Just look at the top view picture, the stem area sits behind the frontmost part of the bar.

In the end the length of the stem does not matter, the only thing that matters is the location of the hands in relation to the steerer tube. You could have gotten exactly the same rider position and steering characteristics by having the stem a little bit longer and bending the bar differently.

I just don't get it, they put all this effort in putting a 5mm dent in the bar and then do a 20mm forward sweep on it. Wouldn't it be easier to curve the bar differently to get the same hand position instead of requiring a special bar & stem combo?
