That’s a really good point, Hitech. But how does a shorter wheelbase/longer stem improve aerodynamics to a longer wheelbase, longer top tube and shorter stem (giving the same hand position)? Even with no change in seated position in relation to the bottom bracket and the hands remaining in the same spot, I don’t see the need for short wheelbases on the road.  Sure, cross winds may be more of a hassle but in many situations wouldn’t the stability at speed outweigh that con? Maybe the longer wheelbase negatively effects drafting efforts?
