Steel 'cross frame with fender room

This frame and fork are the "Euro 'cross" style of frame I offer except that the rear chainstays are a little longer for the 700x35 tire and a fender. This bike will see 60% trail riding but also be used as a race bike when the fall arrives. The customer specifed no rack mounts, only fender eyelets. I guess he has another bike fully outfitted with racks so there's no need to encumber this bike with that.

It's a trick getting a 395 axle-to-crown fork to have fender room. I had to put the fork in the mill and machine off the last bit of excess steerer hanging down below the blades. I missed cutting into the weld by a millimeter !
