My Soma Steel hybrid build...

Well finally the bike I always wanted is here. I bought a used Jamis Coda Elite that I slowly built up with higher end parts over a few years, then once I had that all set, I searched for a frameset around $800 or less and settled on the Soma Double Cross Disc with their steel fork. I had originally wanted a Gunnar frame but it was too pricey. So I got it built yesterday, puttered around town a bit and will break her in for a 25 mile ride tomorrow. This will be my all around bike, pretty much for riding around the city recreationally, a little commuting, and maybe exploring some gravel. Cheers!

Frameset: Soma Double Cross Disc in Sky Silver with matching steel fork
Rims: H Plus Son Archetype
Hubs: Deore XT
Brakes: Deore XT Hydraulic Disc
Shifter: Deore XT
Rear Derailleur: Deore 10 speed
Cassette: Deore XT
Crank: Fuji Oval 730 narrow wide - it's a 1x10 setup
Pedals: Exustar MB Platform
Seatpost: Easton
Seat: Brooks Cambium
Headset: Cane Creek 110 Premium
Tires: Panaracer T-Serv PT
Handlebars and Stem: Whatever came with the Jamis Coda Elite

That looks like a great set up you have there, but I am curious to know about the Jamis Coda Elite.

Was the frame of a Jamis Coda Elite not good enough to attach better parts to, as you have done with the Soma Double Cross?
