Of course the 12s groupset is currently being tested in the pro peloton
Maybe I am looking in the wrong place, but there does not seem to be many/any images of team bikes before/after stages of the UAE tour, nor have I seen many close up side shots that could reveal next gen DA equipped bikes.

If you see "something" on a bike, I bet you will see it in the next races that come from the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad this Saturday

He also said Ineos uses rim brakes because Pinarello doesn’t have a disk brake version...

No.

Some pro are testing in individual rides.

Ok individual testing makes sense, otherwise there would have been more pics already like others have said

I Keep repeating it... Ineos and Pinarello analysed that rim brake were more performant. Plain and simple, quoting a Pinarello eng. “we are here to win the tdf, we let the marketing to others”. The weight story is typical from them to divert attention.

Closing the off topic... we can resume speculating on nothing.
