Joe is riding a bike which most likely rivals his own body's weight.

How tall is he and what size frame is he riding? Maybe it's the angle but looks like he's dwarfing that frame... more so than usual as far as pros go.

Loving the Neo-PRO getting skewered by the weenies on the style front :D Let's just hope he doesn't come flying up behind us on a climb one day and make us all look incredibly average.

You have to become a pro to earn the right not to look like a pro! :lol:

The fact of the matter is that we are incredibly average. :lol:

I have ridden with that kid, and he is legit. A nice guy all around as well. As far as what he weighs, I bet he and the bike are pretty close...He is a tiny in weight guy, but he is tall.

I hope he does well.

I personally like his setup, because it says to all - I am out here for business, not magazine print!

Joe is going to makes lots of riders cringe on steep ascents this year. To see this young american with less years than I do this will make me very pleased.

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.
