Are horizontal track style dropouts available as a custom option on frames other than the Street Dog? One of my next builds will be a single speed 'cross bike, and I dig the Crosshairs.

Also, will the Crosshairs fit most 700x45's without fenders? Obviously the possibility of track dropouts would change tire clearance depending on wheel position.

You can order the CrossHairs with track dropouts as a custom geometry option - and have the make to measure fit, as well. Tire clearance would be a major issue with track dropouts because of the spacing issues. We are exploring a double-bend chainstay option to fit bigger tires.

The bigger the tire, the more you might want to consider a custom Ruffian - let's say with a cross fit and handling. This lets you run disc brakes. The kind of riding that necessitates bigger tires - like lots of mud, also make disc brakes more desirable.
