    New Soma Juice

    Well, what's the verdict? Retro or not? This is it for this year's colors on the Juice.
    I'm lovin' it but figured I'd get some of the comical comments out of the way.
    I broke my last Juice and Soma stepped up to the plate with a new one. Thanks Soma.

    great bike! I have the old color. I still love the old color as well but this color looks sweet too

    looks like they still have brake bosses? i got one of the older frames with no bosses

    Yep. Still has the brake bosses. Soma hasn't done a lot to update these frames. There's a new gusset and more fork clearance, but removing the rear wheel still requires that you remove one of the caliper bolts. Oh well.
    It's a great riding frame and still remains somewhat of an anomaly.
    I have a steel Double Cross also that is really nice. Great frame for the buck.

    How much clearance issue is there between the caliper and rotor to get the rear wheel off? Are we talking 1mm, 2mm, 10mm? Thx.

    The rearward caliper bolt needs to be removed and then the caliper is rotated up about 4 or 5 mm for the wheel to come off. Probably a big deal if you are a racer or have lots of flats but I don't mind too much.
