    Finished my Soul Cycles Dillinger 5.0

    Couldn't find a dedicated soul cycles thread so figured I'd start my own. Just finished building this up and am pretty stoked with how it came together.
    Wanted to build this up for a commuter and general run-around-town bike. Will get another wheelset for some light trail duty as well, should be fun. Set up as a 1x10 for now, may go SS in time.

    Couple of notes for info:
    - I'm 6'0 with a 33-34 inseam, the 20" frame is OK but on the bigger side so if you're any smaller, go for 18" or the option for 18" long (longer headtube, would probably be the best fit for me but I bought used at a great price)
    - I'm running Crank Brothers Cobalt 3 wheels with a Whiskey carbon fork and rotor clearance is less than 1/8", I had to go from a Magura rotor to an Avid because the Magura is too thick! Not sure if the fork is the issue (it's freaking huge!!) or the wheels and rotor offset.
    - Selle Anatomica X saddle is great, their bar tape however is a pita to put on, I'm not great at it anyway but less so with stiff leather tape and not happy with how that turned out.
    - Jones bars are really great, beautifully made and I love the ergonomics and the different hand positions.

    On to the pics and build details:
