WIP Update

Soma Juice 29r

Soma Juice 29r

The Juice is coming along. Front wheel ready for disc brakes, bar padded and taped, levers pretty close to finalized. Steerer tube cut to length. Gearing will be an ongoing challenge. Adding those fat tires certainly changed things – it takes some muscle to get them moving.

Fattest tires I've ever run...!

Flip flop - 17/19 FG or 18t SS drivetrain. 32t up front - but that may change.

    Mike,

    Unrelated to this post, I recall that you posted a write-up on a winter hat you were fond of last year although maybe it was on the Google Rando forum. I can’t seem to find it in the archive. Any clues? It’s getting colder and my ears are killing me.

    Cheers,

    George

    Is them there Kenda Nevegals? I put them on front of the YakYeti and glory in their stickiness. Gotta vrrooom soon.

    Yes, I now ride on Nazg├╗l through the land or Mordor in search of the one ride to rule them all. Heavy, grippy, for sure. 2.2 inches of gnarly nubbies. Yes, we must ride soon.
