Steel 'cross frame for the Czech republic

 The front triangle of this frame is True Temper OX and the rear stays are Reynolds 725. This is a pretty stout tubeset and the frame tips the scale at 4 lb. 3 oz. Not super heavy but still over 4 lbs. This is what the customer requested, essentially to go for durability rather than lower weight.
 I gave the frame a little more tire room as I'm sure that the mud in eastern Europe is serious stuff.
The level top tube makes this look like traditional and should please some traditionalists out there. I had fun building it.
