    I have been in limbo cuz of trail running lately. Plus I have a stable of so many bikes, with so little time. My main ride is the Giant NRS3, oldie but goodie!

    I am in the process of building a Juice SS and have ran into an issue mounting my Avid brake caliper. Not matter which Avid adapter I try it just will not line up with the rotor.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Not on my (former) Juice, but on a couple of other frames I've used presta valve nuts as spacers to get the caliper in the range of the alignment flexibility.

    I really need a better pic of my Juice

    It doesn't really glow angelically, but it does ride pretty nicely:



    It's the new for this year 22" size.

    Jeff, I just built up a new wheel for my Juice, old is SS, new is geared, and I didn't even have to adjust the caliper for the new one. However, I am running Hayes Strokers, so maybe a difference there. There is a slight possibility that your specific frame may have a defect in the positioning of the caliper mounts. I think I read on here one poster had issues with weld bead filling the slot in the shifter cable stop.

    Hey Jeff,
    Can you expand a bit? Is the caliper not able to reach the rotor (horizontally)? Or, just can't seem to line up vertically? Are the mounting tabs on the frame straight? Like meltingfeather said; I too, had to get creative with spacers on an older Juice. My most recent model has been flawless.

    Here to help,

    Steve

    Figured out the issue with the rear brake not mounting correctly...don't try and use a front brake adapter.

    Glad you got it figured out.

    For those of you with the new frame, how do you like the new dropouts? Do they move on you at all? After having my 20" XL for over a year now, I feel like going up a size would fit me better and I do have my rear wheel slide on the dropouts at times since I run it geared. If the feedback is good, I'll probably be selling off this XL frame and moving up.

    Mine have been creak- and slip-free so far. I'm starting to be forced to revise my negative opinion of sliders....

    Built this past May. I am thinking of making this a 1x9 setup for this fall/winter but can't decide on a chain guide (no bash ring as I hope my HBC ring will be in soon). Any suggestions???

    NEW Soma Juice Build

    Dude, that is awesome looking!!! I am envious of the new frame with slider dropouts. If you want to go 1x9, then I'll buy this frame for my SS version of "The Green Hornet" As for the chain guide, go with a Paul's; it is the most minimalist with out a bash guard.

    The apple green Juice looks great. I'm researching for a build and I love the Soma.
    Thanks for the pics, it makes my decision a lot easier.

    What size are you guys riding for how tall you are? I'm 5'9 with longer legs but I'm worried about a long top tube
    There's something about those long grueling climbs that gets my front end all stiff... And I'm not talking about lockout...

    I'm 5'9" with short legs and rode an 18" (SOMA size Large). It fit me great. With your build, I'd say an 18" with some seatpost exposed is the way to go. I would think that the XL 20" would be too long for a 5'9" person.
    Enjoy the ride!

    I have a short torso. The tt worries me. I ride an 18" trance and it feels crammed. A 17.5 felt elite and it feels perfect. I guess the soma would be closer to the felt in geo since my trance is so slack. The felt also had a 90 or 100mm stem so I have room to shorten the soma. Pretty sure I would have a dangerous amount of Seatpost exposed if I went 16.

    Better hurry....there arent many of the 22" frames left in the green. For 2013 they got rid of the drop top tube (which I think is one of the biggest differentiators of the bike) and the candy apple green color. My 22" frame showed up yesterday along with all of my parts from various online suppliers. Dropping off at LBS later today for "the build." Details and pics tomorrow, I hope! My wife asked me if I was going to sleep with the frame last night...lol.

    Just called my lbs today. Out of 12 models. 2013 models come with a straight top tube and a half shorter inch seat tube per size. Also the color is a raw nickle. Still looks ****ing sweet! Won't be shipping till late December. I'll be buying one in January.
