SOMA Buena Vista Frame Set
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.
