Crust Bikes introducing the Dreamer bike frame

The Dreamer is the slender U.S made cousin of the Evasion. Both are designed for cruising on any road you might want to follow, but the Dreamer is a little more suited for day rides and fair weather touring. The tire clearances are a little tighter, the tubes are a little lighter, and there are one or two fewer braze-ons. The geometry has been tuned a little (just a tiny bit), with a hair longer top tubes, a shade steeper head tubes, and a scant bit more rake. And we used the most modern of axles, 12mm through-axle front and rear.
Here is the stuff we can tell for now. Most of this is set in stone, but some of it (like braze-ons) could still change:
The frame is a tig welded mix of True Temper and Columbus heat treated tubes, 8/5/8 double butted all around, oversize on the smaller frames, and double oversize for the larger frames. Seat and chainstays are S-bend.
Cables will run in full housing under the top tube and on the bottom of the seat stays.
There are two sets of hour-glass rack mounts on the seat stays, for a bag support or something like a Mark’s Rack, but NO rack bosses to support a full size pannier rack. Fender mounting is fully supported.
Bosses are provided for two water bottles in the main triangle, and a manything cage under the down tube.
Rear dropouts are Paragon 12×142 through-axle.
Bottom Bracket is 68mm threaded.
The forks are unicrown with a 1-1/8” threadless steerer. Dropouts are Paragon 12×100 through-axle.
There is a crown through-hole, mid-fork boss, and an hourglass boss near the fork dropouts.
It uses disc-brakes.
650b x 2.25” tire with fenders should fit fine.
Supplied with Paragon DT-Swiss threaded combo-head skewers.
