Very beautiful Standert! That blue color looks better on your photos than on their site. What size is it?

Thank you. It is size 54 (ETT), small within Standert's sizing.

I ve posted a few more pics and details under the "Introduce yourself section". It is a great handling bike.

That Soma is one elegant bike.

My Standert. Not particularly light (7.3-7.6 depending on wheels), but a great handling bike.5C8E7CB4-AE07-4738-9A43-47282B2EC7B6.jpegFF78DF56-6575-4E0D-A6CB-14BCA5671354.jpeg
Clean build. Could you post a pic of how the derailleur cables are routed under the BB out of curiosity?

Sure. Let me know if this works. Pretty standard H, isn't it?

Very nice build also. I assume that is the Ritchey fork?

Absolutely beautiful.
How do you like the GXP Di2 shifters? Are they as everything as good as others claim them to be?
How about the reach? From your photo they look a little longer than the 9170 or 8000 series?

I honestly think that whoever hasn't ridden a steel bike can't understand the amazing riding quality of it. I have been quite lucky to meet the right person at the right time that has enlightenment me with a deep understanding of the magic metal.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

I have a question about the shifters/brake levers.... what combo did you use ??
Personally I think that a bar end shifter would look even cooler...
