I saw this bike in a magazine and thought it looked weird. Wanted to get a better look, so I went to the website and found the same thing on a different bike, so it is deliberately done.

WTF is going on here? Where is the cable stop and what is up with that cable angle? I'm not judging and I don't know anything about the brand. Just trying to figure out what's trying to be accomplished there. Maybe there is a cable stop hanging off one of the stem bolts?
