I think I did some research on this frame a while ago.
Believe it or not, Dee Snyder of Twister Sister fame got interested in racing when his children were growing up.
He started to race himself and wanted a long frame because he is very tall.
S&M was the sponsor who stepped up and accomodated him.
Stephen, NBL49a, brought one frame like this to Bellflower this year.
Yeah, it's a killer bike !!! But I wouldn't call it long. My Widowmaker has a 21.5"tt (center of head tube to center of seat tube), so I don't think it's particularly long. Back when I used to ride trails on it (in the 90's), I had to run an XL stem to make it roomier.
