Color: Soma Frame Riff Aqua Mint XSM

The version 2 of the Riff offers practical updates to features and geometry without going all-in with "progressive geometry" that almost every brand has adopted. Our reason is that we wanted to keep this frame as a hardtail that's great for bike packing and has a familiar-feeling on long days in the saddle on rolling terrain. "Progressive geometry," which can be awesome for steep technical trails, can feel less fun or even uncomfortable on flatter terrain.

We did opt for more reach, a slightly steeper seat angle for more efficient climbing, and shorter seat tubes to benefit dropper post use. We also got rid of seat tube bottle bosses on some sizes to allow longer dropper posts to be used.

The rear hub spacing is now Boost 148mm.

Still a highlight on the Riff are the tough Broski Sliding Dropouts, which lets you tune your chainstay length as well as allowing you to run the as a bike single-speed, with derailleur gears or with hub gears.
