Design Mission: Create the most capable four season bike possible. As cyclists we are keenly aware of the weather and the many challenges it presents. Any cyclist who lives in an area that experiences four true seasons, like our home here in Massachusetts, will want a bike capable of tackling whatever the weather throws at them.
After building about a dozen variants of a year-round bike, we packed all our experience and research into this one broad-use, high-capability bike.
For summer and fall, with 29er mountain tires, the bike is a fast and agile race-ready bike, setup for technical single-track and short, punchy climbs. In the winter and spring, with 27+ 3” tires, the bike can do anything and go anywhere, with or without studs, in snow, ice, mud, or frozen terrain.

This is Rik’s Sola S 29er, built monster cross style. We partnered with our good friends at Cyclefit in London for this one.
Picked up Tuesday. Built Weds/Thurs. Ridden Saturday!!
Proper good. Def. not gravel, or road-plus, this is proper monster cross!! Very happy man!!
Most bike shops can put a bike together, but a fine few have the vision, knowledge, and discerning eye to build great bikes. Our friends at Cyclefit UK (Covent Garden, London and Manchester’s Northern Quarter) are just such an operation, and here are two recent builds to illustrate our point.
First we have Johannes’ Sola SL 29er, which I’m sure you’ll agree, is beautifully proportioned, well appointed, and aesthetically striking, with bead-blasted “decaling,” a Ti seatpost and wide/short cockpit.
Next we offer Richard’s Evergreen SLX. Richard has gone for the low-profile blasted decal as well, with no wheel decals, a low, clean fender line and an eTap drive train. There’s likely not a more elegant bike in London.
This is Brad’s Sola SL, built with our buddy Manuel at Maglia Rosa NYC.
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.
Last week, Seven-sponsored mountain bike racer Mary McConneloug took the overall title in the elite women’s field at the 2013 Pan American Continental Championships. The race was held in the high mountain valley basin in the small town of Tafi de Valle, Argentina. Both Mary and teammate/husband Michael Broderick, who also competed, arrived 10 days early to acclimate to the higher altitude and prepare for the challenge as best as they could.
This is Mary’s 4th Continental Champion Title in the past 10 years riding a custom Seven.
Mary reported to us after her win saying:
“My IMX 29er was incredible once again… and especially fast as she lost a bit of weight (over a pound) when we installed SRAMs XX1 components… It was surely a team effort! THANK YOU all at Seven Cycles for your commitment to building the best bikes on the market! We are honored to represent!”

Congratulations to Mike and Mary for another amazing win. We are proud to have you as representatives of the Seven Cycles team.
