Cool bike, I think? Is that tri spoke 650c? There seems to be a lot of space between the seat tube and tire.

700c but the frame was custom modified so there is an caliper mount and a disc brake mount rear. But 25c is probably the max rear.

Supposedly Carver? I had the rear chainstays modified to accommodate road/tt size chainrings as well rear bridge for caliper brakes added by a titanium bike builder out in Kyoto’s countryside. Ogre cycles

Also considering rear wheels.

A hed h3 disc brake.

A shamal ultra g3 tubular rim laced to a novatec 28h disc hub with a nonsense selection of soma color spokes.

Chinese Zipp 454 nsw shark rim laced to novatec disc hub.

Leaning towards Juin Tech r1 for the rear.
