Now tell me you engineering peeps,

Why did they weld that lower seat tube to it? It doesnt serve a purpose at all apart from the front mech? Seems a little ott?

Err, if you chopped it, where would you have the front mech? Unless you mean just have the one ring up front? :?

Yeah, that would be OK with the right size chainring I guess.

Ah, I see Thwang. Yep, that would be a lot neater.
