Steel disc brake road frame for So-Cal

This model is becoming pretty popular. I would rate it # 3 on what I build on a monthly basis. The only frames I build more of are CX or gravel frames-similar but with bigger tires. The frame pictured here will take Shimano Di II and flat mount calipers. The fork is an Enve road/disc and the head set is a King NTS tapered 1-1/8"-1-1/4"......a rare spec in general but it isn't rare on my bikes.
The customer went with the classic black and yellow original style decals on a basic white powdercoat. The frame has a PF-30 BB shell so that there will be plenty of room for the wires when a 300 crank spindle is used. With this shell one could also use a Squid EBB and run the bike with an internally geared hub or in a single speed mode.
The tubing is a mix of Columbus Zona and Spirit .
