New Soma Wheelsets
Soma SoMax Track Wheelsets will soon come in pink, red, blue and amber gold. The SoMax wheelsets features our tough sealed cartridge bearing hubs (fixed-fixed) built to 31mm deep aluminum rims. We will also be producing a small run of three-speed wheels using Sturmey-Archer hubs.
IN-DEPTH COLOR COMMENTARY:(We know sometimes pictures don't tell the whole story). The red is a strong red that does match our riser and straight bars and Sugino RD Messenger cranks. The gold is an amber gold that is maybe 10% more "orangey" than Sugino RD Messengers, which in turn is 8% more "orangey" than the gold of our bars. We will eventually do the wheels in a regular gold that will be a truer match to our bars. The anodized blue and pink match our straight bars quite well. PLEASE note that anodized colors vary slightly from batch to batch, so these comments only valid to stock on hand.
