no, its a bike that doesn't have a seat tube. instead, its got a CF beam that extends out towards the back wheel that is attached to the top tube near the stem, and the seat is located on that beam. the beam absorbs shock, which is one of the problems that people have with upright bikes. the geometry can be about the same as a regualr bike, it just looks kinda funny.
