    I like the sounds of that.
    On another point considering epic is seemingly building from the ground up and not salvaging (obvious w/ him not having another fixie for so long since garagegate), his already heeding this.

    You've guessed that right. I've got my road bike in the mean time to get me around and with as poor as I am, the rush is going to be an extremely slow build. I want to go straight for high quality on it so I'm not going to waste money on cheap stuff just to get it rideable.

    Also dropping off some random information here in case someone in the future looks for it. I never saw this anywhere else.

    Weight of Soma lugged track fork (threadless, uncut 30mm steer tube) is 929.5 grams / 2 lbs.
    Weight of 57 CM Soma Rush frame (totally bare, no fork) is 2086 grams / 4.6 lbs.

    Hi all, I'm ready to pull the trigger on a Rush. Currently riding a 1/8 inch Scrambler when the streets are clear of ice and snow. The Scrambler is a touch too small. Will go 57cm and theadless fork. Will the Surly tuggnut work on the Rush?

    I'm really liking the F75, the only thing thats bugging me is that I can pick up a Langster Pro Frameset for only $150 more.

    I do see the value in something like a Rum Runner though.

    Just a heads up for anybody thinking about building a French 75 frame. No, they will not fit the Sram omnium cranks. Sorry, it wasn't designed around a 2 piece track crank. And seriously, why would you even want to run those? They have ****ty clearance, you can't adjust the chain line, and they're just plain ugly. Real track cranks use square taper bbs for a reason. If you want to blow your wad on some expensive cranks get Sugino 75s or Phil Woods. That is all.

    I completely neglect my Rush, feels bad. I haven't touched the open bearing headset since it was installed. The original chain is probably stretched out its mind +5500mi in. The chainring probably isn't in the greatest shape either and that's not knowing how many miles it had before I bought it used. The wheelset hasn't been touched by a spoke wrench since being shipped out from velomine +5000mi ago. One of the j-bends on the rear wheel broke ~1800mi ago and all I did was duck tape it. I'm pretty sure the seatpost is stuck because I had problems with it sliding down so instead of grease I used toothpaste. #idgaf

    nice build, looking forward to finishing my 75 in the next week or two. Your bars are making me rethink my risers though.
