Tyrell is still a german company and their frames are great!! I especially like the Erebus brown which is actually chrome welded using Columbus steel technology.

I want to check the bikes and try it out on outdoors. Experience the thrill of riding new bicycle. I really want to have this last one here. Good luck for me. thanks a lot.

Either you live with overlap or you are designing a transportation/utility bike where you can adjust things for a front load, have free toe clearance and a short effective top tube. Way back in school I worked on this, one of the limiting connections to top tube length for at the time was a standard level top tube was the head tube connection. I figured out a few alternatives, I forget the minimum number I came up with where small toe clips and 165 mm cranks while not raising the Bottom bracket the bottom bracket )as was often done on small frames to the detriment of handling with no help in the standover) but it was under 59 cm. I was not happy with the solution of relaxing the head angle and keeping lots of rake to make that clearance. I had a bike with serious overlap, and while not good for a fixed on the street, it was not a big deal, yes, one did have to know the limits. 650’s cure much, but at the time were not viable., especially for a performance bike.

http://www.workcycles.com/home/handmade-city-bicycles/workcycles-kruisframe-aka-pastoorsfiets
The Pastoorfiets solves the problem I mentioned of an overly long seatpost by bringing the lower or rear top-tube (terminolgy here?) diagonally up in the back.

But I’m not fully clear on how that helps–the real problem with 700c and 5′ and under is toe clip overlap. I think of this design as being helpful towards a long head tube, as needed when the wheels are small compared to the frame size, not vice versa.

I penned someting similar long ago, but used a horizontal tube at the same diameter as the diagonals. I have to think about the tall rear drops, and I agree it probably is heavier a tad. My design was to allow the 6′ and a bit under crowd to still use 700c wheels. Looks like it works for a bigger frame too. When I see Tyrell I either think of Bladerinner or Formula 1 though, then it should be deep blue…

This is busy in other ways, but at least it looks like it would be quite stiff.

Can’t say if particularly better than any traditional layout, but it’s sort of neat, anyway.
