Geraint Thomas came into this year's Tour de France with hopes of building upon last year's outstanding General Classification performance. However after a difficult Tour de Suisse and things not working out quite as planned in the Pyrenees, the Welshman has occupied his more familiar role as a loyal lieutenant to Team Sky's leader, Chris Froome. He has often shared the hard work chasing breaks and setting a painful tempo in the mountains with his teammates, all onboard his Pinarello team issue bike.

Team Sky confirmed a further four-year partnership with Pinarello earlier this week. Already the most successful Tour de France bikes in history, the seven-year partnership with the Italian frame builders has so far seen 232 wins, two world championships, 656 podiums and 26 Grand Tour stage wins.

At 1.83 metres tall, Thomas rides a 56-centimetre frame. The classic Team Sky black and blue frame is complemented with components from Shimano, Fizik and PRO.

Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 electronic shifting combined with 53-39 chainrings, an 11-28 cassette and Dura-Ace cranks equipped with a Stages powermeter complete the gearing for the Welshman.

The Dura-Ace C50 wheels contribute to aerodynamics for the bike and are wrapped in Continental Competition Pro tubular tyres. Thomas rides with a 131mm stem and while the majority of the bike's components are made from carbon, Team Sky opt for aluminium PRO stems.

Unless you are lucky enough to be offered a custom painted frame from your team's frame supplier, the saddle is about the only personal component choice riders get to make on their bikes. Thomas is seated upon the popular Fizik Arione, and like all of the Team Sky riders the saddle is marked by the mechanics with a permanent marker for ease and consistency when setting up the bike.
