American Custom Bicycles in Steel, Titanium and Ti/carbon mix
The Sola S 29 built here in La Mesa is truly an amazing jaw-dropping ride. I cannot say how wonderful it is to ride the Sola S 29er—it feels like I am surfing or skating on ice vs. bumping over obstacles—amazing cornering at high and slow speeds down or up switchbacks. I never did rear wheelies before and these just happen naturally going around obstacles making me feel like a rabbit bounding through our tunnels here. This was way more than I thought I was getting in a frame—what a nice 50th Birthday gift from my parents. Thanks again for the 29er.

I finally was able to ride my new [Sola SL] this weekend on some actual singletrack. It is truly awesome!! I have owned many bikes over the years and ridden many others, but the bike rides exactly as I described during the interview process.

The [Sola SL] is absolutely the finest hard-tail race bike ever made.

I just wanted to drop a note of praise for my custom titanium [Sola SL] I received this past spring. I had planned on using this bike for "technical" rides before work, and using my full suspension work horse for everything else, fearing that I would get fatigued and beat up on a 3-hour Sunday morning ride on a hard-tail. I have since hung a "for sale" sign on my full suspension bike.

I just wanted to thank everyone at Seven for the excellent job done on my [Sola SL]. It rides exactly as I had hoped it would, and the craftsmanship is remarkable. My friend remarked that he thought it belonged in an art exhibit.

I thought I would let you know how awesome the [Sola SL] is after its first race. I brought home a trophy for 3rd place in the old guy expert class, 8th overall. It is exactly what I needed, the position is perfect and it's the smoothest bike I've ever ridden.
My Sola [...] handles like a dream, cuts up single track with ease far beyond my skill level, has the perfect blend of smooth ti and stiff efficient power transfer. In short, my [Sola SL] is AWESOME.

My [Sola SL] is by far the best riding bike I have ever ridden! It inspires confidence on the climbs and slices-n-dices through the tight singletrack. It accelerates like a bat-out-of-hell and begs to be ridden hard. I've always loved climbing, but climbing with this sweet bike takes on a whole new experience--one that cannot be put into words. In the tight and twisties is where this bike really shines--definitely a point and shoot bike! Of course these are all my experiences with a bike that I had spec'd to suit me and my riding style. It fits me like a glove!

...it is really a joy to ride each and every time on that bike, whether on an epic ride or just out with my little boy, it's a pleasure. You can be sure that I am letting people know, whether they want to or not, about how much I love the [Sola SL]. I spent top dollar, but am glad I did.
