Soma Grand Randonneur 650b - Frameset
$489.99
Soma's Grand Randonneur is a true low trail geometry randonneuring frame set, which means it rides better with a front load than other touring and road bikes. Co-designed with Mike Kone of Rene Herse/Boulder Bicycles. It will fit all the gadgets a good rando bike should have. The traditional diameter tubes lend a smooth comfortable ride. They have tweaked the geometry for 2015. We increased frame stack by 15-20mm. Seat tube extension has been reduced. - Designed for 650b wheels and cantilever brakes - Max. tire fit: 650 x 42mm slick tires w/fenders - Max. fender width: 50mm
Soma Wolverine Daily Grinder (complete city build)
$1,579.00 - $2,475.00 $1,879.00 - $2,975.00 Up To 17% Savings
Joe Bike's own Soma Wolverine Daily Grinder housebuild features all the things we look for in an ultimate commuter bike: belt drive, internal gearing, robust tires, and disc brakes, along with an optional dynamo system, fenders, and rack. Together these give you a weatherproof, clean, quiet, ultra-low-maintenance bike that's ideal for less-than-perfect conditions. Fully rack- and fender-friendly. Semi-sweptback handlebars give you a slightly more upright position than flat bars will, yet still lets you put your impressive strength into your pedalstroke. The 46/22 gearing with Alfine 8 is set up for moderately high-speed riding on your typical mildly hilly Portland terrain (excluding the west hills, that is). However, if you'll be hauling some weight with you, climbing steep grades, or just wanting to take it easy, we can lighten this up by using a 24t cog...or even a 26t...at no extra charge. Just ask. And now, we can build the Daily Grinder up with drop bars, thanks to the recent appearance of Alfine-8 bar-end/downtube shifter from MicroShift and an integrated shifter/levers from Portland's own Gevenalle. Get in touch if you're interested. We're also offering now an 11-speed Wolverine Daily Grinder with dynamo system, rack, and fenders, based on the new v3 frame in red or black. Or you can have us build the same specs using a v2 or v2.1 orange or black frame, subject to the availability of your size and color. You can see pictures here of an orange one with gumwall tires. The 11-speed versions are actually less expensive than the 8-speed, and that's just a function of the super-low price on the complete 11-speed build kits we were able to get. We can also do an Alfine 11 Wolverine with drop bars using Microshift's STI-like 11-speed shifter. Questions people ask us about this bike: Q: Don't I need to adjust the belt tension every time I reinstall the rear wheel, such as when I change a flat? A: No. Soma, along with a few others, "gets" belt drive and have designed their dropouts accordingly. In this case, Soma uses Paragon sliding dropouts. The only time you should need to check and adjust belt tension is in the future, when the belt teeth gradually erode and the tension therefore gradually slackens. This adjustment is easily done on the Wolverine, and you won't have to do it for maybe the first 2,000 miles or so, although this depends on your riding style. The Portlandistan version adds a premium dynamo system, stylish Full Metal Fenders from Portland Design Works, and a light but stiff Axiom Streamliner Disc DLX rack, which has twice the capacity of most racks. Q: Can I make substitutions or other changes? A: Sure, but the price will likely change. We sourced build kits at a lower cost than you'd expect, and that's reflected in the surprisingly low price of the bike. But just let us know what you have in mind (email is best). Q: What are some upgrades I should consider? A: A Brooks Cambium or leather saddle would be nice. Either PDW Whiskey leather ergo grips or Ergon Biokork ergo grips would make good sense. If you want to charge your smartphone, Garmin, or camera off of the dynamo system, the Busch & Mueller Luxos U headlight does that very well, although it's expensive ($258). Kickstands are highly underrated. Schwalbe Marathon Supreme tires would make you the customer of our dreams.

Soma Wolverine 700c/650b V2 Frame
$375.00 - $646.00
Joe Bike has built up more Wolverines than any bike shop in the world, so throw us your ideas; we've probably already done it. There are now three fork options for the Wolverine, so we're now selling the frame separately from the fork. See Related Items. The original inspiration for the Wolverine was "monster cross", but it is seriously so much more. Its geometry is stable enough for off road touring, but sporty enough for all-around adventure. With its Tange/IRD Sliding Dropouts, you can turn it into a single-speed CX bike. With a split seatstay, it is compatible with the Gates Carbon Belt Drive. - Clearance for 700x45c tires w/fenders (applies to rear only--fork clearance depends on Wolverine fork and ranges from about 44mm max tire width for the carbon fork, to 44-45mm for the thru-axle steel fork, and about 51mm for the quick-release steel fork). -700c or 650b compatible - Rear hub spacing: 135mm - Gates Carbon belt-drive compatible - Rohloff compatible, and now Rohloff/Gates approved! The Wolverine can be built up any way you like, such as with a belt and internal gearing or a conventional drivetrain. Skinny tires, 650b,.singlespeed, internally geared, or conventional derailleur and chain. Drop bars or flat. This is the updated V 2 frame, which features a seatstay splitter (to get the belt in the frame), whereas in the original frame the split was at the dropout. The V2 offers Rohloff+Gates compatibility, whereas the older frame allowed either/or but not both. We're offering our own Wolverine complete builds optimized for city, gravel, or touring. We call them the Daily Grinder, the Gravelo, and the Weltgrinder Rohloff, respectively. Note that this frame will need to be prepped (faced, chased, T-9 sprayed, etc.). We charge $70 to prep frames bought from us (and $105 for frames not bought from us).

Helpful FAQ's

How does One Install a belt on the Second Generation (V2) of the Soma Wolverine Frame?
This version of the Wolverine Soma Frame (V2) comes with what's called a Split Seatstay Design. This allows you to easily install / replace a Gates Belt by unbolting the right seatstay and then sliding the belt through the gap. (see detail pic below)

What are the best style of Brakes to use with the Soma Wolverine?
The best option are brakes that have 160mm rotors (for great stopping power) and that fit international standard mounts that are specced on the Wolverine.
I want to build up the Wolverine, wwhat are the specs I need in order to get the right components?
Front derailleur clamp: 28.6mm
Rear hub spacing: 135mm
Seatpost: 27.2mm
Seat Collar: 29.8mm to 30mm (NOT INCLUDED W FRAME)
Headset: 1-1/8" external cup (SHIS: EC34/28.6 | EC34/30)
Bottom Bracket Shell: 68mm wide, English Threaded
Brake Compatibility: 160mm rotors, International Standard Disc mounts
Chainstay length range: 425-440mm (Soma Fabrications strongly recommend you avoid placing wheel in the Very back of dropout- bad things happen)
Water bottle bosses: 2 sets of mounts
What is the recommended Carbon Drive Setup for the Soma Wolverine
For the Alfine 8 spd hub, we recommend 46t front, 24t rear, and 115 length belt, with the dropout set at 440mm from the center of the BB axle. We recommend the new Center-Track system. Please note: Shimano Alfine Di2 does not fit on the Wolverine due to the Di2's Belt line is not compatible with the Soma Wolverine.

For the Rohloff hubs (compatible with this Split-seatstay design): For a gravel Grinder setup we love setting it up with a 55t in Front x 19t in back with a 115 Belt; 440.19 chainstay setting is a great starting point. For touring or adventure /trail use, use a smaller front ring.

For Single Speed setups: 46t in front x 26t in back x 115 belt and set the chainstay to 435.19mm

We strongly recommend you use the Gates Drive Calculator to figure out your gearing - it is a real help. We recommend starting with 430mm as a chainstay length. This will help you get a useful belt length when you plug in your preferred f
