6 feet 2, rides a 60

I doubt Joe gives two shits about the internets and what they think of his bike. He started road racing for fun 3 years ago and now he is on the best team of the world, living in Europe, and he gets to race the Giro.

I've ridden with him and he looks completely normal on that bike relatively speaking since he's ridiculously slender and very tall.


Are you sure? Wiggins is that height and rides a 56, it looks like a 58 to me, the 60 is massive.

I mean, come on, the kid was riding a Trek last year and still managed to go fast. He's upgraded in the MAMIL world to a Pina now!

No way does Wiggins ride a 56! I'm sure I've read heaps of places he's on a 60.

"A saddle height of 82cm and a reach from saddle tip to bars of 63cm is accommodated with a 60cm Pinarello frame and 140mm stem."

DartanianX, the article is claiming the bike featured is a 60 (59.5 according to Pinarello geometry). There is no way the bike featured has a 21.5 headtube. Rough scaling gives 16.7. Nearest size is a 56, 57.5 C-T, 16.5 HT.

KWalker, you do realize this is the internet and none of us are actually dead serious about picking apart his bike right? :roll: If he sees this he will probably get a good laugh at it. I met him too and he's a down to earth guy like that. You take all this way too seriously...

According to Joe's Sky profile he is 1 meter and 85cm tall which translates to 6.07feet so just under 6 feet 1.

I've never been a big Schleck fan... this article reinforces it. Whatever physical talent he may possess seems to be overwhelmed by his psychological frailty. And without big brother shpeherding him along, he seems completely incapable of accomplishing anything. Maybe their dad was right and they should both walk away from cycling...

Wiggins is also on a 60

I am sure because I was there at the tail end of his bike fit and asked him what size that is. I forget where I saw Wiggins' frame size, but it was in one of those pro bike features.

The Pinarello size 60 (59.5 according to the chart) isn't that massive with a 58 top tube and 180 headtube- that's actually pretty standard.

Of course.

I'm comparing his height to mine and I guess I'm 6 2 on the dot and we see eye-to-eye. Either way if you look at him from the wrong direction and the right background he could easily blend in with a stop sign pole. Perfect genes for going up a mountain really, really fast.

it look like Rabo-Blanco still were unsure of their helmet sponsor during the team presentation last year in the Canary Islands

KWalker, I think you're getting the Pinarello sizing mixed up. The 60 is 59.5 C-C ST, 61 C-T, 21.5 HT.

As I've mentioned by rough scaling the Velonews Dogma is close to a 56 which doesn't seem unreasonable judging by the amount of seatpost and drop to the handlebars.

My bad, its the bike that has a 59.5 top tube. As I said I saw the tail end of his bike fit and that is what he stated and Retul had measured. I don't know what scaling you're talking about, but Wiggins is on the same size frame and judging from pictures they look identical. Anyways, take what you will from that.

Quite possible it's a 56 or so. It's also not unusual for pros to run a smaller frame size with a longer stem and more drop in order to achieve the more aero position. Their conditioning also makes them quite flexible so being that stretched out is comfortable for them.
