Here is my Klein Attitude with 700c - Fixie or SS - cyclo cross tyres - Onza brakes modified with longer bars on the cantilevers to reach the wheel - simple mod !

Looks nice. Any tyre/crown interface issues? Doesn't look like the forks would have to compress too far before there would be...

Yes a little - i had to fiddle with the elastomers - running hard + an extra inch of med elastomer each side - the tyre tread still rattles on the underneath of the crown on a big hit on the forks - but i have not had any over the bars events yet !! I will try some more hard elastomers and was thinking of reducing the bump elastomer length to get extra room for more on the travel side.
