    I remember seeing a 57 on Ebay a few months back. The seller had a really good description with measurements. Maybe search Ebay for completed auctions? I'd love to get my hands on one of those.

    wow, that is alot of toeverlap... I never understood the geometry of those frames...

    the bend is for the rear wheel to be jammed in there to make it super tight.. it looks like it could have had a straight tube and been just fine? It doesn't even look like the rear drop will allow it to go that far in.

    bent tube model =/= 2002 Al model

    2002 Al = sloping top tube, red. [in the little picture above]

    Not saying that bent tube model won't have "insane amounts of toverlap," only that there's another type of aerotrack out there. That I want. in 60cm or bigger.
    call me.


    /edit - since i'm in a mood, I will argue that, while as-is the above aerotrack would not need the curved seattube, at the wheel's furthest insertion it would. check it.

    well, obviously the two bikes pictured bove are different, cause there would be wayyyy less overlap in the blue KHS. the red ones overlap is rediculous. fo rizzle'.

    i've had the bent tube for about 2 1/2 years. has considerable toe overlap with LL clips. was trying to find info so i could order **** today for a new build before having to come home to measure it.

    Regardless of toe overlap, if you're a good rider you can negotiate your way around it just fine. My '99 Flite has about an 1.5" with LL toeclips and it's fine.
