Size? (Frame, clothing, wheel size etc. You can pick 3)
Collection only

Collection only from Bristol, BS16 United Kingdom.  I’m conscious I’m not a regular here so it’s better for everyone if we do the deal in person.

For sale here is my beloved Cotic Simple Soul. These single speed frames were produced in very small numbers and are unlikely to be produced again. Consequently, this is a very rare opportunity

I built this bike because I saw the frame come up secondhand and I always lusted after one of these when they were released.  I had a Soul Titamium at the time and couldn’t justify it (N+1 was limited by ‘finances – beer’ in my youth!).  This was built with love but just doesn’t get ridden enough (I’d guess at less than 200 miles – note new components).  She’s being left out of the fun so it’s time she moved on and had a good time.

This was built with only the very best of components – hope, Mavic, Phil Wood etc. Quick run down of the main components and approx new value as follows but feel free to ask questions:

Easton carbon bars, stem and seatpost (post new to bike)
Ergon GE1 grips (new to bike)
Hope headset (new to bike £90)
Hope tech 3 brakes. These are £330 for the pair new. They were new when building the bike
Hope rotors (new to bike)
Mavic XC717 rims laced to a pair of Phil Wood hubs. These hubs are for life! Look them up if you rd of them. They are £600 alone to buy new
Mavic high roller super tacky
Hope single speed crankset. (new to bike) Costs £265 new and I have the box
Hope BB (new to bike £90)
Hope seat clamp (new to bike)
KMC chain (new to bike)
Hope QR skewer front (new to bike) bolt on rear
Crank Brothers Egg Beater 11 pedals. These are pedals are the top of the range egg beaters. Made from titanium. They cost £399 new. I can swap these for flats if you prefer or I also have almost new size 10 shoes for them
Pace RC31 rigid carbon forks

Just the components priced above are worth around £1,775 so have priced at just under half that cost (not including the frame which you essentially get free! lol ;-)).

I’d be happy to speak to you about the bike and answer any questions.  Just PM me and we’ll arrange something

Test rides welcome with deposit

I will consider splitting if you want a couple of bits but I’m not keen on breaking it down for lots of small bits
