gross looking, but probably works great on the track. function over form from the looks of it.

These are contradictory statements. Would it be less jackass if the spacers were removed and the stem flipped down?

You realize that this is a track bike, built for the track and will probably get adjusted/sized for the owner to fit like a glove?

Plus the rear wheel is off the ground so the drop looks a lot bigger than it is. Still don't particularly care for the frame, though.

it's not contradictory at all. If the frame is meant to be run with the saddle that high, then you need a ****-ton of spacers to get the bars to a usable level. with the forward slope of the top tube and the high clamp I'm guessing it's meant to be run with the seatpost nearly slammed to the base.

I'm saying despite the stem flipped up and the spacers, there's a jackass amount of drop. it would be even more jackass if the spacers were removed and the stem flipped down. derp.

In a lot cases ive seen, modern track bike = tons of seatpost and upwards stem.
