Saw this on Cyclingnews
http://www.cyclingnews.com/features/pro ... reacto-evo

Normal 54 Geo (56 top tube) for this frame is a 159mm head tube, stack/reach 559/400, seems weird they'd say it's custom? Maybe the top tube is a bit shorter so he can run a 130mm stem? A 'sportive' version for the world champ? :mrgreen:

I also wondered whether this was a custom frame when I saw that piece.

I don't actually think that there are many frames out there that have been custom made for pros. The obvious ones are the very small guys that are on custom very small frames that aren't included in the range.

Given that his position is actually very close to mine, and that he's running a -17 degree/130mm stem, by my calculation, it must have a shorter top tube than stock....but yeah, a specific mold for Rui would be Costa-ly
