After some serious thought I decided that my first build of the year would be modern - completely modern :shock:

After the rave write up the Soul's have gotten over the years I fancied trying one.

The build was simple - as much British stuff as possible (designed and or made).

The outcome.....a work in progress but so far I am very happy.

Could do with a Hope stem, I need to rebuild my original V12 pedals and need a lighter, less sticky front tyre :oops:

Cheers Trevor.

Might end up looking more like yours if I can get a decent bolt through fork at a reasonable price :D

The only thing I'd change is the rear mech as you really don't need such a long cage on a 1x9. But that's me being really picky.

Nice build though. I quite fancy one of these myself. I was very tempted by one of the 2009 ones in 'Expresso'.
