Interested in building a do-everything bike, and found these
frames out of SF,CA. (www.somabikes.com). Anyone riding one?

I have a Double Cross frame built up with Ultegra triple, 700 x 35's and full fenders that I use as a commuter. It rides a lot differently than my other bike that has a more standard road geometry. Almost feels like you're elevated a foot higher. Kind of like driving a 4x4 pickup versus a sports car. I don't mean this negatively. It's plenty stable enough, It is a cross frame and not really a road frame after all.
