The Paycheck


You're making a smart choice when you choose this Cyclocross Frame. This CX rig was designed with one thing in mind, shredding capability. As a reviewer pointed out, "There’s not a whole lot to say about it other than it looks rad and handles much better than any other cross bike I’ve ridden."

Ride it on the gravel, the road or the trails. It’ll take pretty big tires. The tubing is the highest quality. We decided to make the main triangle out of oversize steel. The rear end is has ample clearance. It’s been designed around standard components, buy new stuff with the money you’ll save on this frame or pocket the cash, buy some beer and use stuff you have laying around. It’ll deliver you wherever you want to go. The perfect distraction from all of this carbon/aluminum madness. You'll be served up a daily reminder why you're a part of this special group, you're on a handmade american bike. 

Your Wraith purchase includes a frame/fork. We'll leave the rest of the build up to you. Our frames will fit a 27.2mm seatpost and the proven english threaded BB.  It's designed around a 140mm rear and 160mm front rotor.  The rear end spacing is 135mm. The frame has provision for two bottles.  The frame will arrive fully prepped for your build. Seat tube is 31.7mm. The frame is designed for a top pull front derailleur .

I waited a while before writing this review. I didn't want to jump in to it too quickly.
I have thrown everything at this frame, and it's taken it all.
Climb up asphalt roads to Mt. Diablo on 700x28. Stiff, nimble, stable, light, quick.
CX racing: Take off the bottle cage and put on the 34s. Same attributes as above apply. Plenty of room to move around in the cockpit, but stable enough that you won't be chewing dirt. Solid and nimble for the tight turns, but still stiff for that last sprint to the finish.
Singletrack: Throw on the Bruce Gordon Rock n Roads and hit the trails. Okay, obviously, this is not a lounge chair, full-suspension MTB. That doesn't mean it's not a blast on the trails.
Summary: This is the only bike I've used for anything since I built it. You should ride one too. Thanks Adam!
