Non non normal
I have been setting up my Soma Smoothie for a commuter bike and doing some multi day touring. Anyway, I thought I would break it in for a while until I posted a ride report.

Nice ride, you are right about the non-responsive ride, but it really smooths out rough pavement. For a commuter, it is a good tradeoff. I rode my Pegoretti just under 90 miles on Sunday. On yesterday's commute I stopped once to check the back tire to see if it was going down. Compared to the aluminum race bike, sometimes taking a corner on a compliant frame feels like you have a low tire. You get used to it.
