SOMEC are a smaller builder/contract builder.
They have (had when I followed things more closely) an excellent reputation.
They could be compared to Billato, for instance.

Are you looking into a frame in the US? New? Used? Maybe call the US distributor or a store that carries the brand.

I doubt you will get much real feedback here. SOMEC is pretty small, esp. in the US market.

Nice bike.

2 things of interest:
1) There is no "Mr. Somec." SOMEC stands for SOcieta' MECcanica. The founder/owner of SOMEC is Oliviero Gallegati, a former Giro mechanic.

2) The "Ferrari" horse was, before becoming the Ferrari symbol (with the tail up), the symbol (crest) of the Italian aviator and WWI ace Count Francesco Baracca, also from Lugo, Romagna. The Baracca family later donated the symbol (which had the tail down) to Ferrari.

your somec theory is a fraud cadence baby.. i dated the daughter of mr. somec for 3 yrs (not exclusively). we used to have sex on maranello where i rode the ferrari horse myself many many times. the horse obeyed only to me and Enzo.
Speaking of frauds, you're the guy with that "Pinarello" which is really just a cheap rebadged Caloi, right?
