Local bike brand Soma is debuting their new touring frame and has asked Pedal Rev to build one up to display the versatility of the bike design. We are building this one into a rugged do-all adventure tourer/uber-commuter bike with nice parts from Soma, Nitto, Brooks, Rivendell, Continental and more.
This is a prototype frame so the final product may differ slightly.
here are a few sneek peeks:
The Saga has a nice tall re-inforced headtube for higher bar positioning without needing to use a stack of spacers.
Here is the fork with braze-ons for a front rack and fenders.
Nice new shiny Suzue High Flange Road hubs laced to Mavic 517′s for a light but strong touring worthy wheelset.
All the good stuff ready to be installed.
