///many thanks///

thanks for everyone for all the great comments.

i miss the carefree brakeless days on this bike; and i'm glad that velospace is here to let this bike live on in this setup and gives me the chance to reminisce now and then.


I agree! This is the best build of a Soma Rush I have seen all the way down to the color scheme! If it were 53cm I would be trying to make an offer for it. Black Phil High Flange to Black V's is such a classy look on any ride and my next wheel set for sure.


nice freakin build! cleanest rush in here.. what fork is that exactly tho? if you dont mind..


a frame builder in zurich named alois iten makes them. he sells them out of his shop located at the velodrome in oerlikon.

Very Nice

Great look to the bike, the brown with the black worked out nicely. Really like how tight the clearance is with that front tire and fork, no daylight there ha.

Now go skid your tire off.


Nice ride man.


Work of Art

Every time I see this bike I wish I had it.
Great job- truly a work of art.

brown soma


clean build.

clean build.

news flash!

after getting sick of seeing the bike with a brake (and since the police have eased up), i removed the heinous front brake. liberation!


...well, i like to look at this picture when i think of the braun-byke, because after being captured and held prisoner for three loooong days by the basel police department, it is now donning a foul forlorn front brake and lever. it's staying strong, but when i'm not looking, i know it's crying...


So how'd that paint job go?

You said you got it powder coated? You do it/have someone else?

Thanks! Looks great!

Love your bike. Definitly

Love your bike. Definitly inspired me to run the NJS stem with my risers
