All purpose 'cross machine

This frame is for one of the former editors of Cyclocross magazine. I always like to get industry and former industry folks on my bikes.
This is pretty much the straight-up Euro chassis with fender eyes and bosses on the bridges.
You might ask " Why such thin tubing on the bridges ?" When you run out of the fatter tubes and the fame has to get done , you use the thinner stuff. I change the guage of the bridges once in awhile to get a different look. In this case it is a pretty graceful touch and since the bridges are only there for fender support, they don't need to be larger. The .049 wall tubing is stronger than it needs to be anyway.
