The Low Down

"A lightweight USA made frame that nobody has been able to build and sell affordably for over a generation."

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. You wouldn't expect a frame/fork/headset/collar at this pricepoint to come in at 3.15 lbs.** It’ll take pretty big tires with it's 55mm worth of clearance, 43C is no problem. The tubing is the highest quality from Columbus. We decided to make the main triangle out of oversize triple butted Life with a HSS tapered head tube. Mike our machinist mills all of our bearing cups here in Columbus. We're the only bike company to offer these cups with the HSS head tube. The rear end is constructed from S bend Columbus Zona tubing giving ample clearance. It’s been designed around standard components, buy new stuff with the money you’ll save with the free shipping*, 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 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.The rear end is spaced at 132.5. The frame has provision for a bottle.  The frame will arrive fully prepped for your build. The frame is designed for a top pull front derailleur .

All of the bikes come with a very durable double layer of wraith gray powder coat. If you'd like a bespoke coating check out the options here
