I feel like Thomson products are very prone to cracking.


Too bad I love them.

Yup. I have won two Thomson certificates from mtb races, redeemable for ANY Thomson product. I chose Masterpiece 27.2 black seatposts both times and promptly sold them on fleabay. No thanks.

This article from Sheldon comes to mind:

Splendid transformation! Are those criterium handlebars, perchance? Could just use some classier toe straps if you don't end up putting the Looks back on. Funny that the PO changed the stem out but couldn't be bothered with putting platform pedals on.

Thanks. :)

The bars are Cinelli 56-40, I think they were aimed at criterium riders when they were new. Yeah, it's weird all right. I kind of think the bike was sold to a larger person who was probably looking for a hybrid or something. I could upgrade the clips / straps, but really want to go clipless, especially since I have the original pedals and they're in great shape.

for those who were wondering why i sold my yeti arcx, this is why

hairnet 12-11-13 06:29 PM

Very cool. I have been thinking about a Soma for a while now and the Rando looks great but I'm not sure I want 650b(nothing wrong with it though)

Mumonkan 12-11-13 07:42 PM

650b = azn 700c

jdgesus 12-12-13 11:30 AM

650b = 26r for me :(

jdgesus 12-12-13 11:31 AM

really tho, the only reason to run 650b is so you can run chubby road tires without all the spinning rotation of 29r slicks, or the not enough momentum from 26r slicks

AND ALSO RANDO IS THE NEW FIXEI

But I actually did a rando and my road bike is not suited for it. I was looking at Soma because I can get one at wholesale cost. Since I don't have a fixay I need a rando bike. concrete reasoning.

yummygooey 12-12-13 12:21 PM

if you can get it at wholesale, the soma GR is pretty awesome compared to what else is available right now. anything else costs over twice as much.

sheepdog84 12-12-13 02:20 PM

such rando

wow
