Here are some pictures of my Soma Doublecross which I have set up to be a randonneuring bike. So far I had it on two 200K brevets as well as many shorter rides and it is one really sweet ride (just as the mastiff in the picture with it is one sweet dog). The paint job is amazing - in any moderate light it just looks black, in strong light at some angles you can pick up a reddish-purple color and from other angles you see the metallic Kelly green sparkles.
