    Soma Double Cross Disc

    Figured I should post my finished ride on here. Lots of fun painting and making this ride all "mine." PPG paint custom color. Little but if pin striping and I think I got my simple, clean looking rig. Anyone else run a Soma?

    Very nice! I just picked up a 2012 Soma DC that needs a drivetrain. I'm trying to find the parts on a limited budget, but hope to have something enjoyable and attractive to ride.

    Soma Double Cross Disc

    Looks great! What are the tires and did you set them up tubeless?

    Cyclocross race. Tubeless. Crest rims, Hope hubs. Little heavy, but reliable.

    Owned a couple of um. Just wish theyd increase the length of the HT and give the TT some slope so you dont have to use a **** ton of spacers to reduce the seat-bar drop.

    Agreed. Don't mind the spacers too much, but a little geo fix would be nice.

    Yeah, i ran 110 x zero stems on all of um to reduce the number of spacers. But man, a taller HT and sloping TT could be a huge improvement YMMV.

    Shameless plug: I have a Doublecross for sale in the classifieds if anyone is interested, check my sig or do a quick search.

    Regarding headtube length, my Soma has a longer headtube (+15mm) and a shorter seat tube (-~40mm) than my one size bigger Crosscheck. So, the Soma's top tube slopes slightly (vs. the CC's dead level tube), and I use less spacers. That's a good thing for me, since I run my bars about as high as I can.

    Question for you Soma Double Cross guys:
    I have a 2012 DC V2 that I've been gathering parts for. I just realized the other day that the retailer I bought it from didn't ship it with a derailleur hanger and they don't seem very cooperative in helping me get one. Does anyone out there know where I could get a derailleur hanger? Is there an aftermarket version that fits? Part number? Thanks.

    You don't need a derailer hanger... it's built into the frame.

    Mine looks like this. It must be older.

    It kinda looks that way from my picture. From handling and looking at it, though, you can tell that it's not broken. It's cleanly machined and finished. It also has 2 mounting holes that must be for the dropout. It seems rare (to me) to see a steel frame with a removable hanger; I wasn't expecting that when I bought it. I don't mind as long as I can find one.

    Yes, thanks for the help. I got the part number from you (or someone at somainfo@somafab.com) and ordered it from Merry Sales through my LBS. Everything worked out great. It's all built up except for bar tape which I'll wrap as soon as I finalize the fit. I have about 100 miles on it, including 30 miles of Maine gravel roads (picture gravel roads through forest corridors bursting with fall colors). The ride quality and characteristics are great. It's been a lot of fun so far. I'll post specs and pics shortly.

    Portland, ME. We just moved out here a two months ago from Utah. Have you heard of the East Coast Greenway? Here in Maine, it's pretty continuous and intermittently paved. I'm not sure what it's like in NH, but it's worth looking into.
