Soma's B-Side mountain frame sports cutting-edge 27.5" (or 650b) tires, which are halfway in between the more common 26" and 29" MTB tires. 650b tires roll over obstacles better and are more stable at speed than a 26" wheel and are lighter weight than 29er wheels. 27.5" bikes also have less of the unwieldy feel that 29ers are known for. Soma's 3rd generation B-Side has a slightly slacker geometry. Still great for XC trail riding, but more controllable when things get fast. Snazzy Tange/IRD Sliding Dropouts allow you to go single-speed or geared. - Tange/IRD Sliding Dropouts allows geared and single-speed builds with easy wheel removal - Designed to accommodate a 100/120mm travel fork (69 degree head angle with 100mm fork, 68 degree head angle with 120mm fork)
Note: the photo doesn't show a fork, but rest assured a matching steel disc-brake fork is included. One of the most graceful frames in production, the Soma Buena Vista frameset is now compatible with disc brakes, making it a rarity among mixtes. Handbuilt of high-quality Tange Prestige steel. Drop us a line with any questions about sizing, or if you'd like to discuss a complete custom build. We also often have complete builds in the shop. A true mixte frame with the double top tube/stays. Obviously offers lots of standover height and style as well. You’ll find the geometry is more sporty, than upright-comfy. Though it can be built up to suit either demeanor. Drop bars? Sure. Moustache bars? Of course. And for 2018 we have upgraded the Buena Vista to fit disc brakes. This not only improves wet weather braking, but allows it to fit wider, more sure-footed tires. – Tange Prestige heat-treated CrMo steel main tubes – Sport touring geometry – Matching lugged crown CrMo steel fork included.

Think of the Wolverine Gravelo as an off-pavement randonneur, a 700c or 650b (your choice) 2 x 10 build that we've optimized for adventures far from pavement, where the deer and the antelope play in the middle of the road, just like you. There's a higher-level Gravelo, which we call the Powerplant build. It includes a Shutter Precision dynamo hub, a Busch & Mueller Luxos U front light that charges your phone or external battery, and a Busch & Mueller tail light (your choice depending on mounting position). We can build up the Gravelo with either the standard QR steel fork, the thru-axle steel fork, or the QR carbon All-Road fork. Pricing shown here is based on the QR steel fork. The Gravelo joins our other Soma Wolverine builds: the Daily Grinder city build and the Weltgrinder Rohloff touring build. The pictures below show Gravelo builds from the past few years, and some of them have specs that differ from those listed here. The current colors for the v3 frame are gloss red and gloss black.
