At that small of a frame size, 650c wheels make a lot of sense for reducing toe/wheel interference, keeping the TT short while retaining a resonably handeling head tube angle and for getting the headtube low enough for an aggressivly low handlebar position. A 700c wheel and the shortest possible headtube still will likely push the stem/bars upward too high to get good drop from the saddle height.
