Soma Smoothie SS: Our Stainless Steel Road Frame All Built Up
The Smoothie SS uses the same semi-compact geometry of our CrMo Smoothie, but is fillet brazed with double butted thin wall KVA MS2 stainless steel. We opted for a nice hand polish over the cheaper Scotch Brit finish. Sold as frame alone. Component highlights: SRAM Force crank (Rival Apex mix of other drivetrain stuff) Zipp post, Vredestine tires, Ritchey fork, Look pedals, zinc-plated IRD Techno-Glide headset. Bar, stem, tape and saddle are ours. Special thanks to Willliams for loaning us the Carbon System 38 wheels. Also thanks to American Cyclery for building it up quick, so we could display it at the first leg of the Tour of California.
