soma tradesman

Here it is, my brand new complete (mostly) Soma Tradesman Cylcle Truck.  If you have been following the complete bike build, it has taken a while, and although there are a few more minor things to be done, it is for all purposes, done. 

Wondering what parts are on it?  Here you go:

Tradesman frame and fork
Cane Creek 100 headset
Front wheel: Shimano Alfine 36 hole laced 3 cross to Sun Ringle Envy rim, w/Schwalbe Marathon tire
Rear wheel: Shimano XT 36 hole laced 3 cross to Sun Ringle EQ31, w/ Schwalbe Marathon Tour Plus tire
Race Face Ride crank, 170mm length, 32x22 teeth rings with outer ring replaced with a BBG bashguard
Avid BB& front and rear disc brakes, 160mm rotors
Thomson Elite seatpost, with a Selle Anatomica saddle
Profile Design Boa stem with Easton EA30 handlebar
Suntour Power Ratchet thumbshifters, both set to friction to pull an Acera rear derailleur and LX front
Avid Speed Dial 7 brake levers
Sram 830 8 speed cassette, 11-32 teeth, 850 chain
Portland Design Works Speed Metal grips, Barista coffee mug holder, brass bell
Plescher double kickstand
Civia Halsted fenders
Planet Bike Blaze Dynamo front light (not shone PDW Radbot 100 rear light)

Total  weight 45 pounds.

Some things left to do, get some real pedals, a rear rack, and a front basket or one of these bags.  And figure out a way to carry my repair kit. Oh yeah,  and a way to tell my wife that I have this bike, and I haven't sold this one.
