stinner frameworks x mudfoot x codeine cyclocross flatbar

i was given this frame/fork/stem by the previous owner who had it custom made to his specs. its a big bike, but the original owners legs are like, an inch shorter than mine. so i knew i couldnt build it up comfortably with drops, which is fine, because i already have a cx bike with drops and i didnt want to build two of the same thing.
so i went pdx style with the flatbars even though i will probably never leave southern california ever again.
drivetrain is a mix of sram red/force/apex, brakes are paul, headset and bb are king, bars and post are thomson, stem and fork are enve, and the tool roll is by gucci.
right now its borrowing the wheels from my crux until i can find a nicer silver 32h american classic 135 spaced rear hub from the 90s that will match the front hub i already have. pair those with a velocity a23 set up tubeless and thats pretty much the perfect wheel for my local terrain. so, outside of that wheel issue, the build is pretty much finalized as is.

Looks like a fun ride! Been considering flats or swept back bars for awhile...it's post like these that make me nearly make the switch!

I like it.

The whole flat bar cx bike may be a thing, but it makes sense. Alright for racing and definitely for general riding.
Question...about how much more reach over a drop bar set-up do you ideally want to position the flat bars correctly? 2-3-4cm? I'm thinking of the ridiculously long stem I would have to get to convert my drop bar cx.

im not a numbers guy, but i could probably swap out the fork (that someone else cut down) and paint matched stem for a regular enve fork and a positive rise thomson stem and run drops just fine.
flat/riser bars and bmx pedals just seemed like the most practical way to get a frame thats just ever so slightly too small for me to work for my super long arms and legs.

I have a Redline CX that has alternately been a flat bar and a drop bar bike. For the drops, I use a 110mm stem and a nitto classic bend bar ; for a flat setup, I use a 140mm stem and 630mm flat bar to get myself in a similar position. That's a looonngggg stem!

even though the top tube lengths probably differ, this bike with a 110 stem and flatbars kind of feels like my crux (110 with drops) if i had my hands on the tops the whole time instead of out on the hoods.

did the previous owner give a reason for spec'ing the rear as 135mm without a disc?

sinner frame works

135 rear laces up to be a stronger wheel overall, or something.
