2011 Soho DLX Arrived
I picked up my 2011 Soho DLX the other day. I have only gotten to ride it once so far, but it seemed a very nice ride. The disc brake seems to work fine, it had plenty of stopping power. It is very quiet and very smooth ride so far. I am not used to sitting so upright but it is a position I am sure I can get used to. Before I received it, I wasn't sure what to think of the hardcase 2 tires, but they look pretty nice. They have more tread than I would have thought and they seem to handle well. The saddle seems like a good compromise between the huge over-stuffed cruiser saddles and the very narrow racing type saddles.
It looks like it is time to give the old Trek 7600 multitrack a rest for now. It is a great bike, but it was developing some issues in the rear hub. I am very fond of it though, I may fix it back up for a future beater ride.
