This frame will go to a rider on the team . While it isn't the only disc brake bike on the team it is in a minority. There will be more of this type in the future as certain course conditions favor the better mud clearance of this setup.
The bike will have a tapered steerer fork but be fairly straightforward in the buildup.
The downtube on this frame is a bit heavier duty, a 44 mm Easton elite MTB version. The frame is still only 3 lb. 8 oz. as you see it. It has some newer heavy duty chainstays, hence the absence of the little gussett on the drive side that you might have seen on earlier frames.
