Tom loves this bike. Even if he didn’t tell us so in so many words, he wrote this about it:
Scarlet Seven is a fully custom touring bicycle assembled by Ride Studio Cafe, Lexington MA. Scarlet was born on 27 September 2015. Scarlet has a Seven Cycles titanium Expat SL frame and a steel Waterford Uni-fork. Scarlet has Shimano Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes and Di2 gear shifting with 36:46 chain rings and 11:32 cassette. Scarlet also has a Schmidt SON Deluxe SL Disc dynamo electric hub, a Schmidt Edelux II headlight and Busch & Muller Toplight Line Plus taillight. Scarlet has a Tubus Tara front rack and a Tubus Cosmo rear rack on which Ortieb Front-Roller Classic and Back-Roller Classic panniers ride. Scarlet is a great bike for touring.
Tom also takes great photos. Here are just a few:
Took it out to Trail View State Park and Stillwell Woods Park on Saturday with my son Josh (12). First time back in the woods after a long time, but the bike made it great; it was super comfortable, and the 29” wheels rolled over everything. The only thing holding me back was me – definitely not the equipment. I’ve put some pictures below; can’t wait for next weekend. Thanks again for an incredible job on the frame – truly beautiful welds – and props to the guys at Maglia Rosa for an awesome build.
Here are a pair of Sevens, for husband and wife, built with our friends at High Gear Cyclery in New Jersey. The Evergreen PRO just left our doors a few weeks ago, and we got this photo and nice note last week:
Called this ride the Everhoney!
Rode it tonight with my wife on her Mudhoney on some gravel roads by me. Thank you for getting this to me so fast…it was an early Christmas present to myself!
