New bike pics: 'Duck Egg' Soul
If there’s one thing I’ve picked up from bring on here is the correct headset logo alignment and the tyre/valve alignment is correct so all looks right which explains the “on rails” experience so you won’t die! 😛 nice colour btw! I’ll be looking for another ht to replace my commuting db mtb next year I should stop looking now…. So pretty!Posted 4 years ago
Very nice (although admit red bits don’t do it for me… but each to their own).
How did you run full length cables? Did you drill out the guides?
I’ve been on a couple rides on my orange one with a similar set up and was instantly impressed…totally inspires confidence and comfort levels were great.Posted 4 years ago
I know a few of you like your Soul’s so thought I would share, after lots of mouse hovering over the ‘orange’ colour option I clicked on ‘duck egg’, and I think it really works with the red highlights.
Comes in at just over 26lbs and handles like it’s on rails!!
Oh, and I know the wall needs repointing 😉Posted 4 years ago
Thanks guys, red bits are staying for the time being, but I’ve got black ones to go on when I fancy, maybe the winter…. I think the sun shining on Sunday was enough to make me think it works!
Yeah, Talas forks so best of both worlds!
Oh and I need to shorten the hoses at some point, but I’m having too much fun riding it at the moment!
I’m not running full outer cables which is a shame, but I couldn’t bring myself to take a drill to my brand new frame!Posted 4 years agokudos100Member
Don’t listen to these colour blind fools, it looks great. IMO it needs a red headset and black grips to finish it off. The red grips are just a tad too much.
Needs a red hope headset quick smart. Collar and cuffs Peat, collar and cuffs.
Someone else has taste in this thread. Good man.
Edit no 2: Also, please remove the yellow sticker on the forks, it is offending me.Posted 4 years agoahsatSubscriber
Looks good neat_peat. Also got mine kind of finished this week. Frame was from my new husband on our wedding day and a few bits have come of the blinged up rockhopper. However, the new 15mm axle forks means I need to sort a set of wheels out (once we have recovered a bit from the wedding costs) so they are a bit miss matching at the moment.
First ride on it last night, and first ride on steel and it was really nice. Have to get used to riding a hardtail again (normally ride my Nicolai Helius CC) and the seat post seems to be slipping but otherwise all good.Posted 4 years agoahsatSubscriber
Its a small. I’m 5’9″, but dont have the world’s longest body (typical woman dimensions) but a 32-33″ inside leg. The top tube length on the small soul was the same as on my rockhopper, and have to say after riding it last night I am glad I didnt get the medium as I want it to be small and chuckable(ish). I know it has a good bit of seat post, but it is still a reasonable way off the max mark.
And cheers 😀Posted 4 years ago
