I give up. I asked Joe what his frame size was and it was on the Retul screen and know its the one with the 59.5 top tube. Wiggins rides the same size albeit with a more aggressive position. If his seat height is correctly listed as is his reach, my stack and reach template would put him on the size that Velonews states unless I'm entering something wrong. Both of them have very tall seat heights, which makes the frames look smaller than they really are. Also, the Pinarello headtube looks shorter than it is because of the weird integrated aero fork crown.

Great overall win for Moreno in the tour of langkawi!

EDIT: I stand corrected... race not over yet! :oops:

I had actually never heard of him.

Nothing stands out in his palmares except for a win in the tour of japan. Lets not jump to conclusions here! Guess training at altitude has once again proved favourable for these colombian riders :beerchug: :mrgreen:

Now one for the WW "pro postition critique" police. Doesnt his saddle seem rather low? Look how much knee bend he has in the following picture.

No way that frame is a 56. Headtube is way to big. Don't know if this is the right chart, but it has to be close to. http://www.ciclipinarello.com/geometrie ... ogma65.jpg" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
I would say that it was atleast 17,9 cm. Thats a size 59.
It's true that Pro's are riding smaller frames. But maybe he is riding a bigger frame for training. I don't think that this bike will ever be raced.

His leg is not quite at 6-o-clock, maybe fully extended it is a proper fit...

Yes I agree great future for Dombrowski.

Speaking of Paris-Nice, it appears Levi didn't land a gig to ride in it, even though his suspension will have conveniently ended just in time to allow it.
