    weather,

    Send an e-mail to me at one_x_one_craig@yahoo.com, and I'll add it to the list. I have to review/update the MFGR links soon, but haven't had time. It's a time-consuming process, given all of the links involved.

    Thanks,
    Craig

    Soma builds good stuff...

    I've got a Soma Groove mtb that I had converted to ebb and the bike has given me miles of smiles. Very comfortable (631) tubing. I am sure that the new SS is a nice rig and I highly recommend them to anyone who is interested, as well as Gene Spicer who did the ebb for me---he is a class act.

    That thar just may be the frame that I am looking for. I have seen the regular mountain frames in the $300-$400 range. And the geometry on the 19 is real close to what I was fit for last. Now to convince the wife, or sneak it by her

    Looks like a nice tool, but it looks like it's Windows-based. I switched over to Linux over 9 months ago, and haven't looked back. I didn't know that I could live a life without "Fatal Errors" and the "blue screen of death"

    I will investigate the URLs soon, though!

    Same geometry as the Groove. I wish they would just give it a slightly longer top tube. Still, a very nice frame for the $$ers.

    Maybe IRD will make one in 853 Reynolds. Since Soma makes IRD's frames. I think Soma used to make the old Breezer frames and those were sweeeeeeet.

    I built up 2 Groove frames in 2002. Very nice hardtail frames, great ride, good construction. I'll bet the SS frame will sell well.

    Didn't Somas (and IRDs) used to have narrow chainstay spacing, reducing clearance for fat tires? I recall looking at the IRD for SS and thinking its biggest tire clearance was a typical 2.1 (more like 2.0).

    In classifieds

    there's an ad taking pre-orders on the Soma SS frame (search Soma). Price looks decent and the geometry fits me well but I got too many bikes.

    Not my ad, yadda. etc.

    I'm in the process of updating the FAQ manufacturer links, and have added the Soma (looks nice). I'm about 2/3 of the way done with the updates. It'll be posted soon.

    Thanks,

    They made in the states? Or are they "designed in America"? Just curious

    Soma's country of origin

    I believe that the soma frames are made outside the U.S.
