Soma Buena Vista – Matthias
A fun project started with the NITTO moustache handlebar Matthias already had: Together we planed a out of the ordinary Every Day- / Touring bike an basis of the Soma Fabrication Buena Vista Mixte frameset. Goal was a classical look with a highlight, that in the end was done by using hammered copper fender besides all the shiny polished parts. The simple but highly versatile 3×10 speed drivetrain was realized with Microshift rear dearailleur combined with a beautiful Velo Orange Grand Cru 110 triple crankset and Dia Compe shift levers on the frame. Handbuild wheels with SON dynamo and Velo Orange hub rear combined with shiny H+SON Archetype rims and the manifestation of a classical touring tyre: Panaracer Pasela with tanwall sides. Berthoud leather saddle and honey Brooks Microfbre bar tape and polished Pelago rack are good match as well. You want to realize a fun and unique project like that too? Get in contact!
