The new Soma Fabrications Vanhallen 27.5 Frame is the newest offering in the Soma hardtail lineup. The recognizable Tange Prestige heat-treated butted CrMo main tubes offer a supple, lightweight ride quality. Even though this is a steel frame it still has all the makings of a modern mountain bike.

asked by: Octopusbeak 1. Does this frame need to have BB/headtube/seat tube faced/chased/reamed? 2. Does White Industries make a compatible headset for this frame and the tapered steerer of the Whisky No. 9 fork? 3. Does it include rear axle?
anwered by: canteau 1) Soma does not face their frames after painting, so it's recommended that they are faced before being built, we also recommend that you use a rust treatment like Frame Saver. 2) White Ind does make a ZS/EC44 headset to work with a tapered fork. 3) The thru-axle is included with the frame
