    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.

    Oh yes. How can I forget. I don't like it, the ETT is absurdly long.

    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.
    1999 Waterford RSE-11, 1995 Waterford 1200, 1989 Specialized Rockhopper Comp
    1989 Raleigh Technium, 1989 Schwinn Traveler, 1986 Specialized Rockhopper
    1984 Specialized Stumpjumper, 1986 Specialized Stumpjumper and just way too many projects to list.

    salsa la cruz, one of the best bikes for the money!
    If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.

    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.
