Soma Fabrications will be donating a brand new Tradesman cargo frame to this year's event! The Tradesman is modeled after the classic Schwinn cycle truck, but made from modern Tange Infinity CrMo steel and takes front and rear disc brakes. It is designed to carry 40-50 lbs on the lowered front deck. Like most Soma frames, this will also fit a rear rack. Retail value: $700.
Soma Fabrications is a locally-based designer/maker/importer of high performance steel bicycle frames and urban cycling accessories, and just celebrated its 10th anniversary. The Sweep is one of their favorite local events to support, and they've sponsored us year after year.
