The Soma Double Cross and the Surly Cross Check have a few differences worth noting;
Surly sells either framesets or complete bikes and has a large dealer network.
Soma sells frames: forks and other items are sold separately.
The Soma has a better grade of tubing.
Soma has a taller head-tube
Soma has a disc brake & cantilever brake model.
Soma has a vertical rear drop-out, Surly has horizontal drop-outs.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
