Title: Soma Saga Touring Frame
Reviewer: Colin Rice(CAN)
Product Code: BTI-SF3616

I just purchased my 56 cm Soma Saga Touring frame/Fork last month. I had the whole bike put together at Mighty Riders in Vancouver, BC. Overall, I am very happy with the feel of this bike. It is extremely stable to ride. Couple of things I don't like. One is that the seatpost adjustment is with an allen wrench and this slipped on me twice and I have had to crank on it pretty hard to stop this. Maybe a change in setpost would help. The other is that while the geometry provides a lot of space between my heels and my rear panniers there is overlap between my toes and the front wheel. This is particulalry noticeable when dismounting at stop lights. Great ride though and I can't wait for spring to do some long and loaded touring.

2 years later on my soma saga touring bike
written by Colin Rice , July 12, 2011
I see this got lots of hits but no comments. Have to say 2 years later I am very happy with this bike. I put a clamp on the seatpost and never had any further problems. Toe overlap turned out not to be an issue. I have been on several fully loaded touring trips and I can report the bike is everything I had hoped it would be. Never really got too many comments on the bike from other cyclists until I put a Brooks B-17 saddle on it. Funny how that works. Best feature is how stable this bike is when fully loaded.

toe overlap
written by Alan Rogers , January 06, 2012
I've struggled with the toe overlap on a 58 cm Surly LHT. Just today, I had a chance to ride LHTs in several sizes at Saturday Cycles, in Salt Lake City. I'm now convinced that my 58 is too small. I'm 6'3", and I just bought the wrong bike. In a 62, there is no toe overlap at all.
