Hi there,

Thanks for the site - several of the bikes have provided inspiration for the new build in the pictures here. I wanted a bike for the 2-3 hour Sunday morning exercise/exploration/relaxation ride and feel this turned out about right, smooth and comfortable.

Parts list:
-SOMA Smoothie ES 62cm frame
-IRD unicrown steel fork, 43mm rake, Cane Creek headset
-Salsa Delgado cross rims, 36h, Ultegra hubs and Jack Brown 700x33.3mm tyres
