Danny's Smoothie SS

Just finished my new baby!  Loving the SS feel.  Steel is indeed real. 

Built by Ikon Cycles Sacramento.

Just wanted to share.  My first Soma, won't be my last.

Ben's Double Cross Disc Build

Dear Soma,

I just want to let you know how much I love the new Double Cross Disc I just built up. It's simply great. The frame alone is so beautiful that I'd carry it around just as a fashion accessory if I didn't prefer to ride it instead. It's making living in central Nevada much more enjoyable. Below are a couple pictures of the bike. I don't think I've ever ridden a better bicycle.

Thanks for the nice feedback and the great pics Ben!

I'm not normally very excited about bike videos I find online, but this one is a real winner.

650b Buena Vista Build from 21st Ave. in PDX

Heya Soma folks,

Just wanted to share this Buena Vista we built for someone last month.  She wanted the smoothest thing around for a future kid-carrier and I think we got there with a 650b Buena Vista. 1x10, Brooks, PDW, Velo Orange yada yada we think it looks real nice. Hope you do to.

Best of Everything,
Nick Wood

Thanks Nick! Looks like comfy ride!

Sun XCD cranks with TA chainrings

I wasn't sure if this would work, but it looks like the folks at I's in Japan have tested it.

Apparently you can run classic TA chainrings on the new SUN XCD Exceed crank arms.
