its too 650C
but we already have a nice set of 650C wheels and the frame was super cheap.
it was a budgetary consideration. For $400 of brand new frame what would have been faster?
it may help you feel smug to have no spacers on your bike, and sure it looks better, but from a pragmatic perspective the only thing we are giving up is, well nothing really. Its not a carbon fork or anything in danger of snapping.
a short/tall bike like a cannondale might fit better but they don't sell anything fast for $400
a bigger cervelo would have been too long
