top tube?

I don't think I've ever seen such an oddly curved (or perhaps bent?) top tube.

I suppose it's the geometric equivalent of a sloping top tube,  but it's kind of an odd look.

Definitely unique.


  1. This was not an uncommon approach by the Japanese manufacturers to making frames with 27-inch wheels fit riders of smaller stature. It seems that many sloping top tube designs we see on women-specific frames today incorporate geometric compromises that could be avoided by using 559 BCD wheels.

  2. if it works, it's good! and so much more better than a car....!
