Pidcock’s 2022 Bike size
Thomas Pidcock is 1m70 tall and rides the Pinarello Dogma F size 50cm (aka 465mm according to Pinarello Size Chart).
There are four riders of 1m70 in the team Ineos-Grenadier 2022 sharing the same frame size; Richard Carapaz, Eddie Dunbar, Brandon smith Rivera, and Pidcock himself.
Pidcock’s fitting on his bike is the top of the Fizik Antares R1 saddle at 710mm to the center of the bottom bracket. The seat post has a 25mm setback, and the saddle setback is 61.8mm.
The tip of the saddle to the virtual center of the handlebar’s clamp is 535mm.
The MOST Talon Integrated handlebar is a one-piece combo with the stem. The width of the handlebar is 400mm, and the stem length is 110mm with 8 degrees angle.
The Shimano Dura-Ace crankset is 170mm in length, and the chainrings are Shimano 12-speed standard 54/40t.
Shimano is the official sponsor of the team Ineos-Grenadier, therefore the full Dura-Ace 12-speed equips the bike as recommended in Shimano’s manual.
No ceramic bearings or other exotic parts than Shimano are on the bike.
Thomas Pidcock is racing the mountain stages of the Tour de France with the new Shimano Dura-Ace C38 wheels with Continental Competition Pro Ltd. Tubular in a 26mm section.
The brake levers of the team Ineos-Grenadier riders are in line with the drops, unlike the current growing trend among the peloton to set the brake hoods inward.
