I guess a more logical choice would be fillet brazed and a tapered or 44mm HT
A carbon fork to go with that set up would be double the price, so “a bit more” would end up 50% more for Winston to make that frame and the cost of a decent fork. If anyone else made it you can add more.
And it’s steel so if you wanted a larger head tube Winston can sort that for £90.
Steel forks are different to carbon for sure but if someone wanted a lugged frame with a tapered steerer I think that maybe even a more “narrow market”
Lugged frame and lugged fork doesn’t seem that “ bizarre” to me but I’m old!
It’s not for everyone but if it is, then it’s still value I believe, I may even take an offer!
I could even just sell the frame and it could be ridden with callipers if that is of any interest.
Thanks @TM for the feedback and bumps anyway!
