So a while ago I had ordered a 'hustle' as a bit of a treat to myself. Finally got around to building it up in the past month or so.

Build list:
The hustle: m/l frame
Whiskey fork
Athena shifters, front, rear mechs
Chorus 12-25 cassette
Old old record brakes
Lightning cranks 172.5mm bsa
expresso titan pedals
Ritchey 110m wcs stem
Ritchey 42cm wcs bars
Ritchey superlogic 1 bolt post
China carbon saddle (Hylinx)
Soul 2.0 wheels, michelin pro race 4 service course
some generic bar tape
lifeline carbon water cages

weight: 7.46kg - not exactly super light, she rides delightfully and much lighter than she weighs!

some new brakes could probably save me near 200grams I reckon... aside from that I don't think there is much scope without getting quite exotic.

Been eyeing a steel bike for myself. Hows the ride?

Really nice actually... smooth but can put the power down when you push it. I would say it is a little slower steering than my s3, but just a touch. Adam @ wraith is an excellent chap to deal with. I would recommend and you will not be disappointed.

Not heard of wraith, looks great! How much did the frame weigh? What steel?

I like what I see here. Stiff head tube with the front tubes looking sort of compliant. Finished off with what appears to be a stiff backend especially the chain stays. Well done!

Got mine in the cave (also ml) waiting to be built up. Intro offer was too good to pass up. Going to go full Chorus plus whatever from my stupidly big quiver of wheels, probably alu tubs.

Yours is looking hot [emoji76]
