I've noticed that some road frames from the 70's & 80's sported a pretty steep (headtube being more straight up & down than the usual 73ish degrees)headtube angle. Anyone ever ride on of these frames? How do they handle? being that the wheel is more "under" the bike would one run a shorter stem & longer top tube length to compensate?
