Does anybody have a road bike with the top tube slanted down like a mountain bikes? All of Schwinn's road bikes are built this way, and several other companies have bikes with the top tube slanting down.
It seems to me that with a slanted top tube the bike would put you in a more upright position, which is less efficient. But maybe I'm wrong.What is everbody elses take on the slanted top tube design??

Sloping top tubes dont necessarily change your riding position. It can but a lot of that can be affected by the actual angle of the headtube and seat tube. Also depends on where the top tube intersects the seat tube. I wouldn't stress about the slope top tube. Most of the bike manufacturers are doing that now. Makes getting on and off a little easier and its not a nut buster.
