As I have been doing some research for this blogpost on Dan Martin’s bike size I have spent an unhealthy amount of time for my eyes and neck staring the Factor frame.
The Factor frames are top of the game in the league of lightweight carbon frames with the O2 VAM disc under 700gr. I will cover more about it on a dedicated blogpost.
For now let’s focus on the best Climber of Ireland, Dan Martin’s bike size.
After two years racing on a Colnago V2-r, Dan Martin have changed team and he is racing the 2020-21 on the super lightweight Factor O2 VAM road racing bike.
Dan Martin is racing 2020 UCI WorldTour season for the Team Israel Start-Up Nation. Factor bikes is the official bike supplier of the Team Israel Start-Up Nation.
The climbers of the team like Dan Martin and Nills Polit use the Factor O2 VAM. The fast and powerful sprinters like Ande Greipel and Rick Zabel use the Factor One. All the team riders use the same Time Trial model, the Factor SLiCK.
Dan is a lightweight climber, he weight is 59kg at peak fitness for 1m75 tall. I wonder where he get so much energy from while climbing so fast.
I like Dan’s riding style as he got his own characteristic profile that can be recognized among the peloton.
