Triple triangle frames

What frames have the triple triangle?

I know gt, derosa, And a hand full of polish and taiwanese frames have them, But what other companies have the triple triangle frame?



Hate that brake bridge.

Personal fan of jan's work. Talking to him about a frame :3

You see those pretty frequently on legit TT bikes. It always looked goofy to me too but I assume it's a sensible setup for some specific purpose/position.

I'm familiar with the setup, but those bars in the post are not like those on the Nishiki. Notice how the part that goes upward is longer than the flat.

It was sensible setup for Laurent Fignon in the 80's prior to Greg LeMond's "new" TT bar setup that was equally ugly

So, what's the deal with triple triangle frames? They look soooo cool but is there specific reason they are designed like that?

I'm sure it's relative to stiffening the frame ... perhaps we should ask Pythagoras
