Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

these things wouldn't happen if people would stop building their bikes out of legos.

did you try using less legos?

You frame has "compact geometry" which is more common these days than traditional geometry frames with horizontal top tubes. Look around you, most bikes are like this. There's nothing wrong with it and there's nothing you can really do to correct it without messing up the fit and handling characteristics of the bike. It will ride and fit like a bike with a horizontal top tube...the only real difference is that you have to use a longer seat post. If the look of it bothers you, I suggest you just get used to it.
