My new bike. I won it at the SFBC Winterfest. I was intrigued by the mini format after seeing the Bruno bike. I saw a couple at Bike Expo in a FGFS spec. So when I saw the Soma at Winter fest I got excited and decided to bid.
I now own a Mini Velo and I love it! feels a little familiar because of my bmx bikes as far as handling. I have commuted with it and will continue to do so. I am currently looking for fenders that will fit it (20") and not cost a lot. Any suggestions?
Here are a couple more pics
Thanks to the SFBC, Soma Fabrications, Planet Bike, and Brad at American Cyclery.

Up for your consideration is a 48cm Bridgestone XO-3. Very low mileage - probably less than 300. It has a few scratches and knicks on the rear triangle but otherwise the paint is vibrant and colorful.
- GB randonneur bars
- Cinelli stem
- Suntour bar end shifters
- Tektro brake levers
- KHS Uno fenders

A pic of me as blogged by Manny
The famed Bridgestone XO-1 was made for only two years, 1992 and 1993. The XO series of bikes were "hybrid" bikes, but Grant Peterson (the Bridgestone USA visionary) didn't want them associated with the typical hybrids, and always used quote marks around the word when he used it."

At around 6:15 on my commute back from work in San Jose. I stop by safeway to grab some food to cook at home. I decide to take a quick stop at target so I lock my bike up to itself with a 12 pack of ginger ale and 5 pounds of ribs in the front basket. I come back. And my bike is gone. ribs and ginger ale on the floor. Soo sad. If anyone sees this bike on bart tonight or on craigslist please contact me . Getting in contact with the police right now.
Most recent picture of the bike
Most noticable feature would be the double wrap cotton handlebar wrap with black and white.
