Finally got my 2souls Slim Jim built up. Still need to shorten the hydraulic hoses and remove a steerer spacer or two but otherwise it's ready for action. It's an XL frame, Reynolds 853, 67.5°HA, 70.4°SA with sliding dropouts.
I've been riding a blue pig for most of the winter and it's an easy transition to the big wheels and slack geometry of the slim jim. It was hard to get a real impression with so much snow on the trails but one thing that was apparant is that it climbs really very well,even with the seat stays set pretty short. It feels really well balanced and surprisingly light (not weighed it yet)
The frame finish and details are lovely. The matt powder finish is really eye-catching and the screw on cable guides are neater than others I've seen. I can't wait for the snow to melt so I can see how it performs in the mountains.
Nice ride this afternoon on the Geissberg in northern Switzerland but there was a surprising amount of snow at the top. Fire road was fun but the trails were very slow going...
