The Chainlink

Hi all,

With the recent purchase of a new bike, I am quickly realizing my 'N' may be a bit too high.  For sale are two wonderful bikes that I hope I can find loving homes for.

Bike 1 - 53cm Soma Rush SOLD


Barely ridden (< 1000 miles) Soma Rush. I built the bike up intending for it to be a commuter/bike that would get me into racing track. Neither actually happened.

This bike is a stunning around the town commuter, and would also serve someone looking to get on the track. The bike is beautiful and has a unique mixture of vintage Campy parts and modern components. The decal on the downtube started to peel off a bit, which I read has been a common complaint on this frame since there's no clearcoat protecting it. Frame is immaculate.  I can include a smaller 44 tooth chainring, as well as some Nitto drop handlebars.

Located in Chicago.

Here's a full list of specs:
Frame - Soma Rush 53cm Raw Aluminum
Crankset - Campagnolo Record w/ 50t chainring
Seatpost - Thomson Elite 0 Setback
Sadde - Brooks Swift
Headset - Campagnolo Record
Handlebar - Nitto B125
Stem - Nitto 100mm

Rims - Velocity A23
Hubs - Surly Front / All-City Rear

$650 obo

Bike 2 - 52cm Cannondale CAAD 10 (pictures here) SOLD

This is a race ready 52cm 2011 CAAD 10-4. Almost every component of the bike has been replaced at one point or another. The groupset is a mix of SRAM Force/Red. Wheels were hand built 2.5 years ago by Brent Edgar of Hoops Wheels and alone cost me $700. Frame has the usual nicks/cable rub marks you would expect for a 6 year old bike, but no dents or significant scratches. Steerer tube has enough space left to run 60mm of spacers, and includes the flat headset top cap so you can slam it and look pro. Unsure of exact weight, but somewhere right around 17lb.

Here's a full list of specs:

Brakes - SRAM Red

Shift Levers - SRAM Force 10 speed

Front Derailleur - SRAM Red, braze-on

Rear Derailleur - SRAM Force 10 Speed

Crankset SRAM Force, 39/53t

Cassette - SRAM Force 11/26t

Chain - KMC DX10SC

Seatpost - Thomson Elite 0 Setback

Sadde - Fizik Antares

Handlebar - Chinese flat-top 40cm

Stem - Thomson X4 110mm 0 degree

Cables/Housing - Yokozuna


Hubs - White Industries T11 (10/11s compatible)

Rims - H Plus Son Archetype

Spokes - Sapim CX Ray 20/24

Tires - Continental GP4000S II (< 1000 miles)

$1000 obo

Bump!  This awesome Soma is still available!


It's a long shot but I am wondering if the Soma Rush is still available. I am also in Chicago.

Let me know.



Hey Nick, sorry this one has been sold.
