CX frame for the Sierras

 This is an adventure style disc brake CX platform for exploring the backwoods near Yosemite. The owner of this bike is a trail advocate and has a crew of folks who are building a trail network outside the park.
 This frame and fork are steel but there are a couple modern features. The fork has a tapered steerer and the gearing is a new Sram setup with a pretty huge cassette. There may be only two chainrings up front but the gears are low enough for the high mountains.
The pedals, bars and wheels were the only used parts in the buildup.All else were brand new......the bike rides really smooth and should be good for all-day excursions.
