Check out this Pedal Revolution refurbished beauty posted on the Soma Fabrications Blog!

A great write up about a recent Pedal Revolution refurbished bike build on the Soma Fabrications Blog: Rehabbing a Classic Peugeot 26″ Montreal Express We’re in the business of making frames, so it’s not surprising that we focus a lot of attention on creating new things. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t appreciate well […]

Custom "Raspberry Beret" 53cm Town-Style

Prince’s music remains difficult to find for free on the internet, and it’s a hard thing to complain about when you consider his musical talent and incredible writing.  So when I was trying to find a good video to link here, I was thwarted.  That’s okay though, because we all know the song and the […]

Custom "Turbo Banana" Touring Rig, 56cm

Though there are indeed hundreds of types of bananas that we humans eat, they are all crosses of only two wild banana species.  This makes bananas quite susceptible to disease, which led big fruit companies (primarily Dole) to buy up vast acreage in the tropics as a hedge against future outbreaks.  Those interested in reading […]

Riding South on a SOMA

One of the great pleasures of living in San Francisco is the ability to escape it quickly.  This is not to say that city life is bad or anything negative like that, but to acknowledge that many of us require regular visits to nature to maintain our well-being. The other day I had a prime […]

Custom Veridian Blue Mixte 49cm @ Pedal Revolution Refurbished Bicycle Update

Once again we have a classic in stock.   This lugged steel frameset got a beautiful new powder coat a while back, and last week we built it up as a nice city cruiser.  We’d been calling the paint “veridian” due to the greenish tinge, but truth be told it’s probably closer to a more […]

Novara Trionfo 48cm @ Pedal Revolution Refurbished Bicycle Update

While shopping a while back I purchased a bottle of what I assumed to be olive oil, based on the presence of those words on the label as well as a prominently displayed Italian flag. It was only when I got home that I discovered it had been blended with canola oil, reducing it from prime bread-dipping status to […]
