    Getting ready to pull the trigger on a new Somec Rex...

    After looking and waiting for what feels like forever and not finding something in my size, I am ready. I learned a lot after pouring over MANY vintage and semi-vintage steel bikes and frames. I have found Somec, a brand I knew little of, to be a very interesting one. Started by a mechanic that had a high standard and still continues to produce top-notch bikes today. I considered Tommasini, Formigli, Pelizzoli and Casati. I'll post pics when this all comes together in about 4-5 months.
    Can't chrome carbon.
    Yes, you can call me a slightly opinionated retrogrouch.
