Jim G always finds these little gems, but it seems like he sends out some random cool thing like this to the iBOB list about once a month.
But this one is really really cool. Apparently Soma is prototyping this rad mini velo as we speak. Spycam photo from flickr is here.
There's some talk there of making a bike for urban apartment dwelling people or something. Whatever. As I mentioned a while back, this screams fast trail-riding rally commuter pump tracker to me.
Hello -- Soma people! Yes. Build it. Make it cheap and buyable by the frame set only. Nothing fancy. And please put a threadless headset on it. Oh yeah: and 2.5" clearance would be dreamy, but I'd settle for 2".
