Layton came to us looking for his first bike he’s ever bought himself. After nearly 10 years on a Specialized steel frame that was way too big and ill fitting he was excited to work on buying something exceptional. After a few conversations and sizing period he decided on the Soma San Marcos for it’s comfortable geometry amd versatility. Those Rivendell lugs made a big impact too. We ended up with a beautiful bike, Shimano Tiagra, Mavic Open Pro, and a Brooks Swift.
