Soma Saga Custom Build


If you're looking for a die-hard tourer or back roads flyer for your next adventure, this could be for you. 

We built this Tange tubed Soma Saga for an Africa trip that didn't happen. we built it 3 x 9 speed for dependability and easy to find spares. V-brakes for simplicity and ease of adjustment, added an SP dynamo hub for on the go device charging and eternal light (!). It ships with a rugged Continental Crossride tires for taking on rougher roads and tracks. 

Some further nice touches include Dajia offroad drop bars, with Cane Creek brake levers and classic Velo Orange stem, and of course a Brooks B17 saddle for those long days. 

Ships without pedals, ask us for options. We can also add a dynamo headlight (AXA LUXX70 Plus Steady Auto for $180 or Supernova E3 Pro II for $299). 

Any way up it's a stunner of a touring rig! 


"A touring frame to take you to places far and wide. Built stoutly, because no one wants to experience a breakdown on the Alti Plano. Extra long chainstays help keep your panniers out of the way of your pedaling. Taller headtube for a comfortable all day riding position." 

  • Specially specced Tange Prestige heat-treated CrMo tubing; 31.8mm butted downtube and top tube for a stiffer front triangle. Bombproof headtube is nearly impossible to ovalize. 
  • Rear load bias touring geometry (rides best with a load in the rear or with a load in the front AND the rear) 
  • Sold as a frame/fork set. Matching flat crown fork has double eyelets at the dropouts and low rider pannier mounts 
  • Spoke holder, pump peg, flat chainstay plate(fits double kickstands), three sets of bottle bosses 

Size: 54cm centre-top
