Soma now has a 'cross bike in stainless steel

Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

- Fillet brazed KVA MS2 double butted stainless steel tubing
- Disc brake-specific (international mounts on chainstay)


"We were really excited designing with KVA MS2. This air hardening stainless steel is really amazing. The strength and anti-corrosion characteristics of MS2 is really more in the league of titanium than other steel micro-alloys. With MS2 you get the road connected feel that steel is famous for, plus snappy energy transfer without resorting to oversized tubes you need with titanium".

That's pretty sweet looking, but I think I'd rather have four or five Double Crosses.
