    The front mech. is there until my single ring 'cross setup comes in. I didn't want the chain falling off up front.

    I like the 1x10 setup. Also like the way the rack is mounted "inside" the mounts.

    Your wheelset costs more than the rest of the bike. Nice rig. Looks like Soma has a good fit/finish.

    I have one of those.

    It rides nice but I swear the front fork on my large 64cm frame weighs 5 lbs.

    I refuse to weigh this bike, but it's heavy.

    Do the long reach brakes provide enough stopping power coming down a steep hill with a loaded bike?

    It's flat here on Long Island. I don't ride too aggressively with this bike either.

    That said, I can't complain about the braking. The feel pretty good.

    I like the yellow accents on the bar tape and bags. Well done.

    nice.

    but how would one elegantly cover up the dt bosses? i have some angry bosses on my fixie i would like to hide.

    btw, if you can swing it, pick up some of the cane creek scr5 levers for your front brake. i luff mine.

    old dt levers, campy/shimano cable guides/stops w/ the knobs/springs removed (black plastic or alu), problem solvers thingie made for that purpose, cheap plastic cap of some sort, any number of other ways... get creative
