The owner of this frame will be commuting over the Golden Gate into S.F. on a daily basis but had the thought that having the big-tire option would be nice for taking dirt shortcuts and detours now and then.
This 3 lb. 13 oz. True Temper OX frame is pretty sporty for a big tire bike and will have a custom order Wound-Up carbon fork and Shimano long reach calipers , my default brake for this type of build.
It was a little tricky making the bendy stays conform to these lug-style dropouts but the result was nice. My supply line for my most favorite dropouts isn't returning my calls so I guess I'll have to try something new, maybe more of the type you see here.
