Sean Walling shows us what a stock custom bike looks like.
If you’ve ever lusted after a hand built bike but couldn’t afford it, this might be the bike for you. Soulcraft has taken out the custom sizing part of custom bikes and creates a more affordable option. If you fit one of the 3 stock sizes of the Tradesman, you could save yourself some money with this bike.
The quality of the Tradesman is the same as Soulcraft’s full custom offerings, but somethings were simplified to keep the customers cost down:
-wishbone rear end (allows all 3 sizes to use the same part)
-sizes limited to 3
-no diamond detail on braze-ons
-no stamped head badge
-1 color per production run
For the complete bike shown here with Fox Fork, XT group, WTB wheels, tires, grips and saddle, Thomson stem and seat post the price is $4250 – Made in the USA.
Soulcraft Bikes is based out of Petaluma, CA.
