the question is, does the 56cm angus have this sloping top tube as well?

trying to decide if i really want one of the group buy frames and trying to juggle between a 53 and a 56 but its just so confusing after reading all kinds of threads about IRO's measuring and top tube measurements meaning more and whatnot.

so, it comes down to the slope factor. sloping is just gross.

Dude, forget about what you've read.

Go on the IRO site, on the specifications page.

All the info you need is right there!!!

Forget the whole seat tube thing! The Top Tube length and Standover height is right there!!

Although, I did learn on this forum that standover height is not as important as TT length.

Check it out and put your mind at ease!!! BUY THE DAMNED THING ALREADY!!!!

i've seen quite a few fixies with this handlebar setup, and i like it.
are these basically mountain bike riser bars?

I don't know if you know Thayer in Savannah, but I'm positive he has a white Angus. He has a black bailey's bag. One of three people there with a Bailey's, now 2 since I'm not there.

Theron? I know he has a white angus (i believe it is) that i'm pretty fond of. Eh, in the end i just said **** it and put down a deposit for a 56. If it doesn't work out then look for a 56cm flat black group buy frame on the trade thread in a few months.
