This is my new Soma Smoothie. I was hit by a Ford F150 while riding my Scott CR1 off Rt. 5 on Novemeber 6, so that bike ate it. The CR1 has always been one of my favorite bikes that I have ever ridden, owning 2 over the past 8 years. I hated to part ways with it, but what can you do?
I am eyeing a new 2017 Jamis Xenith Team to satisfy my carbon obsession, so I decided to take the Shimano Dura Ace 9000 components that made it out of the crash alive and put them on a steel frame. All the steel frame options available required longer reach brakes, except for the Soma Smoothie, so the Smoothie was chosen. I added the Liquid Components 50mm carbon clinchers to finish off the package.
Now as soon as these broken ribs heal I will ride.....
