Nice build the way you stuck to 2 colours, just a little concerned with regards to the single on the front instead of a double on a long travel steel hardtail? any reason for that?
Also how does it feel with only running 115mm up front?

So I think I have settled on the build for my Soul :roll:

Current set up is 2x9 with 100/140mm fork up front.

The bike is certainly versatile - this is about its 4th build :oops:

Quick pic from playing in the snow earlier.

Nice one, the Magura forks look the business.
Maybe balance the colour scheme with a white sadlle?

Enjoy!!

If it has a nice splash of white why not.

Idea is to link the white of the forks via the downtube decal to the saddle.

enjoy!!

Yes, I think this is the best version/evolution yet.

A Charge spoon saddle in white would finish it off nicely

Cannot commit to a whole white saddle - just dosen't make sense on a MTB.

My cow print will go on though :oops:

Agree its the best version yet. And it is still a bike I'd love to own one day.
