After a lengthy year of research and shopping I bought a Soho 4.0 from my local bike shop in late March of 2008. I have been riding it for a month now on a daily basis. PROS: The Alfine internal gear hub. Very smooth, this is my first IG bike, and to be honest, I don't know if I'll ever own another derailleur. There are a couple of gears where the step between them seems large, but overall, the range is great for my fairly flat commute. Thumb/index shifters. I didn't want a twist grip shifter, and I'm happy with these. Internal cable routing. Very nice, I'm not sure why more bikes don't offer this. Tires: Puncture resistant with a nice reflective sidewall stripe. CONS: Aluminum is a bit harsh on the bumps. Stock grips don't suit me, I'm shopping for replacements. Have to add fenders and racks as after market options, but there are plenty of attachment points. I'll update here when I've added them.
