I presume you guys are refering to the long TT (58.5cm) and relatively short ST (54cm).

I would guess the bike was probably designed to be used with a shorter stem than is standard today. A 58.5cm TT with a 7cm stem is the same as a 55.5cm TT with 10cm stem. A 54cm ST with a 55.5cm TT would seem to be fairly normal for a modern bike.
