Cheers all!

I'll post up pics as it comes together, so far I have new Fox 100 forks, Hope minis - just bought off here, CK headset and a pair of first generation Hope wheel Q/R's in silver - also courtesy of RB classifieds. A fair bit to go then, I hope to be riding it spring time-ish!

That's purdy.

Loving the paint color 8)

Could you do a pic of the dropouts as they look both sliding (paragon) and swinging (blackcat) :shock:

Looking forward to updates.

Just for you 'posh mark' and you're kinda right on both counts - sliding/swinging and they're made by Paragon exclusively for Soulcraft. I've also got a hanger dropout incase I go that way.

Thank you Squire.

They are very neat.

I won't ask about price :oops: but curious as to lead time on the frames?

Price is on the website as lead time - just double the lead time though and you're covered.

Nice! that will bring a smile to your face for sure.


What's the colour, I think I see the difficult to photograph metallic flake finish?

Enjoy!!

Soulcraft call it ''Pistachio" and it does have a lacquered flake finish. For powder coat it really is good, pretty much inline with a modern car finish - which is what I do for a living incidentally. I've always admired the colour so when it came to selecting, there was no hesitation!

Thanks
