Mountain Biking - New Soma Analog build
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Here's a pic of a new Soma Analog I built for use at Ray's Mtn. Bike Park. It's a single speed with Kenda K-Rad's for park riding. Really like Soma's bikes!

Nice, keep her clean!
Took it to Ray's today over lunch, and it's a nice ride! Waiting a few months until the weather warms up, and then would like to try it on the local trails. Never rode a SS on the dirt, only my Santa Cruz Superlight and an old Fisher Tassajara.

Cool! First Analog I've seen besides mine.
Glynis, would love to see a pic of your Analog! They really are pretty bikes. Love the Tange dropouts

Only have these pictures from the past Fall season. Thinking I'll cut down the steerer tube a bit more, get new brakes and maybe a squishy fork. Maybe. I am liking rigid for the time being.
Funny how different our bikes look for having the same frame.
Nice ride! Except for the squishy front end, they don't look that different (yes, we used different components). My build was a 19" Soma frame, SunRingle' Charger wheels, Manitou Marvel Pro 100mm fork, Answer bars and stem, Hayes Stroker Trail brakes, Truvativ Stylo 1.1 crank and BB, KMC chain, Surly cog and spacer kit, Truvativ seatpost and WTB saddle and a bit of Framesaver in the frame before building.
Enjoy your Analog!

BUMP!!! I rode at Ray's over the weekend, and was initially on my Soma Groove, but on our first day I bent my cranks.... Ended up renting a Trek Mullet the next couple days and LOVED it... How is your Analog holding up?
