Disc brake CX frame for Bakersfield, Calif.

 I call this one the 'Tux'. The black and off-white combo really gives this frame a formal look.....might be something to ride to the academy awards as long as you can dodge all the limos. This frame will be paired up with a carbon disc fork and see varied duties as a commuter, gravel and CX bike. The tubeset is pretty stout and the geometry stable so it should be a reliable-if a bit fancy-ride. The cable routing is my standard road style rather than CX race.
 The painter did a really excellent job masking off the little stripes at the end of the panels. I'm sure that other folks will want this treatment as it looks great without being too over-the-top. Maybe the silver headbadge is a bit fancy but this frame in spite of its appearance is a work horse.
