For new I would suggest the Black Mountain Cycles road frame. Has what you are asking for.

Does anyone make a drop bar in MTB diameter...

The CC TT is square while the BMC has an inch or two of slope, allowing for...

Now the fit police! A twofer!

Won't get into it and those who prefer to jam their balls when they stand over their bikes. About 1 1/2 inch of stand over. Fits just fine.

I respect your thoughtful opinion, but larger tubing, such as on Madison, will make a difference in performance. The original CC's were made out of 531 tubing, but because so many of them broke,...
