Bike geek humor.

On one of my routes I take, there has been some revitalization being done to an old strip center. Yesterday I had to stop and take this picture.
And now I am hoping everyone else gets the bike related humor this store's name unintentionally has.

Excuse me now. I am off for my lunch time ride, and this time I promise not to read too much into store names.

So, would that be a Performance house-branded Soma Fab line of parts?

I don't get it. I guess it has something to do with the small San Francisco-based "Soma" frame manufacturer?

Is this French or something? Why would that be bike geek humor? Do bike geeks all speak French now? (or whatever language that is)

I'm still confused.

I never said this was great material. Apologies for not putting the disclaimer of "Hey guys, this is the closest that Pasadena,TX can come up with for cycling related humor" in the op.

I'm more interested in the place to the right. It's either a yoga place, a yogurt shop, or a temple where they worship an Old One.
