Pedal Revolution collaborated with Soma Fabrications and built up a few of their new 2010 frames into some gorgeous custom bikes. Soma plans to use them for their catalog and website so we got a generous creative license to have a little fun with these builds. They are all for sale in the shop.
First up. Clancy’s build up of the new 55cm Soma Rush track frame with some extra nice parts.
Cinelli Priest bars, Tange straight blade chrome fork, Gatorskin Hardshell tires.
New IRD Defiant Track Cranks.
Suzue Promax Disco hubset handbuilt to Sun M13 rims.
Cardiff saddle. Lugged Nitto setback seatpost.
Lugged Nitto stem.
Next is David’s build up of the 58cm Soma Stanyan. Tange steel road bike with chrome lugs at the headtube and fork crown.
A mix of 105, Chris King, Sugino Double crankset w/ TA Specialties rings, Thomson post and stem, Nitto OS heat-treated Handlebar, Suzue Classic Road hubs on Open Pro rims (decals removed).
Note the alternating Thomson silver/black colorways on the stem and post and new rising sun Soma headbadge.
This one is the 17″ Soma Groove hardtail mtn bike. I built it up with a nice mix of solid but cost-effective parts into a quick, light workhorse of a mtn bike.
Tange steel for a long lasting comfy ride. IRD suspension corrected rigid fork. Shimano Deore/SLX drivetrain.
Soma Odin bar. Classic Salsa stem.
Ken built up a 54cm Soma Smoothie ES. A very clean build with nice attention to detail.
Nitto stem and Handlebar.
Sugino Crankset and Tiagra Controls and derailleurs.
Nitto seatpost and Soma Hisou saddle.
