Soma lists their largest frame at a rather minuscule 58cm.

That Rivendell is listed at a HUGE 64cm, and taking 29er tires.

I'm sure I had seen others looking for tall step-throughs, but this one could be a hard sell.

these look impossible to reach.

well for me I think a 58 would be fine since I always consider it something for when I was older. Iím really kicking myself for not buying the Soma back in 2010 and build it with those 8sod IGH wheels that in a bike I never ride.

Univega at one time made a tall hybrid either the Via Carisma or Via Montega, Iím surprised I never see them listed here.

Easily justified; if anything, it's cheap. I just sold a much more common Schwinn HighPlains for that same price, in a lower cost-of-living market. Between the white Sugino crank, the (Suntour, I presume) thumbies, and the overall config/appearance, it's dripping with the head-turner / conversation-starter factor.

And excuse me a hi-jack BUT if somebody just has to have some I have a pair that I never used and probably never will, so happy to pass them along for cost of shipping. As bianchigirll notes they are supposed to clamp (using a set-screw) to the ends of your regular brake levers and align with your handle bar extension/ends (you DO still have those, right?) on your flat bars.
So you can keep your hands on the extensions but "finger-tip" these add-ons, as noted you don't get as much positive leverage as hands on the levers themselves, but somebody liked them. Ben Lawee spec'd these on some Univega I took them off of...
UPDATE: merziac Has spoken for them (now I just have to find them... and the rest)

Somebody,

RUN, DON"T WALK!!!!

Dating always a crap shoot on these but BB helps with drain means earlier than we normally see may have oil port too, HB appears to be original.

Overall good shape, may be a repaint no matter here.

This one has been posted before, I wonder why it hasn't sold, the setting can be deceiving and not really great pictures..........
It's your size so......

Sorry, according to the above post, it's gone....wrong color Celeste anyway, so no spilled milk.
