700x43 Bruce Gordon rock 'n road tires will it into this steel frame and fork with room for fenders. I used a pretty wide fork crown to get the cantilever bosses at the correct spacing and to not crowd the tire.
There's even 'low rider' rack bosses on the fork, something I seldom get requests for these days. This frame has the full touring braze-on setup but will not be a fulltime dedicated tourer. I was told that the bike would see gravel duty as well as commuting when not being used on a tour.
The S&S couplers indicate that there's a good chance this bike will go to some far away places,
