Marc’s Axiom S Fixed Gear Road Bike

Monday, August 17th, 2015

IMG_6896This is Marc’s Axiom S. He wanted it dead simple. Track dropouts. Campy Pista crank. It’s not a track bike, but it has that seething-with-speed thing that track bikes have, while being set up for round-town road riding. Our friends at Velosmith did the build, and it definitely reflects their refined sense of what a bike should look like.

The Headbadge

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

Seven HBThis is our headbadge. It’s one of the very last things to go on a Seven before it leaves our door. Laser-cut and bead-blasted, we think it adds a classy touch to hand-polished titanium, filament-wound carbon fiber and painted steel alike.

It starts flat, like this. Then we clean it up the bead blaster, and we bend it in a hand press depending on the diameter of the bike’s headtube, either 1-1/8″ or 44mm. There is a long and rich tradition of headbadges on handmade frames that goes back more than a century, and it’s one of the small things that we think makes a Seven a Seven.

John’s 622 SLX

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

Here’s a 622 SLX we built with our friends at Bean’s Bikes in Berwyn, PA. This Ti/carbon machine is finished with our Lug Deluxe paint scheme with a special “rattlesnake” finish on the carbon that shows a different color depending on the light and the angle you’re looking from. The decals are a custom Glitter Gold outline.

This is Robert’s new Sola SL 007, a mountain tandem perfect for the Hawaiian back roads and trails Robert wants to explore. The final build looks great.

He says:

I finally got all the parts for my tandem and put it together on the weekend. Took it for it’s maiden voyage today on a short ride here in Maui. It is perfect. Thank you again. 

Now I can plan my next project…

Speak soon

Adam’s Sola SLX 29er

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

This is Adam’s Sola SLX 29er. We built it with Ed and the crew at Web Cyclery in Bend, OR. A bead-blasted decal and new XTR Di2 keep this bike clean and simple, a really nice build. Thanks for working with us, Adam!

He says:

Thank you Seven! Everything is done except the final stem cutting. Notice the wires coming out of the steerer tube. Thank you so much for a very professional and pleasant experience. I will enjoy this bike for many, many years to come!

Thank you,

Adam

P.S Look for it at Sea Otter in the Pro Men’s field!
