The *one* time where I find myself wishing the head tube on a 55ish top tube'd frame was shorter! Oh well...

hahahah! Good one!

The custom frame was designed for someone who does not like to bend too much. If you can get your legs over the standover and the reach is OK, you should be fine on the frame.

If it were a 17-19cm head tube it’d be perfect, but over 20cm is too tall.

That bike/frame should look wonky by the numbers in my mind, but looks great!

There should be more which the fit could be appropriate among PL rider/non-racers that not I figure.

You are correct about looking at the numbers only. You have to take the angles into account and then it start to make a lot of sense.

The original intention was to build a road bike that does not require a big drop from seat to handlebar. See how it looks built up. Classy and comfortable and super light.

The build came up to 8.05kg as shown here. Almost no carbon what so ever.
