Elium SLX & Elium SL

Formally Elium, Elium Race, Elium SG, Odonata

“I've been riding my [Elium SLX] for a few weeks now. Initially I was skeptical, feeling how light it is and thin the fork blades are (coming from an all steel 22 pound bike.) Well I am amazed at what an incredible ride it is! It fits perfectly too. I think the coolest part is that it feels completely new and different while still allowing me to feel right at home on it.”

David A., Wyoming

“I'm continually amazed at what a difference this [Elium SLX] frame makes in my riding pleasure and performance. I've come to believe that there is a fountain of youth and it's called Seven.”

Brian F., Massachusetts

“ I rode my new [Elium SLX] about 35 miles on the North Shore today with my usual posse and the general consensus is that I am faster, stronger—and certainly much more cool!”

Lynn K., Massachusetts

“It took me an entire year to fall in love with my wife, 18 months before I asked her to get married… It took me 1 day and 1 ride to fall in love with my [Elium SLX] Seven. Is that normal? ”

Greg L., Florida

“Well… I took the maiden voyage on the beautiful [Elium SLX] that you all built for me yesterday. What can I say, WOW! The bike is absolutely wonderful. Everything we talked about in terms of ride quality/characteristics was a homerun. ”

Bruce R., Colorado

“I just wanted to follow-up with you and tell you how much I appreciate your time in configuring my [Elium SLX]. Am I happy with the bike? More than happy and that is an understatement. I've logged only 50 miles on it so far, but this bike is the most comfortable, yet most responsive bike I have ever ridden. ”

Michael T., Texas

“Well, I finally received my bike. A custom fitted Seven [Elium SLX]! Firstly, it is very clear, even to a neophyte, how beautifully engineered and carefully built the bike is. It is obvious that everyone at Seven takes great pride in their work. Well done!”

David V., Canada

“I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how pleased I am with my new Seven [Elium SL]. It rides like a dream and I really feel natural when I'm on it. Above all, I want to thank both you and Seven Cycles for taking the time to work with me throughout the whole process.”

Ray C., Florida

“Michelangelo and da Vinci gave us new standards in art and architecture. Stradivari created stringed instruments which are unparalleled in history. Hasselblad took photography to another level of excellence. The Seven [Elium SL] ranks equally high in the list of innovative excellence.”

Dan R., California

“I can honestly say that Seven has exceeded my expectations in all areas, and look forward to riding my [Elium SL] for many, many years to come.”

Mark H., Ohio

“I want to thank you for the best bicycling experience I have ever had. My new [Elium SL] is the best bike I have ever ridden, and the envy of all my biking friends.”

Frederick L., Massachusetts

“My new custom [Elium SL] could use up all the positive adjectives in the thesaurus. The fit is perfect. The ride beyond words.”

Charles F., Maryland

“I want to thank you all for building me the finest bike I've ever owned. I can't come up with enough superlatives to describe it. The ride is so smooth, the handling is just awesome, and the bike just seems alive when I get out of the saddle and hammer a hill or sprint for that next mailbox. Again, a big thank you to everyone at Seven for building my dream bike.”

Chris L., Ohio

“This week I saw the frame for the first time and was just bowled over by it. Very beautiful work, very beautiful design, I'm a very happy bunny.”

Jon F., England

“I couldn't be happier. I'm not sure it's really even fully sunk in. I'm convinced I'll have a masterpiece that will be with me for as long as I can manage to turn the cranks. They'll probably bury me with it.”

Dan C., Colorado

“I have been riding since '75 and during that time I have worked in bike shops for over 15 years. The [Elium SL] is by far the best machine I have been on. Keep up the fine work.”

Ken M., Ohio
