Soma Grand Randonneur

This is a build that I'm doing for Soma Fabrications. The white frame with red panels is the 2016-2017 color scheme. The frame is a sample, meaning I'm the first one to have this bike in this color. Sweet! For this particular build, I was shooting for a classic road bike build. I've always thought about building this frame ever since I saw a prototype frame back when I used to work for Merry Sales. This is the build I've been thinking of for the past three years and now it's a complete bike. Here's the build gallery: http://imgur.com/gallery/hmhl1
