Review of the Soma Fabrications B-Side 27.5" (650b) Mountain Frame V.2:
been riding mtb xc since 1984
yup
over 79 bikes owned...mostly tange or columbus higher end steelies

went with the 29er for 8 years...goes over all, climbs like a goat...but not so fun in the end.

6' tall, but wanted a more flicky and SS compat. bike. Had a Ti and sold it to get a SS AND a geared b-side....absolutely the best for comfort, performance and versatility bang for bucks.

Go get your FS carbon, leave the real steel for me.

Summed up: bombproof, resilient, versatile, classic, prestige may NOT b the prestige of yore.but it's still DAMN good. Enjoy the supple

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.
