Soul Cycles Dillinger: Done!

Mountain Biking

Besides riding a bike, I find that building a bike is almost as satisfying. I have finally finished assembling the Soul Cycles Dillinger, it is quite a nice looking bike!


The bike is greener than my grass!

I rode the bike around my neighborhood, the bike feels really smooth. I will be reporting on the performance of the Soul Cycles Frame, the Serfas Tegu Saddle, the powercordz and the Geax Saguaro tires. Stay tuned for the update!

  1. N-I-C-E Moe!

    Will you be using the Racers Tape on the Soul Cycle to protect the downtube, top tube and chain stays? I’d like to know the ease of application and how well it protects in real trail conditions.

    As usual, looking forward for the reviews!

  2. If you look closely, you can barely see the tape on the first picture next to the badge. The tape is very easy to apply and I used it “generously” on areas that may get cable rub and little nicks.

  3. Dt, I would imagine that a SS bike wouldn’t need a chain stay protector since the chain shouldn’t be slapping around.

    I do agree with you DT, thing looks schweet…

  4. Calling out The Moe – Single Speed ride this Saturday at Marshall Canyon, I believe Jer sent an e-mail.

    Nice looking bike but….kind of looks like a dirt jump bike with the seat that low.

  5. RL,

    I wouldn’t say you need some coverage on the chainstays for the chain slap–its for when you say, change tires and the chain was left hanging/banging against the chainstay or just general protection when handling the bike i.e. leaning against something, or putting it on the rack etc…

    Moe,

    I totally missed that! If you didnt point it out I wouldnt have noticed it. Headbadges always capture the eye first! I’m glad that its almost invisible–that convinces me to wrap the frame on my bike (and fingers crossed) on my next bike.
