Now the important stuff.
Before you ask, yes it'll have a threaded 1" headset, braze-ons for a Nitto Mini rack, 132.5mm rear hub spacing, canti brakes, proper fender facing eyelets (threaded of course), and will swallow 42mm tires with a full coverage fender. Since it's a low trail geometry it's optimized for use with a handlebar bag supported by a front rack. We used slightly sturdier fork blades and rear stays in case you want to load it down a bit, but main triangle uses skinny tubes for a more lively feel compared to the Saga. We should have our sample frame built up soon so you can get a better idea of how it will look as a complete bike.
Our projected MSRP is 499.99 for matching frame and fork set. If you're interested in getting one of the first batch have your local Soma dealer call in a pre order with Merry Sales (our distributor in SF) or call Mike Kone at Rene Herse/Boulder Bicycle (303) 284-9721. Boulder will be stocking a full size run. We don't have a fixed ETA yet, but we expect them to arrive in about 4-5 months.
