The rider of this frame is just under 5' 1" but that doesn't mean he can't ride big tires if he wants to. This frame and fork will take the new Bruce Gordon 'Rock 'n road' 700x43 c tires ( It really will....I checked .)
The bike will have the capability to mount racks front and rear but there was no special need for fenders-this is a California bike.
I did a little manipulation to the s-bend Columbus seat stays to get them to work on such a small frame. There are no pre-bent tubes that will work out of the box on a frame like this.
