SOcietà MECcanica was founded in 1973 by Oliviero Gallegati in Lugo di Romagna (Italy). Being a rather small manufacturer, Somec did not produce many bicycles, especially in the beginnings. Besides perfect craftsmanship they became famous in the 1980s for the use of advanced tubings, lugs and their special paintjobs. A fame which they nourished by their flamboyant and technically perfect bikes.

Our Somec Elite SLX is one of those bikes. As the name suggest, the frame is made of racing level Columbus SLX tubes, which has inner spiral reinforcements. And what a frame it is. This heap of refine details shows many pantographes, elegant shot-in seat stays, special brake bridge, spoiler style bottom bracket or the beautiful unicrown fork to name a few.

Our Somec stems from the mid 90s and it is equipped with Campagnolo Athena and Chorus parts with 8-speed Ergopower shifting on the bars.

This bike is an examle of the highest level of 90s frame design and it is a good choice for serious riding.
