Soma Grand Randonneur Custom 55cm
Contact us at the link below for current availability.
The Grand Randonneur is a svelte road frame optimized to carry a front load. We have equipped it with rear rack mounts, but it feels best with a loaded front mini rack or a handlebar bag.
Version 3 of the "Grando" makes quite a few updates:
The geometry is still low trail in the front, but we have tried to make the handling slightly more stable than versions 1 and 2.
We have tweaked the tubing mix to add stiffness at the bottom bracket while keeping this frame still our lightest model.
We have modernized parts of it: Adding IS disc mounts and thru-axle hubs compatibility. And of course, everyone wants just slightly more tire clearance.
With its skinny steel tubes and 1" threaded lugged crown fork it still has the vintage road bike look.
