Yep, that's a common misconception. Go sit a Synapse, Cervelo R3 or Specialized Roubaix (or Secteur). All of them have tall head tubes and compact geometry.

If you installed a 15-20 degree stem they would easily match the Quick 1's body position.

And then you have at least 5 positions for your hands, and the ability to use your brakes and shift in at least 3. Flatbar + bar ends = two positions, no brakes or shifting for one of them.
