    I hope it has components and even wheels. That frame won't shift well or roll well without them.

    Maybe. Frame is not suppose to shift or roll. :)

    I hope the head tube isn't ovalized, as you wrote... nice frame nevertheless!

    ha...good catch, Steve. Meant to write top-tube.

    Here are a few of the build-parts. Will likely transfer my TRP CX fork from the Routt.

    I know. :)

    That said, most of the cx/gravel bikes are between 65-70mm. I'll use this bike for a few cx races, as well; given that I'll be using ~38mm tires, I get a bit more offset on the clearance.
