    my new 04 Soma Rush

    Ok, bike complete!

    Will post pics once I clean it after last weekends extensive riding

    Here's what I used:

    167,5mm Miche Primato cranks, Miche BB, Old Campy Chorus pedals with clips & straps. PRO straight carbon fork. Really pimpy Cinelli Grammo titanium stem, Tange headset, Nitto alu drops. Thomson seatpost, Fi:zik Poggio saddle. Wheelset Sun Venus, plain DT spokes. American Classics micro 68 hub in the front, Phil Wood double fixed rear. Purple anodized Tranz-X anti theft QR in the front for laughs. Gearing is 48:18 and my legs very very tired. My skidding skills suck...

    "awesome"

    very responsive and light

    I figured out how to skid properly today. The cheap Scwalbe Blizzard tyres are in for some serious burnin'

    Nice bike... Almost got one myself. Is the fork one of the Soma forks or is "PRO" the brand?

    it's a "Pro" brand, apparently some kind of Shimano subsidiary. Cheapo, too ( approx. 150 euros )

    After a week with straps I changed into eggbeaters, as I could not overrun my SPD reflex
