How was this for cross? What kind of tires could this frame accommodate? I was thinking of making a Windsor the Hour into a SSCX of sorts and any help would be appreciated :)

BetahProd says:

The clearance depends on your fork's rake and drop outs. My front fits up to a 28c (it gets noisy during mud/sand) and the rear fits a 32c/35c (depending if I'm using a new tire & tube, naturally they stretch over time). And having road brakes was a huge plus! I'd recommend you to try it before getting a cross bike in the future.

How much does it weigh now? It looks like it would weigh much less than 19.6 on that wound up setup.

BetahProd

BetahProd says:

Well it's an estimate. But it weighs around that unfortunately. The frame is just crazy heavy
