A 74.2 saddle height and a 5cm setback can be accomplished, I have done it myself at home. Both of those bikes have 74 degree seat tube angles. Like I said, given the reach number, I can see it being 5. I have my saddle right now on a Cdale 52 at 74.8. The saddle slammed back only gives me 7.0, and the reach with a 130mm stem is 57 to 57.5. So if you just take that and move my saddle forward 2 cm, you can see that the reach number given of 55.2 can be achieved.

Venge offset is 25mm standard- I used to sell them. Even on the Foil his saddle is decently shoved back on that post albeit it looks like he went 1 size up from the Venge.

Alex Diniz, who won the mountain top finish at San Luis, is riding a Caloi, that is a painted Giant tcr, you can even spot "Rabobank"

as you can remember Caloi rebadged the Merckx steel frames for Motorola and Lotto (they even won at Roubaix with Tchmil)

Where would I get something like that? I can picture it being a thermos for those long cold rides.

for some reason when I see local riders blow it up at these tours I just think rampant doping.
