So...why all the sloping TTs on 'cross bikes

I just saw the article on the Santa Cruz Stigmata over at Velo News and the pics got me wondering: why are a lot of the new CX bikes coming with sloping TTs?  I understand the entire making fewer sizes thing but, as a big guy (6'4") I find it a lot more awkward to shoulder a bike in my size with a sloping TT.See More

CX newbie struggling with size

Hi all!I'm about to buy my first CX bike. I decided to go for the giant TCX SLR1. I'm a bit confused with sizing. Before I rode a Trek Madone 56'' top-tube. For the giant I don't know if I should go for the M (52.5 seat-tube and 54.5 top-tube) or the M-L (54.5 S-T and 56 T-T). Oh, I am 6 foot and 32 3/4 inseam. What do you think? What are you guys riding? Anyone on a TCX?Thanks!!!See More
