    i think you mean nicolai, their frame cost's much more, and came out a bit earlier, so I don't think it quite qualify's as a cheap knockoff.

    I see it like being a watch.. you can great watch like Tag for 1k or get a Rolex for 10k.. both damn fine pieces with excellent craftsmanship. one costs more because of the name it carries :thumb:

    :stupid:
    I've taken my 'Titan' to Diablo, Big Bear, Mammoth and North*, not to mention a ton of local SoCal trails... and it's strong!!! I'm 6'1" and 200lbs, and that bike has held up to everything I've thrown at it.

    The Sluggo's geometry is more like the SL (Seth Lolli) version of the Imperial ...

    I can't wait to get mine!!!! :love:

    Did I miss something. When did he say it was a piece of crap? He said ''mucho cheapo'', meaning that it is less expensive than the Nicolai.

    They should be out shortly, there have been some delays with paint, and Chad wants to make sure everything is perfect before releasing something. He doesnt want it to be mediocore. Also the Sluggo is diff. from both Nicolai and Evil in the fact that it will have i.s.c.g. tabs and you will be able to run a regular axle or a 12 mm. plus the seat tube geometry isnt all crazy laid back putting mucho strain on the seat tube and post.

    You've never heard someone call something 'cheapo' as a negative?

    However I do think he just meant less expensive (coughreasonablypricedcough)...

    sorry maybe is my ingles that Suck,,because it does..

    to me when somebody say..'Cheappo" i imagine,,
    "Chessy", half finish, walmart, half ass, mediocre, Mc Donalds, many corners cut,, you know all this things.

    I have a nicolai and for sure exudes quality in every detail, the Titan specially if you consider the price is a incredible bike, somehow I got confusee and i interpretate the soul cycles, was like a "Huffy"

    mebad.. :nuts:

    i've seen pictures of the frame and it looks amazing, it's not a imperial knock off the only thing in common is the twin top tubes. I wish i had a need for a FR/DH hardtail.

    The pictures remind me of the imp, but the sluggo is still most definately a soul cycle. It sports the signature downtube found on the Titan. Its going to be a super ride

    i love the cock bike.

    i want to like the look of the soul cycles, but i hate the taper on the down tube.

    as opposed to having a tapir on the down tube -

    What? The PDF shows a cross section 1/2 way down the downtube that is oval, I thought the Titan's had some squared off downtube?
