Bicycle Time's Completed Review of the Soma Buena Vista

Karl of Bicycle Times posted a "first look" review on their website a few months ago. The final review is published in Bicycle Times #11. We would be lying if we weren't a little concerned since we couldn't size him for the frame since he's in Pittsburgh and he admitted he's never ridden a mixte.

PDF file of the article is in Product Reviews page of this blog.

Some pull quotes for those with short attention spans:
"From my first pedal strokes, I realized that this was one quick handling townie"

"Exhibited the classical "lively" feeling of a quality chromoly steel frame - a sweet blend of snappy acceleration and a comfortable resilience over the road. I felt that the mixte design offered some additional bump-absorbing vertical compliance, compared to double diamond frames."

"Felt...at home cruising the...sometimes unpavedd, rural roads on my favorite multi-hour recreational loop."
