any mention of the bike and/or riders dimensions?
if we're talking about someone of the GS size ranges with a high Ape Index, it might not be out of the question,...
i wouldn't be surprised if it's just another case of someone too fond of the frame they've got to get one that actually fits trying to kludge it into "sorta' fitting",... but it would be interesting to know more of the back story.
(heck, i've got 160mm stems on early MTBs, but i am a GS-sized guy with a high Ape Index, and MTB Top Tubes were shorter in the early days,...)
