Very highly spec’d COTIC SOUL 853 medium 26er in the gorgeous duck egg blue colourway. Perfect condition. It’s the last model SOUL 26 with the tapered headset.

Will sell as complete bike, as rolling chassis with TrueWheels-built DARTMOOR & HOPE wheels, frame and forks or frame only - just ask, flexible on this.

As complete bike currently includes

Dartmoor 28 internal green rims on Hope hubs handbuilt by TrueWheels of Brighton - only a few miles, 400gbp wheelset
Schwalbe Hans Dampf new
Zee rear mech
Hope BB
Deore 170 cranks
Hope headset
Specialised wide bars and stem
Shimano brakeset
Revelation 130 forks with working remote lockout
Crank Bros Cobalt 3 seatpost

One of my all-time favourite rides - I’m very reluctant to part with this but the workshop is just too full of bikes at present and needs a thin-out...
Text 0770 250 5256 for any further details etc
Can post or pickup near Cambridge possible

Unusual question but how long steerer is needed for this frame ?

(I have another fork I want to put on it)

Also as it's currently setup, what side of rider would you say it suits ?

Gawd yes sorry about price. Now sold I think. What side is best - right for me.
Seriously though...which size is best? I had a COTIC small Soul and found it too small - I am 5-7 with 31 inseam. Now that should be smack in the range for the small according to the contemporary sizing table from Cy T. But I think he undersized that chart. This is the medium (17.5) and fits me brilliantly, with an inline post and 35mm stem.
