So I've been looking at getting a new frameset. My current frameset is an IRO angus. It's just not aggressive enough for me.
So I've been looking at getting a Soma Rush. Because it does not come with a fork, I could possibly get something other than the Soma fork. Here's what I've found:
Soma Track fork: 38mm rake.....Tange Infinity tubing
Tange Prestige Fixie fork: 38mm rake.....Tange Prestige tubing
Suggest something better if you know something. But I am afraid of changing the geometry too much with a fork with different rake.
I've read that the infinity tubing is more like Reynolds 520 (double butted CrMo), and Prestige is more like somewhere inbetween Reynolds 631 and 853.
They are close to the same price. So would I just be best suited to go with the Tange Prestige fork? Or is there some reason that Soma went with Infinity tubing (softer front end for plushness perhaps)?
Also.....I know the Rush is not true track geometry with a fork with 38mm rake. But can anyone tell me how much more agile, responsive, and stiff the Rush will be than the IRO angus? Also, I'm weary of the fact that the "rear end" is just double butted CrMo. Anyone want to comment on this?
