2012 Saga

Alright kiddos. You've all been very patient.


For those of you who have been waiting, the new green Soma Sagas are here and ready to ship. They look lovely, don’t they? For those of you who aren't already enamored with this bike, let me give you some background. We introduced the Saga a couple years ago now and it's all ready been ridden pretty much all over the world. The Saga was intended to be a heavier duty option for loaded touring, but it's so much more than that. You can build it up as a comfy rain bike with upright drop bars and fenders. Some light wheels make it feel pretty zippy. You can do Moustache bars and knobbies and have yourself a primo gravel masher. Pop a Soma Porteur rack on the front and Soma Oxford bars and you've got a solid urban utility bike. You can even trick it out with Honjo Fenders and a Nitto Randonneur bars, Guidonnet levers and knobs and a Nitto M12 rack and have yourself a pretty darn nifty bike for long day rides and brevets. So the question you have to ask yourself is why don’t you have one of these? Well I don’t have a good answer for you.

Many's the mile my Tange Nishiki tourer and I shared in the late 70's. Good to see Soma carrying the torch, or should I say the tig-welder?

This looks like a nice option after missing out on the Ivory Double Cross.
