Bike Build Update
I’ve been ordering parts slowly for my Soma Buena Vista Mixtie build. I’m so excited to begin putting it together!
First, I purchased a gold chris king headset. It’s pretty hot. I also got some cross/touring tires so I can get a little more wild on my commute (ha!).
Next, I ordered a bunch of stuff from Velo Orange. Handlebars, stem, seatpost, brakes, beautiful hammered fenders, and the quintessential Brooks saddle…mmmmm….
We got a nice wheel set donated to the shop because it’s missing a spoke. I snatched those babies right up! One day I hope to get the Chris King Cross Wheelset (which would do double duty on this bike as well as on my yet purchased cross bike), but it’s going to be a while before that wish comes true.
My future plans include gold Chris King bottom bracket, crank set, brake levers (I wasn’t too impressed with those offered from Velo Orange), Wald woody front basket and rear rack, and any other things I’m forgetting.
Any suggestions dear readers? Something I’m missing or choosing wrongly?
