Martin’s 622 SLX

Here is Martin’s 622 SLX, with custom komodo pink paint. The guys at Bicycle Speed Shop in Houston delivered it for us.

Seven,

Hi! Hope all is well and that you are building bicycles like crazy. Yesterday Brian came to Mexico (to visit his brother) and brought my beautiful Seven 622 SLX in person. I am still out of words and I have a very jealous wife & kids back home. Today I had my professional fitting done and the fitter was out of words too. Attached a few pictures of the final build. Please thank everyone at Seven for their masterful work.

Al the best and warmest regards,

Martin

Kevin’s Evergreen SL

This is Kevin’s Evergreen SL, a bike we built with the good folks at Spin City Cycles in Decatur, IL. We had built him and his wife a tandem previously.

This bike features a red, black and bare Ti Dart paint scheme and matching silver Chris King headset and Alloy Ride wheelset.

Kevin sent this, and the following note, below, just this week:

Seven,

The bike is here and it is gorgeous. I went for my first ride this morning and I wanted to tell you it feels EXACTLY right. You absolutely achieved my somewhat paradoxical request for a fast efficient bike fitting wide tires with fenders, kickstand too! It’s amazing just how lively it is, I’m definitely another happy customer. Some gratuitous pictures attached.

Thanks again,

Kevin

In the Korean Snow

It is hard to overstate the relationship we have with our friends at ES Korea, who approached us at Interbike nearly two decades ago and have become key collaborators over the years, delivering hundreds of bikes and pushing us daily to be better at what we do.

Here is a project we worked on with them recently, a Treeline SL for Y.K.R., who wanted his bike to look great, but also to be set up for serious, year-round riding. Check out the way the chain matches the paint. Y.K.R. is our kinda guy.

Like Elves

When you make things (like elves), you find very quickly that there is never a time when someone doesn’t want you to make something. And so, we have had a very busy December here at Seven. Rather than wax rhapsodic about the spirit of the season, let us just say how grateful we are to be able to make things people want (like elves do), and wish you all a happy holiday season.

Here are some brief scenes from shop this week:

Joe’s Expat SL

Here is a do-everything touring machine we built for Joe with our friends at Spokes, Etc. in Alexandria, VA. This Expat SL incorporate S&S couplings, front and rear rack & fender mounts, a kickstand, Rohloff belt drive, generator hub, extra water bottle mount and a pump peg. We like this build because it really demonstrates the extent to which a rider can personalize a Seven to produce what is, for them, the ultimate bike for the purpose (or many purposes).
