well I quite like it, the 1x9 setup is a nice touch.

it kind of feels like a modern P7, the way it used/ should to be.

Nice looking Soul, love the colour. Cant wait to get my hands on the new Soul frame I have reserved, in bright orange! Was thinking about running a Middleburn Duo set up up front, undecided as yet.

Very nice 8) , downtube decal look's well funky :) , agree about the amberwalls being a nice touch, also the colour matching on the forks.

Very nice... Wicked powder coat job and decals. Who did the paint ? 8)
If I was gonna give constructive criticism I'd say get some silver wheels to match the post / stem etc... but then what do I know about bike style (I've got FSA cranks mixed with M950 on the IF :oops: )

1 x 9's all you need IMO. How are you finding the chainline at the extremes of the cass' ? Doing the same on my Roadrat and I do feel the chain's getting a hard time top and bottom...

That's one nice looking bike..loving the colour matching of the forks and frame.

1X9 also great for simplicity, had any issues with the chain coming off as I see you haven't got a guide on there

Riser bar aside (I personally have never liked them), that is a really nice build. Love the way the forks match the frame, and the tyres look ace.
