This bike will be jumping the trolley tracks and dodging the cars in San Fransisco.
The owner of this frame is a messenger and wanted a bike similar to his current ride, a short upright bike with a fairly high bottom bracket for cornering. My hope is that this really fits the bill.
I made it so there was room for fenders and 28 c tires for all weather conditions. There's even some rack rivnuts in the seatstays-a first for me on an aluminum bike.
The 44 mm downtube is just about the stoutest one I have. Inspite of the beefy tubes, the fame is pretty light.
