165mm is surely a bad frame size?

Nope. Perhaps the drop required necessitates a smaller frame, hence the stem length?

The stem length thing is starting to seem like a bit of a pissing contest among pro's at this point :noidea:

Yeah it looks that way. If you judge it off the top of each wheel.

Also photos on VeloNews of riders on the TMR01 at TDU.

Just had a chat with a friend a friend the other day. He was certain that is was completly straight. I beg to differ.
It's pretty hard to see from the geometry pic.

How do they wear arm warmers, leg warmers, vest and then no gloves? I have to wear gloves well before I require leg warmers .

Durbridge got a bike from the neutral service, or he's trying something different?

It's actually not that cold. If you keep the core warm then the hands and feet will follow.

Mine don't. Anything below 6°C and my fingers start to really suffer with the cold.
