Actually it does have a sloping top tube. It's a 48cm and with a frame that small to get something close to the right standover they have to slope the top tube when you stick with 700c wheels.

My other road bike is a custom frame by a frame builder in Ames, Iowa named Jeffrey Bock (made in '88). It also has a sloping top tube and it's Reynolds 753.

I guess it comes with the territory when you're inseam challenged.
