sweet seat angles

So a "Leading" ebay frame company has an $800 lugged steel frame. I think that's fine. Just kind of funny that they brag about their track specific geometry. Apparently track specific geometry means too steep of a seat angle for endurance events, plus a top tube of almost 57cm for someone who is 5 foot 9. Also, Kazane frames suck (not mentioned by name) because they are made of 4130, which happens to be the most popular tubeset for keirin frames (an upgrade from 019). I guess Dolan, Look, and Teschner must be wrong about seat tube angles, too.
