Tires are Compass Bon Jon Pass set up tubeless but I'm moving those to another set of wheels I recently finished and putting some Schwalbe tubeless tires on here.
I think Craig referenced this bike when I ordered my Ultraline (he mentioned having done more mixed-used interpretations of the cx platform in the past). He took it in the other direction with the chainstays for mine- longer, rather than shorter, to accommodate the confluence of 142x12 spacing, heel clearance, and 40mm tire clearance with a double crank. Of course, for me at 6'5" a cm of extra chainstay doesn't affect handling the way it would on a smaller bike. I keep coming back to the this thread as I anticipate my own 'zetti.
