We see a lot of bikes at Dream Cycle, but the Soma Grand Randonneur is unique: The lightest Soma frame, it has the geometry of a vintage road bike, but is optimized to carry a front load.
Pictured above, the model we have in stock is the third version of the Grand Randonneur. With this new version, Soma has tweaked the steering to be extra smooth while maintaining the low trail geometry in the front of the frame. Designed for 650b rims, it can now run tyres up to a width of 47mm. In keeping with its classic aesthetic, it takes a 1″ threaded headset, but has been modernized to be through-axle.
We currently have one such frame in stock, a 55cm Grand Randonneur in Moss Green. We’re selling the frame for $1250—Come by the shop and check it out!
