes on Bradley Wiggins at Paris-Roubaix this year, it was his Team Sky teammate Luke Rowe who rode to the better finish, coming eighth in the Roubaix velodrome at the Hell of the North.

On Tuesday, the Tour de France will tackle a number of pavé sectors on stage four, and Rowe and many others will be racing the same bikes and the same style of wide tubulars they used back in April.

The 25-year-old will be riding the Pinarello Dogma K8-S elastomer-suspended frameset that the Italian company launched this year at the spring classics. The DSS1.0 elastomer suspension system gives the rear wheel 10mm of vertical travel.

Just as important are the plump FMB tubulars handmade just for the event.

Digital details are rounded out by a Stages power meter, Shimano Di2 shifting — including sprint shifters — and a Garmin Edge GPS computer.

Check out all his mechanical details below, and click through the gallery for a closer look at the bike Rowe will use in support of team leader Chris Froome for the cobbles of stage four of the Tour de France.
