hehe, I said “duty”…
Anyhow, I wanted to share my day with all of you. I decided to ride my bike to work today. I have a big project that would have had me working at least 12 hours today. That meant I expected to get off work by the time the sun went down. I made sure I brought my lights just in case I found myself riding my bike home in the dark.
But things got delayed with the project and that lead to the opportunity for me to join Priscilla and a few of our friends at the Fullerton Loop for a night ride. I told Priscilla that I wanted to join her this evening and that I would meet her at the trail head. Lucky for me I rode the Soma Double Cross to and from work, and once I got to the trail, there was no need to swap bikes since the Double Cross is actually a cyclocross bike.
The Soma has been an incredible bike to ride. I ride this frame hard and I doesn’t give any indication that it wants to fail on me. I can actually fly on the trail with the Soma, and check this out. It’s all steel, so that translates to a more comfy ride both on and off road. I can keep up with guys on full suspension mountain bikes, and I can even out climb a few with the Soma.
The fact that the Double Cross can be used as a commuter bike then a cross bike is simply fantastic! I know some guys commute with their mountain bikes, but when you have big fat knobby tires, those can slow you down immensely. However, the 700c Kenda Small Block 8 offers fast rolling for commuting and the traction when I need it on the trail. It’s a perfect bike in my opinion!
