Here is a sneak preview of some Viva cloth tape we just got. It is made in Japan and comes with nice locking bar plugs (in black or white, depending on the color of tape). Colors, from left to right, top to bottom: Black, Purple, Marine Blue, Sky Blue, Red (it is sort of "strawberry" colored in person), Olive, Brown, White, Silver, Beige, and Yellow. We should have them up in the Soma Shop by Friday.

Also fresh in are the Versa 8 shifters, which work with Shimano Nexus and Alfine 8-speed internally geared hubs. This is a nice way to get the benefits of integrated brake/shifters with the durability and clean lines of internally geared setups.
