Big Block in Off Road Trim

Last night I got ambitious and finished a longstanding project to turn my original prototype Big Block into an off road machine.  There are miles of gravel and trail that I can work into my morning commute and there is a set of trails (Theo Wirth) that are about 10 miles from my house, which is too far to ride my single speed mtn bike, that I want to hit up with this thing.  I'm even thinking that I could happily ride Cross on it.

Two brakes, a 44X17 fixed gear, 32c Ritchey Speedmax tires, XTR Canti Levers, beat to hell 612 Track Crank early samples, and a riser bar.

For those inquiring minds here are some shots of the tire clearance with 32c Ritchey Speedmax tires

This is what my new white bike looks like with a 25c tire for comparison
