Thanks all for your interest. I will pop in time to time to answer questions you have.
Yes, our bikes have a very sloped downtube. There are many reasons for this.
1. Stiffer Bottom bracket. A must for singlespeeders
2. Lower standover. 29ers raise standovers
3. A small weight savings
I have been running Stans new Olympic 29 rim with great success. He does not have them posted on his website yet but if you call he will have them soon.
