Belt drive Soma Wolverine 3.0

So, here is my, I suppose, final build of long awaiting dream bike Soma Wolverine. I bought frame in USA and shipped it to Ukraine. It was only frame without fork and other accessories. I was lucky to grab it before COVID madness. Moreover, it was 4th of July, so I got great discount. Seems like it was the last frame in stock there. So, it's Soma Wolverine 2018 B-side type which means belt drive compatible, 54 size. Actually, I was looking any crmo frame set for using it with internal gear hub in combination with belt drive system by Gates Carbon Drive. And Soma Wolverine was the best choice for my, number 1 in my tracklist. Luckily, I've managed to get it in fire red colour. Previously, I've build road commuting bike with belt drive system based on heavy aluminum Scott Sub model. Which is 100% commuter. So I swapped most of my parts from Scott to Soma. Before my frame arrived, I also managed to get new crmo fork from Surly Straggler on bike24, which is pretty heavy, around 1kg but have extremely nice flex and awesome looking. Also, new Dt Swiss r500 rims were laced and fit perfectly on Wolverine. One of the last upgrade was changing brakes from truly great TRP Spyre-C to powerful Hy/Rd.
