Okay folks. At risk of complete humiliation can anyone tell me if the Soma Buena Vista would be any good as a long distance bike.
I'm not looking at it for audax or heavily laden touring - just gentle credit card touring, with a couple of lightweight bags. (Like a UK End-to-End even... 1000 miles in a couple of weeks.)
With drop bars (or Midge bars maybe), suitable gearing and a couple of those little Nitto racks, I can imagine it being a really characterful traveling companion.
Please tell me if I'm being ridiculous... I can take it!
