Recently I completed my new Soma 'Groove' build with an eclectic mix of modern budget components combined with upscale retro parts. Everytime I see a Soma frame I'm amazed at their quality.
I've been a part-time bike mechanic since 1973 and in my honest opinion the Prestige tubing, build quality, paint, clear-coat, decals and the fine jewelry like head badges are works of art. The head badges are a crowning touch to Soma frames. Soma frames overall quality far exceeds many custom frames costing hundreds of dollars more. I've seen and owned a few bikes over the years and Soma quality is beyond doubt the very best! As some say: 'Steel is Real'. A Soma Prestige framed bike feels comfortable, resilient, shock absorbing and above all responsive. With the proper care a Soma frame will last many, many years!
