Figured out I "needed" a play bike......but as always it needed to be rigid and Rohloff compatible......so here's the start, 2Souls Slim Jim 29er All Mountain steel frame (custom butted 853......pretty heavy and sturdy frame at 2.6 kilo!)
in Harley Davidson Warlock Grey rough powdercoat..... so rough they needed to create a leather bandarole "decall" as normal ones wouldn't stick :D
Will be build with Rohloff/Thomson and Groovy parts as a strong fun/CC bike, some 470mm Waltworks rigid steel forks to make it a bit more agile than it was designed for :wink:
collecting parts now, update in a week or two.....

more info on the brand (site is working again now but looked like it was hacked by Russian hackers this afternoon :roll: so be carefull!)

Of course I know the bike very good :D
And I can't wait to see how it looks like with a rigid fork and a Rohloff.

ok, not enough patience to wait for some parts (thomson post/stem, 29er wheelset and LUV handles) :D I decided to build it quickly around my 650B wheelset. Looks ok, but will certainly be changed to 29er and LUV handles.
Like the look of the Waltworks forks but not too sure they'll handle the punishment it wil get.......waiting for 2souls to come with a rigid fork ......... or go for some suspension for the first time in my life :roll:


here's some pics in 650B outfit:
