This frame and fork are pretty much a general purpose 'cross platform. There's rack and fender braze-ons but the tubeset is fairly light . The geometry is my standard euro race as the rider might try a bit of cyclocross racing.
If racing is not in the immediate future of the bike it will be very good transportation in the rainy climate of Portland , Oregon. The tubing is nearly all True Temper OX . The Ritchey rear dropouts are a bit of a throwback to a time about 15 years ago when they were what I used on most of my road and 'cross frames.
