Maybe not. Some overlap is common. The bike says kilo time trial so it's going very straight, on a track maybe, for a short distance. No problem.

Toe overlap is very common. You'll get used to it in no time and once you do you won't even notice it.

Yea. I only notice it when I'm going really slow and turning my wheel a lot. In normal riding I never seem to touch the wheel. There was a thread on this not too many weeks ago.

Yes, if you ride hipster track bikes on the road with no brakes. You'd NEVER actually find that to be a problem at the drome.

I find even with overlap you can still get around it by just "toeing down" when needed.

My Vent had enough toe overlap that I could keep the bike stopped at a light by just turning the bars a little to the right.....I used that as a primary commuter and club ride bike for a loooooong time.
