    Arent soma's bars modeled off of nitto bars? I would say they are similar to RB-021's but made out of a less expensive materials. They look like decent deep (ish) drop horns.

    I, too, think those are some deep as heck drops for bullhorns. Doesn't make them any less sexy, though.

    i can tell you that they come in 380mm, and that nittos can be hard to find that narrow. most are 400/420mm.

    Ode to the after work nap ( ride your bike instead)

    Ode to the nap
    The evil, evil nap
    It lures
    you succumb
    But only with good intent
    Shortly I will rise
    But you do not.
    Do not succumb
    To the evil, evil nap

    Doesn't Soma seem to be out-of-touch with the cycling world, is some way? All their products are like two beats off.

    +1 The Soma doublecross would make a great alternative to the Surly Crosscheck except for a "do it all frame" it is missing horizontal dropouts.
