No, it isnt bent it just looks that way. Ask the seller if it has any Pekinese in its blood line that could explain the stubby front end. I believe this bike was up for auction within the last 6-9 months and the same question came up. I would ask the seller to measure the wheelbase and see what he says. They are trying to cover it up by saying these bikes had short wheelbases, I think he knows good and well why that wheelbase is so short.
Mark, don't like a short wheelbase (under 38.5) on a road bike, Poore
