We are currently testriding this T-Rail seatpost/saddle system by KORE. The minimalist design suits our own "reduce to the max" principle of construction

and is exceptionally easy and quick to set up and adjust. The seatpost comes with an adapter for saddles with standard 7mm rails. Read about our riding experiences with this system here soon!

The temporarily last Funtail 41.5 was shipped yesterday, with greetings to Berlin!!

2Soulscycles is dead.  

Long live

2Soulscycles GmbH & Co. KG !!!

(something like i think?)
Together with two enthusiastic customers then friend and now friend and partners (thumbs up for those two daredevils :)))we`ve decided to push 2Soulscycles to a higher level and put together small but exclusive selection of HT frames, that will be also available through dealers. We`re not at the end of our journey through the bueraucratic jungle yet, but we`ve got our entry in the trade register today and now it`s official: pop the corks!!

WILDfortyONE.five 69er  


ocean of options...


preparing the photoshooting for our new company website we got this beautyful fork.

It will be used with a ceramic-coated Funtail 41.5. stay tuned.


In cooperation with the renowned highend-steel producerReynolds (853 tubing) we`re working amongst other custom tubes on a new MTB-seattube. Triggered by the new possibility of mounting the front dereilleur on a small braze on instead of the usual clamp, we wanted a tube that could directly take a 30.9mm seatpost. This way we can save not only the front dereilleur clamp, but also seattubeshims or similar solutions commonly used in steelframes.
Our new 29er will feature this new tube as the first frame, but this tube - contrary to our TT+DT - is nonexclusive and will be available for framebuilders soon.

Sun Ringlé CHARGER Pro 29er  


29er prototyp build-up draws near and this Sun Ringlé CHARGER Pro 29er is the wheelset of chioce. It was quite difficult to get it, as there`s currently no german distributor of Sun Ringlé, but thanks to Clayton and Sean ...

Based on Stan`s Tubeless System, with stiff cross-section of the rim and straightpull hubs it has all the features we want in a wheelset. Also nice are its light weight and the fact that it comes with adapters for all diameter and standards you can think of: VR- 20mm,15mm, 9mm; HR- 142mm X12, 135x12mm, 9mm)

Looking forward to ride them!

mhmmmm.... Milka Lila  


Old frame of the very first series with open dropouts, refurbished for the third time now.

Apart from a little dent on one of the seatstays,the frame is still perfectly in shape after a couple of 1000 offroad klmtrs and starts into its next spring with fresh color (RAL 4005 superflat).
Pictures of the completed bike soon.

x-12 or not x-12  


The samples arrived yesterday, now their journey leads them to Tacherting, qualitycontrol to see wether they meet the requirements to be "x-12".

They will be available in about 4-5 weeks. Check back!

29inch revised: sequel  


This is the detailed geometry and technical specifications for all sizes of the 29er.

Details are subject to change.

29er revised  


2008 we were asked by a local bikeshop to develop a Crosscountry oriented 29er steelframe concept.

The result

was a success and has been heavily used and abused till this day. Due to the economic crisis the prototype has not made it into production and the project was cancelled June 2010. With that the promise not to build a 2Souls 29er frame lost its meaning and
fastforward 6month, here we are with our own 29er frame concept.
This is a little sneakpeak of an older (workinprogress) CAD

From the beginning it was clear a 2Soulscycles frame would never be a lightweight/cc frame. Basically, we wanted a 29er version of our 41.5 funtail, for Allmountain, HXC, Enduro riding : combining the lively handling of a 26" bike with the advantages of the big 29er wheels.

For the past few years lots of new standards concerning headtubes, steerertubes and front derailleurs appeared on the market. As we tried to achieve high crosscompatibility we`ve chosen the relatively new 44mm id headtube standard so one can use 1 1/8", tapered and even 1.5" forks; and Shimano FD front derailleur brazeon to get the chainstaylength as short as possible with biiiig tires.

The geometry data of the preproduction sample size L (Reba 100mm, CaneCreek 110 Headset, without sag):

Steering Angle 69,5°
Seattube Angle ~72,5°
Toptube length horizontal 620mm
reach 419,6mm
stack 636,1mm
BB drop 56mm
Chainstay length horizontal 416-430mm
Headtube 115mm
Seattube length c-t 470mm (c-c 325mm)

44id Head Tube
Shimano FD Derailleur
EVO2 slider Dropouts (Syntace X-12 version to follow soon!)
allowed for 140mm+ Suspensionforks!!
Tire Size 2.4+?!

2Souls reloaded  


For almost 2 years we`ve neglected 2Soulscycles and this website almost completely, due to the work of organising EHBE.
From now on, we will change this again :)

El Jefe is nearly busting of ideas, and a whole list of new products is ready and waiting to be launched. We will let you know more about this in the next posts.

We`re also working on a new website with some more possibilities, bicycle configuration etc. This is a first impression -

because it will still take a little time ;)

Only this much up front: our growing distrust of the press/media combined with our happiness about the regular, often extensive and detailled feedback we get from many 2Souls riders, has led to the menu item riders`logs in place of the common press, and we invite you to share your experience with our bicycles (and us ;7) there soon. cu!
