Soma Dressed in Black

Jun 08

Blake’s idea was simple.  Build a bike for commuting that could also explore dirt roads and would still be great on long rides.  It needed to be comfortable and well suited to a beginner.  With about $2500 here’s what we were able to do for him.

The Soma Double Cross disc dressed in black.

Soma Double cross disc frame

Shimano 105 11 speed drive train (50/34 crank, 11-32 cassette for tons of gear range)

HED Belgium disc wheels custom built by Jinji pro wheel builders

TRP Spyre disc brakes

Continental Speed tires

Brooks Cambium saddle
