The "Prestige" tubing that Soma uses isn't the same as what what it was in the 90s. Current "Tange" is about as closely related as a Windsor is to the original.

1985 Schwinn Mirada mixte - 650b fixed gear

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1GzP68LlzfWT4laRAxEzM5v9vL6ML0PrNkA

2.2 650b fits the frame and fork like they were made to fit. Brake bosses are a touch low though.
