If you have one of these how do you like it? It replaces the Dambala I believe. There are no reviews on this frame so I thought I'd throw the question out there. I'm contemplating buying one this spring.

the Soukri is the same exact geometry as the Dambala, just built a little more heavy-duty so it can be rated for 120mm forks max instead of 100mm max

Had one, great ride, everything else was crap. Drop-outs are a joke, very very flexy, possibly the worst paint I have encountered. Look at Vassago, Singular, and Niner for great steel.

experience. No problems with the drop outs, paint looks great and has been durable and the 19in frame I ride is not what I would call flexy. Fwiw, I am 6ft 2in and 245-260 lbs depending on the time of year. Rides nice too.

If you wouldn't mind sharing...how do you have it setup? I'm 6'2" as well so I'd be looking to pick up the 19 inch frame and I weigh 200-210 so if you don't have problems with it flexing I doubt I would.....I appreciate your feedback! :thumbsup:

Hey E-Double, I'm interested in this frame, too. But I'm slightly put off by the sliding dropouts, as I want to run it geared. Any problems with it in that application? The whole sliding dropout thing is new to me...And I want a quick-handling frame for East Coast riding (almost to the point of being "nervous"). Will the Soukri fit the bill?

FWIW, I plan to use a 100mm fork, so I suppose "nervous" is a relative term.....But I still want crisp handling.....(and no rear dropout drama. (?))

damn man, I am so sorry...

for not responding to this 6 MONTHS AGO. I did not see it until now and even then it was posted on another website. I think the Soukri has excellent handling for east coast trails. Very quick and nimble. Many bikes do not ride well here in my opinion because our trails are tighter and twistier that just about anywhere I have ridden.
