Steel big-tire road bike

There's a lot of steel here-frame fork and stem. I only make about 3-4 stems a year so it is a rare item. The rider of this frame races MTB and cyclocross at a high level....quite literally as he can get several feet of air off even a modest jump. This bike will be mostly staying on the ground. .
The head tube collars are a real throwback to the mid 80's when I was putting them on almost every fillet brazed bike. Now I use them only a couple times a year.
This tall frame makes for some different lines in the seat stays with a long , almost parallel section.
