    Just wanted to drop a line here about SOULCRAFT… I currently own 2… A SS 29er…And a Royale road bike.. I owned an option 3 a few years back… So 3 total… On every bike the fit and finish is top notch… There is an something about them that seem plain and boring… But on group rides people walk past the titanium and carbon and ask me about my bike.. And they start pointing out the little things that you don’t see in the first 10 seconds. I have heard Sean say he makes “tools that are beautiful.” So they are pretty far from plain and boring!! Go to the Facebook Soulcraft fan page… there are photos of them posted… Feel free to ask me questions @ (oh yeah…. this should be said… I did NOT get the home boy hook-up to say positive things… I paid full boat… have never met sean.. but over the years since 2003.. spoke to him a bunch… and he know me as mike from wisconsin..) I plan on getting a SS DIRTBOMB in the near future…

    I also have two bikes built by Sean at Soulcraft. He built my SS 29er close to 7 years ago, and my cross bike about 6 years ago now. Both bikes ride and fit better than any bike ive ever rode. I also love the straight foreward beauty of Seans bikes. Whenever people who know bikes see one of my Soulcrafts they always comment on how nice it is.
    Also i just want to say how happy i am that people like Sean are still out there building handmade custom frames for people like myself.

    Bottom line is Soulcraft really does make “Top Notch” frames. You just need to ride one to know for yourself.
