What's the geometry like on

What's the geometry like on it? Looks fairly roadie-ish.

that's misleading ! the bike

that's misleading ! the bike is very nervous to steer hands off on the cote de azure is impossible. the frame derived from a road frame (more info at with a track specific rear triangle, reinforced BB and extra layers for the rest of the tubes and joints. The stock size is ML, and the BB is lifted up for extra ground (board) clearance.

It seems like companies like

It seems like companies like Giant and Specialized like to make their track bikes fairly relaxed geometry with a backward sloping top tube. That is just so odd to me that they would do that. Such a nice frameset, but with rather poor geometry.

the geometry of this bike is

the geometry of this bike is for 6 day and scratch/points type races, where you're riding on the track for a much longer distance and you want to be comfortable. it's not going to have the same geometry as a match sprint type frame. the geometry is totally typical of bikes purpose-built for this type of race, another example is the dolan seta.

Compact geometry makes sense

Compact geometry makes sense in sprint events too. The reason behind compact geo's is frame rigidity.

The Cervelo T1 also has a more relaxed headtube angleā€“but nowhere close to a road bike's.

I want it.
