Disc brake town-cross 26" wheel frame

The rider of this frame is 4'10 3/4" so it is very small. It will get a new carbon disc fork sold under the 'Whiskey' name that looks pretty impressive to me for the price.
I elected to put the cable adjusters on the head tube as the brake lines should not interfere with the gear cables at all. Disc brakes on tiny bikes really solve a whole bunch of cable routing issues.
Yes, it's like a BMX frame but it will be ridden on the streets of San Fransisco towing a trail-a-bike or a load of groceries. It might get ridden out on the Marin Headlands.....I'm sure it will be fine just about anywhere.
