    Show me your sloping top tubes

    Tradition dictates that top tubes should be straight, but sloping top tubes offer versatility in frame sizing and design. Many here state that they will only consider level toptubes, no matter what the cost in practical functionality, but I am not one of them. So, come forward and show your sloping top tubes in defiance with tradition. Forward sloping top tubes are welcome.

    yeah I second the forward sloping tube. Frames all pursuit-ed out make me weak in the knees.
