I posted here a while ago about getting a Soma Rush. Although I still want one badly, I might not be able to swing it financially.
Is the Pake that bad? I have a conversion right now with some sweet Cinelli bars and a Vuelta wheel set (those are really the only honorable mentions) but my bike seems heavy as ****. I rode my friend's Pista around and it was so much lighter and easier.
Basically, I want my bicycle lighter. Do you think if I have to go with a Pake it'll make much of a difference, or should I just tough it out and get the Soma?
My gear ratio is 42/18, but I live in San Diego (hills galore, it sucks.)
Lemme know what you think.
