Thanks. I'm putting the Look pedals back on once I get some new shooz, but at least I can ride it now.
I feel like Thomson products are very prone to cracking.
Too bad I love them.
^ Want. Same year as my club fuji :D
This article from Sheldon comes to mind:
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.
new bike day
for those who were wondering why i sold my yeti arcx, this is why
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)
650b = azn 700c
650b = 26r for me :(
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
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.
