I've been riding my Soul now for about 1.5 years. Fantastic bike for me. It is set up with 1X10 drivetrain and it works very well but... I've fallen in love with singlespeed in the last 4 years and frankly, I've ridden my SS everywhere I've gone with my 1X10... (or very close...)to the point where I'm thinking of converting my Soul to SS. I know about the Philcentric (I have one on another bike)but I would like to be able to shorten the wheelbase some more, and the only way to do that would be by modifying the rear with the addition of adjustable dropouts.
Has anyone done or considered doing this? Is it fairly easy to have someone modify and weld the dropouts?
