Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I hope that isn't black duct tape holding that Yellow KHS frame together.

To me, swapping out the silver crank and brakes to something black/dark silver would make that even hotter. But still a hot looking ride.

Tmonk, that Soul has so many great parts choices, I'll say hot. The gloss 3t fork and Thomson parts look a little off on the matte frame but the Hollogram cranks and Traditional drop bars make up for the sins I think.

Guru gets a NOT from me. Weird looking frame and the crank clashes badly with the rest of the bike.

thx.

as for the saddle/bar drop it's not as much as it looks like; the sloping top tube compact frame design plays with your eyes a little bit. It actually has the same saddle to bar drop as the black Soul and less than the yellow KHS fixed gear.

no the khs isn't held together with the bar tape. the thing is beat up to hell but it has plenty of life left and usually gets ridden once/week to work (38 mi) at a nice high tempo pace.

also if that cat was indeed purchased at trader joes than i would return it when my gf wasn't looking

Yes. Small decal C50 tubies. Front needed some truing after a few hudred miles other than that light and smooth.

no.

its a massive dent.

the frame is aligned, and it's obviously steel so the mechanical integrity is not comprised.

it's been that way for about four years.
