Here it is at last, a 2010 Cotic Soul in Orange, size Medium.

Reynolds 853 Main frame,
Rockshox Reba 100mm Fork,
DT Swiss Rims on XT hubs,
Hope Mini Mono Brakes,
Sram X9 Shifters and R/Mech,
XT F/Mech
XT Chainset
SRAM Cassette and Chain,
Hope skewers and Seat QR,
Hope S/Steel Bottom Bracket,
Chris King Headset,
Thomson Post and 80mm Stem,
Now with Easton EA70 riser bar,
SDG Titanium Railed Saddle,
XT SPD's
ODI Grips.

Not had a chance to ride it yet but looks like it will ride well. Slight concern with quality of paint already as there is signs of flaking paint around where Bottom Bracket was fitted and when I unscrewed the bottle holder bolts but time will tell!

A few pictures below but just before it got dark so not the best, will take some more in the light tomorrow.

Let me know what you think!

looks good. iv got a 08 simple in black and the paint is really tough on that, certainly not brittle as yours sounds?

Wouldn't worry about the paint, thrash it then get it powdercoated

Yes Carl, it probably has! Does look nice in the Orange I must say, just need to ride it now, bloody weather.

I will mention the paint to Cy to see if anyone else has had any issues.

Yes the fork is fine, very plush and alot cheaper than Fox! Tbh I think that 100mm is best suited to this frame possibly 120mm. Check out the review of the Soul in the latest edition of What Mountain Bike magazine, they state that a 140mm fork would make the head angle very slack meaning you would have to run a fair bit of sag. Although it does cater for a 140mm fork now I would stick with 100mm or 120mm.
