  • That's an awfully niche thread. Maybe make it a general Soma Owners thread? Just a suggestion.

  • Nah. Big up for the W/O/C ers!

    you clearly have no clue of soma wolverine

    some tweaks done after taking photos..

  • you clearly have no clue of soma wolverine

    Well, you don't see many around (I'm not including the internet), and a Soma thread (maybe it already exist) sounds more appropriate, unless @Tijs and I are missing something... Please elaborate, I'm genuinely looking forward to all the pictures to come either way (Soma or Wolverine)

  • I think Soma owners club makes sense. I'm all for it.

    Mine will get built on friday. Black frame. Most important question: What bar tape colour?

  • One owner and a fanboy here o/

  • Rad, what are the gears on that?

  • Thanks!

    The gearing is 42/11-42.

    Now, some may wonder why not 2x11 for smaller steps between gears. For me, the mostly used cassette cogs are 15-21 (2 teeth jumps between gears). If you go to a gear calculator site (for example: http://ritzelrechner.de/ ) and regard, say, 46/30 with 11-36 cassette, you can see that there are equal steps between gears unless you use front derailleur to fine-tune your cadence, and I do not see much benefit there. Of course 30T small ring and 11-36 cassette would give a low gear of ≈23 gear inches, but currently I have no need for that.

    you probably would like all the steamrollers in surly thread as well?

    #racist

  • Yeah yeah, you could say the same about Croix de Fer...
    I don't know what I want, and my post was actually inviting you or the OP to explain why a thread for a specific model is more appropriate than a thread for just a brand, this section of the forum has plenty... Three of us so far have asked that question, in a non argumentative manner, without being outraged either way, please kindly enlighten us, serious question... I like Soma bikes generally, and the Wolverine a lot too, maybe they're a legendary model, maybe there's a story behind?

  • Wolverine is the greatest frame soma do, IMO. The rest of their bikes are decent, but never coveted any of them. It's not a wolverine or death thread though

  • Black is the obvious choice. Tan leather can be nice with classic build options that feature chrome bits

  • I like the orange/black combo-classic without being too pretty true to its functional roots.

    The drop bar mode is definitely what I'm going to be building mine up for-got some cowbells on the way and depending on how the frame looks like it will fit when it arrives probably an inline post and slightly shorter stem.

  • Is that one of the SunRace wide ratio 10spd cassettes?

    If so I just ordered one too-how is it?

  • I like the very discreet stand mechanism you are using ;)

    Nice build-may I ask what tyres you're using? Looks like you've still got loads of clearance and the dropouts aren't even half-way back.

  • Looks like compass to me. Mine are 47mm and there's plenty of clearance without moving the dropouts back

  • yeah they're compass baby shoe pass extra léger ofc :D

    the missus is a better bike stand than what is commercially available..

  • My frame is being held in Customs : / Thought I'd get it in time for the weekend but looking unlikely now.

    How long does it normally take for ParcelFarce to process and release items?

  • God knows. Probably a year or two max...

  • All these drop bar builds have got me thinking about converting mine for winter...

  • owned by gsc

  • Was wondering if someone would post that here. Looks a bit weird to me
