SOMA Buena Vista Frame Set


We work closely with our partners at SOMA Fabrications to help create bikes, frames, and components that are simple, practical, durable, and affordable. SOMA Fabrications, located in South San Francisco, designs and imports high quality frames and components made to satisfy northern California's active, demanding, and practical cycling community.

The Buena Vista is a true mixte frame with twin lateral stays offering lots of standover height and style for men and women. (Mixte is French for 'mixed.') The geometry is both sporty and utilitarian: build it up to suit your needs. Drop bars? Sure. Moustache bars? Of course.

*SIZING NOTES: 42cm model uses 26" wheels (maximum 26" tire width is 37mm/1.5" with fenders) and 73mm reach brakes (Tektro 556, Rivendell Silvers). The 50-58cm Buena Vista frames use 700C wheels (maximum tire width with fenders is 28mm, 33mm without). To use 38mm wide tires on 50-58cm frames, specify 650b wheels instead of 700C. 

We can custom paint SOMA Frames any color you like for an additional $175-200. Inquire at or visit the shop.
