Aluminum forest adventure frame

 I will be making more of these in the future. The format is not unlike my team CX race frame except that the tire room has been increased to fit the Bruce Gordon 'Rock 'N Road' 700x43 tires. The bike will have disc brakes and small chainrings.
 The bike will see duties in the forests outside of Seattle. One of our team riders is now a writer and needed a chassis for forest excursions that he will write about in the coming months. There's a third set of bottle bosses on the underside of the downtube, indicating that there will be some long rides.
This model falls into the 'team ti s.l. ' style but this time it is not a steel version. With the high volume tires the added frame stiffness might be welcome on high speed descents.
