My Giant track bike

This is how the Giant bikes looked just after I completed it and before it was ridden on the velodrome.
It look a bit (or very?) strange, because the frame is so small and I had to do everything I could to get the position of the saddle and the bars correctly.
I succeeded more or less. It's ridable, but not very comfy because of the short top tube & stem length. It should be a couple of cm extra.
I placed this picture over Abraham Olano's bike for his world hour record attempt (failed)and the similarity of the rider's position is stiking. However: the riders' capabilities cannot be compared.
