Triple chainring crankset sure looks touring .

Eyelets on drop-outs , and brazed-on fittings for single water bottle , could go either way ( seem more touring than cyclocross racing to me ) .

But about the TIRE clearances . . .

The rims and tires are 27-inch .

The frame might have been made for 700c .

I'll bet you could fit a fatter tire in there , if it was 700 size .

> I was sort of wondering the same when first looking but wasn't familiar with the bikes of that era. I was thinking it didn't look like it could handle a large capacity tire but was unsure what the norm was for cross bikes of old. I never connected the triple crank with being opposite of true old style cross with a single ring...Good observations.
