ZANE'S SOMA WOLVERINE
While Zane has been gallivanting at Mt Buller Victoria for the ski season we have been swooning over this custom Soma Wolverine build eagerly awaiting his return. As far as do-it-all bikes are concerned, we're pretty sure he's got most of the bases covered.
The brief was to replace a stolen road bike but it soon became apparent that he had no real use for a race bike when all he really wanted to do on it was commute and go out on the occasional ride at the weekend. We tried to future-proof for expansion on that in any direction - with possibilities like racing cross and hitting some of the local single track, the Wolverine was our first choice thanks to disc brakes, huge tyre clearances and the relaxed-but-still-fun geometry that has been so popular on builds past.
