    Soma Double Cross?

    Fist of all, sorry my poor english. I can read it, but writing is more difficult.

    So does anyone have an opinion of the Soma Double cross frame. http://www.somafab.com/frames.html
    i´m searching frame for club riding, long distant riding and possible some light touring and possible PBP somedays. (dreaming of it) Maybe i´m not ready for the next year, but five years on. I allready have bike for heavy touring. (Cannondale T800).
    But I would like to have another bike. Lighter than real tourer. Lighter tyres, but not too narrow (28-30 with fenders) no racks, only carradice barley under the saddle etc. I think that Audax bike would be a right name for it.
    Soma seems to have very nice geometry and reasonably price.

    somas are fine, as are surlys, the soma smoothie and double cross both ride well. they use time proven geometry, and decent steel. go for it.
