This frame and fork are going to Taiwan.

This is the second order I have gotten from the country that makes more bikes than just about anybody. All of the features on this frame were specified by the customer in Taipei. I believe he has a number of custom bikes but this is his first from me. It is a steel 'cross frame and fork made to accept fenders. The tubeset is Reynolds 853/725 throughout except for the True Temper head tube and Dedaccai wishbone seatstays.
Fender mounts were added to the bottom of the wishbone extension and the chainstay crossmember. I usually don't put a crossmember between the chainstays but it makes for a much more secure fender installation.

I put a little flip in the end of the stays for style and heel clearance. The reynolds tubing is always great to work with although it is hell on the cutters with all that surface hardness.It should be a nice riding bike.
