Andrew touches on an important point. Drop is relative to wheel/tire size. Sachs I think builds only with 700c wheels and tires within a 23-35mm range. I haven't ever seen any of his bikes outside of that description - no BMX bikes or 29er hard tails.

I tend to think about it from a crank clearance perspective. I start with 85mm of clearance and then go from there depending on type of bike, riding style, etc.
