Soul Wheel Owners... Post your pics

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

Soul Wheel Owners... Post your pics

Hey guys,

I recently put my name on the soul wait list and I thought it'd be nice to have an "official" compilation of all soul wheel owners.

I still have atleast a 3 week wait before my wheels are ready.

I'm considering them for my CAAD9-?.
Which bike are the Souls going on?
The Madone (and, what model Madone is it?)?
If you mount them on the CAAD,
let me know how they work out.

Bobsled.-
I ended up ordering 2.0s. I need a lightweight set for the deathride (www.deathride.com). I'm far from a decent climber so i figured every bit helps. Plus at 25mm deep, i don't feel like i will lose a lot of aero during everyday rides- not that at my level i would feel the difference anyway.

I may order some deeper rims later on and rotate the 2.0s to the Caad 9.5 and give the ROLs to the GF, whose 4.5 could stand to shed several hundred grams.

2nd gen.-
The wheels are for the Madone. It's a 6.2 series frame with 7800 dura ace components. I'm currently at 15.99 (with the ROLs) without water bottle cages and tool bag. I hope to be in the 15.5lbs rage after with the new wheels arrive. That should put an end to having the bike finalized and just enjoy riding it.

The Caad 9.5 has a set of ROL SL wheels. They are very nice wheels (granted heavier but deeper 30mms). I like the ROls quite a bit, but since the madone will be used mostly for climbing, i figure I should set it up with decent (lighter) climbing wheelset. I'm a whuzz when it comes down to descending and sharp turns, so i'm shying away from carbon for the time being. The last thing i want is to overheat carbon clinchers at 40mph +.

i ordered two sets - S2.0 and C5.0.

EDIT - got an update today. about 8 days passed, just getting to my name on the list, and the carbon rims haven't arrived yet.

You punk are delaying my order ... grrr =P jk
I believe I'm right after your 2.0 order.
Tell Sean to send my 2.0s first since your carbon rims are not yet there!! =P.. No point in building your 2.0s just to have them sitting there. I could certainly put those to good use =)

Well couldn't wait to see what my bike would look like, so through the magic of PhotoShop:

Original:


With white S2.0SLs


and with black S2.0SLs


I chose the black ones.

Man if there was a way to get things faster id do it. In fact I just emailed Sean and offered him an extra $50 if he delays your rims further so he can concentrate on mine.

It was like 50 degrees here today and all I have is a trainer wheel!

thanks for posting this pic. i'm picking up my shiny, new, white Onix on friday and was wondering what it would look like with those white rims. hot.

but i have a question for you Soul owners... i'm new to this forum and only first heard of Soul and Psimet and Williams last week. before that, i had been cruising around ebay toying with the idea of upgrading from Ksyrium Elite to SL or R-SYS. i've also checked out Reynolds and Easton. going back to Soul and Psimet... just quicky looking at the weight specs, i don't see an advantage for these wheelsets. so i'm wondering what's the attraction to these wheelsmiths. is it the something-different factor or the support-the-little-guy factor? if so, i can relate, especially to the former. but is there a performance benefit that escapes me? i'm admittedly/clearly not that sophisticated in my knowledge of wheelsets.
