Greetings! Here is a photo of my well-ridden Smoothie (48cm) build right after dipping the front tire in the waters of the Mississippi River at the finish of RAGBRAI 2013 (Council Bluffs IA to Fort Madison IA--450 miles).
The bike performed beautifully, especially on hills, and lived up to its name. Only issue was a destroyed side wall on the rear tire, requiring a mid-Iowa replacement. Build includes: SOMA matching lugged steel fork; SOMA Hwy One bars; Velo Orange Grand Cru polished headset; NOS Ultegra 6500 9-speed triple components; Nitto stem and seat post; Fizik Alliante saddle; H+Son Archetype rims laced to Ultegra 6500 hubs. I can't wait to see the Grand Randonneur frame!
