2011 Soma Rush

[UPDATE]: RIP this Soma Rush. I had an accident that ruined the frame and fork so I ended up parting out what I could over the summer of '12. Soma helped me out a TON by giving me a discount on a crash replacement frame. Good people! See my other bikes for details. My first track frame. Loving it so far! Weighs in at 18lbs on the dot. I'm a bit of a weight weenie but I don't think I'll get it under 17lbs for fear of it becoming impractical.

Frame:
2011 Soma Rush 57cm. Tange Prestige steel with butted rear end. Tange forged dropouts. 75.5 deg seat tube, 74.3 deg head tube, and 58mm bb drop.

Fork/Headset:
Retrogression straight blade chrome threaded track fork. 38mm rake. Tange Seiki Passage 1" threaded headset

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Shimano 600 cranks - 170mm. Shimano BB

Pedals:
Wellgo RO-25 track pedals with Retrogression 2X chrome toe clips and double black leather straps.

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
19T 3/32" Surly Track cog with Formula lockring. 53T Shimano 600 chainring. KMC Z chain.

Handlebars/Stem:
Soma 456 track drop handlebars with 1" threaded SR quill stem. Black Lizard Skins DSP bar tape.

Saddle/Seatpost:
Bontrager Inform RXL saddle - Hollow Ti rails and carbon reinforcement. Velo Orange Grand Cru seatpost. Looking to get a Thomson Elite.

Brakes:
Tektro Quartz R720 dual pivot front brake with stock pads. Tektro RL720 cross lever.

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Spinergy Rev-X raw carbon fiber 4 spoke. Decals removed. 25C Serfas Seca RS tire in gray.

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Alexrim DA28 700c Rim laced to All City track hub in pewter with DT Swiss Competition double butted (2.0-1.8) silver spokes. 25c Serfas Seca RS tire

Accessories:
BFSSFG Sticker :) Profile Design water bottle cages on seatpost.
