Frame option: Integrated seatpost clamp
All of the integrated clamps shown here are accompanied by some sort of dropped toptube gusset, but you don't have to have one to get the other. This option is usually fabricated with a sleeve for double wall thickness, making it an excellent choice for added durability needs.
On the "strictly-bling" side of things, the sleeve becomes a canvas for some added expression with shapes, maybe even a hand-carved initial.
