Itís easy to get way too "wordy" about the process of getting a Soulcraft frame. What weíve learned over the years is that rather than try to go overboard with descriptions of every little step, we should just say itís a pretty straightforward process; You place an order with a non-refundable deposit, send me a fit sheet, I call you for an interview, I send you a drawing, we agree on the design, thereís a black hole of time and space where nothing happens with your frame because Iím finishing other frames, then I build yours. Usually takes about 3 to 6 months but check the Current Lead Time section on the Frames page.
Weíre not trying to create an "experience", so to speak, where we try to impress you with how many times we can e-mail or call you with updates on the progress of your frame, we just want to build you a great bike that makes you stoked to ride it. We will say that each and every customer that chooses Soulcraft gets friendly service and we make sure youíre completely satisfied with your bike. The trade off is that sometimes we have to choose between being timely with our e-mails and phone calls or working on getting frames out the door. Itís a chronically frustrating situation for me because I really want to go over the top with service, but there arenít enough hours in my day and Iíd rather use that time to build more frames for more happy customers. What Iím trying to say is, weíve always provided great service. Just ask our customers. But sometimes Iím hard to get a hold of. Donít let it freak you out. Just know that if I donít respond right away, it doesnít mean that nothing is happening in the shop. Quite the opposite; it means I didnít answer the phone or e-mail because Iím busy in the shop, which means everyone is that much closer to getting their frame.
