For all you large-size (20") whippet owners out there, I'm wondering how you're finding the headtube length. If the geo tables are correct, all sizes have a 105mm headtube, which seems incredibly short for a frame of this size. I'm on the brink of pulling the trigger on this frame, and this is the only thing holding me back, since I hate having to run a stack of spacers to get the right fit. I'll be switching a fork back & forth between the whippet & my FS frame, which has a 145mm headtube: that'll be a hell of a lot of steerer tube showing.
So... anyone else finding the short headtube an issue, or is everyone just running a whole lot of spacers? (Or a huge seat-to-bars drop?)
