2014 Soma Rush Frameset

soma_rush_frm_cp_profile_wfork_900

There is no question that fixed gears have peaked, the era of any old bike with track ends being desirable is over as the market was flooded with street track bikes over the past decade. Contrary to popular belief however they aren’t disappearing, and there are plenty of new and old riders that love the look and feel of a track frame on city streets. Soma was early to the game with their original Rush frameset, and for 2014 have revamped it to reflect the style that brought so many of us into track bikes — the classic steel Japanese keirin frame. Small diameter tubes, side tacked pencil seatstays and a one-inch threaded headset yield a classic look, TIG welded construction keeps the costs down. And since most people will be riding this in the real world rather than on a banked track, the bike has clearance for 32c tires and sports a single seat tube bottle boss. And yes, it is drilled for brakes. Available in chrome in sizes 49, 53, 55, 57, 59, 61cm. See more at www.somafab.com
