What is Peter Sagan’s Bike Size 2022?
Peter Sagan is 1m82 and weights 78kg. He is growing more powerful as years pass. He was 74kg last time I reviewed his bike in 2020.
Peter Sagan races on a size 56cm Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL7 2022. Specialized recommends Size 56cm to riders of 1m75 to 1m80 on its website.
The saddle height is set at 755mm from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the Specialized Romin Evo saddle. The seat post is a 20mm setback model and the saddle is set back to the max.
The distance from the front of the saddle to the handlebar axle is 628mm. The stem is a 140mm long. The height difference between the top of the saddle and the top of the handlebar is 95mm.
How does Retul optimize Peter’s fitting?
As for most of the pro riders racing on Specialized bikes Retül do the fitting. A trend is emerging with a shorter difference of handlebar drop compared to saddle height. While extending the distance between the saddle and the handlebar.
This has the benefit of keeping the rider in an aero position without needing to bend too much. Reducing stress on the back while keeping aero position efficiently.
The other particularity of Peter Sagan’s fitting is the wide Q-Factor Shimano Dura Ace pedals (SP-R9100-L) which features 4mm longer axles.
Peter races with a 420mm width Specialized Roval Rapide handlebar. His brakes levers are fitted straight (Vs inward).
