This is maybe the tallest cyclocross frame I have ever built. The rider is 6'9" and very long legged. The disc brakes are a good choice for anyone over 200 lbs. Hopefully this bike will see a lot of use in the midwest 'cross courses. The eyelets were left on as the bike will also serve as a commuter during the off season.
Yes, that is a 270 mm head tube. The steerer has a 4" re-enforcement to help cut down on fork flex during heavy braking. It's a really long steerer so I'm pulling out all the tricks I know to make this bike feel solid.
