Soma Buena Vista Custom at Pedal Revolution

Here is another Pedal Revolution built beauty of a bike that went to a very happy customer. This is a Soma Buena Vista Mixte frame. A well designed steel step-through frame designed to do everything from everyday commuting to loaded touring adventures. This one was custom built to do it all.

The customer chose a lovely custom blue paint with added sparkle that makes it shine. It was built up as a 650b wheeled on-road, off-road capable touring bike. The 650b wheel size was chosen to allow for larger tires and still leave room for an eventual fender install. A great mix of Sugino, Shimano, Brooks, and Nitto round out the build.

Surly Crosscheck Custom at Pedal Revolution

Fun with Surly bikes is the theme around Pedal Revolution these days. This Surly Cross-check left the shop with a very happy customer last week to be her one bike to do it all. She added a women’s B17 Brooks saddle, some comfy 35mm wide Panaracer Pasela tires for smooth rolling, Shimano SPD pedals, and a handy bike pump to round it out.

Enjoy your bike!

Surly Long Haul Trucker Custom at Pedal Revolution

A long time Pedal Revolution customer brought in his well-loved Surly Long Haul Trucker for some modifications last week. He does some touring on it but it’s daily role is as his do-all commuter, grocery-getter,everyday fun-seeker. He wanted an upright riding position so we swapped his drop bars for A Nitto Albatross bar to get him up nice and high. This is one of my favorite ways to modify a touring style bike and make it more everyday-friendly. The Albatross bar is wide and strong with just enough sweep.

All of Pedal Revolution’s Surly Long Haul Truckers are still on sale. Come in a snap one up before the sale ends!

MSRP Regular price – $1,350  Sale price – $1,200 !! on in store bikes.
