    I'm a soooouuuul man

    My new Soul Cycles Dillinger frame and fork arrived last night and a bike was born. The Bike is a mash up of some old parts: hubs, saddle, brake, tires, stem and new parts: crank, rims, spokes, bars (the 17 deg), grips, and headset. I personally liked that the root beer was a deeper brown... it has body. enjoy. 22.8lbs

    Sweet ride. I like the white spokes. How much sweep on the salsa bars? Also doesn't look like much tyre clearance at the BB yoke.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    Dig the spokes (& the brown sparkly) What spokes are those & any additional weight over non-white spokes?

    The spokes are dt competition. I don't have exact weights but I would assume they are slightly heavier

    The bar is a 17 deg 710mm bar and the frame has as much clearance as I could hope for. I am running a Racing Ralph 2.4 on a Stans Flow... wide rim wider tire.

    I didn't even notice it was fixed!
    now i like it. the white spokes are actually cool.
    I think you should have got the elixir cr but that is still gonna be sick.
    cool bars, im gonna try the less sweepy version.
    no chain no gain.

    that looks REALLY sweet! I think the only thing that I would change would be the bars and seatpost to help smooth things out a touch. Good job!

    I thought you just got an Erickson? Are you Mr. moneybags or something?

    I got an Eriksen recently, yes. I just have a passion for cycling and don't spend much money other than on bikes and components.

    you need to have a few kids, that will put a stranglehold on that passion.
