Traditional non-sloping top tube CX bikes?

Can someone list a few of these bikes? Not a big fan of compact looks.

I know Empella is one, but I can't find their official website.

I've never heard anyone use ETT with a horizontal TT. Usually, that term is used with sloping TT bikes seeing as the effective and actual TT length are different.

Have you looked at a Gunnar or Waterford. Gunnar is cheaper but Waterfords can be ordered in any size you want. Actually they're a factory custom.

i think the shorter list would be cross bikes with a sloping top tube. most manufacturers still use a horizontal tt on cross bikes for ease of portage.
