I started & finished the transformation of the Soma Rush this weekend. I took it on it's inaugural ride to return a movie and it rode great. I can't wait for the commute tomorrow.

Sweet ride. Strange name for a bike though....two things that don't go together necessarily well...sleep and high speed cross riding. It's sort of like stitching "Drunk!" on a 747 pilot's uniform.
