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.

Straggler is a bikepacking-inspired road/gravel bike mostly at home on pavement but ready for trail duty when called. Born on Gravel. Raised on Pavement Straggler is tuned for cross-over exploration on a wide variety of terrain conditions. It's a day-tripper and a weekender. It's a "rough road" road bike, a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing, a utilitarian townie, a light-duty touring bike and an all-weather commuter. It's a steel gravel bicycle that thrives on the road. Think of it as a "mountain biker's road bike." If you only have room for one bike in your life, Straggler can (and should) be your one and only. Straggler's capabilities go well beyond asphalt. It also lends itself well to light touring setups. We're talking frame bags, seat bags, and "credit card touring" rather than full-blown touring. Straggler also handles our 8- and 24-Pack Racks well, so you have some heavier-duty loading options. - Accommodations for racks and fenders - Forward-exiting horizontal dropouts for singlespeed compatibility and wheelbase adjustability - Clearance for 650B x 41mm tires with fenders!
