This is what you get when you ask car designers to design a bike frame: http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/photos/ ... e-1/248859

Are we talking a massive amount of toe overlap on this particular frame in smaller sizes?

Wait, why is McLaren to blame for Cav's choice of fit and kit?

Think they had more to do with the carbon layup than the frame geometry.

Toe overlap is irrelevant

That's what I tend to think. Unless you're regularly doing U-turns on narrow roads I can't see how it'd ever be a problem?

Just don't pedal thru the U turn and you'll be fine.

Unfortunately, not all the time.
Pedal through the turn with the toe pointing up and you'll be fine.

I wonder how many times Cav will topple off in between the team bus, signing on and the start line? Or how many places he will lose on the last bend concentrating on the alignment of his cranks instead of the race?
