I tend to think the Down-tube is More "Main".. but sloping top tubes appeal to the younger customers,
coming off BMX and MTBs, that also have sloping top tubes.. its the familular-ity, thing..
Cyclocross Race bikes will have a more horizontal top tube
because they have to be shouldered and run, bike on the shoulder,
up steep hills in races, occasionally..
they are not hard to find if you go to bike shops and ask..
How does it affect bike handling if any?
not any more than any other double-diamond frame at the same price point.
