big-tire road bike for Paul Component 'medium racer' braze-on brakeset

This isn't the really big tire version but it will take 700x28 tires with fenders. The customer even requested a custom stem with a cable guide...... a real throwback to the late '80's when MTB's had cantilevers. V-brakes and ultimately disc brakes killed the need for the guides until lately-cyclocross and these unique center-pull road brakes have created a need on this bike.
This is not a CX frame but a real road frame and fork-it will be fun on the dirt but it will most likely see mostly pavement with some gravel roads, really popular these days.

That is great looking - and very much what I'm thinking about these days...
