thanks! When laying out the frame, I ran the toptube so it met the seattube at the same height as the rear wheel – my logic being that sloping the toptube doesn’t increase the frontal area, but it does leave more seatmast clear above the frame, which might be better for the airflow through the middle. Plus I like the look, and the smaller front triangle is stiffer.
Cheers,
Rob.
