Our friends at Wheat Ridge Cyclery in Colorado did a nice write up on the Evergreen S, and took these photos of the bike with some Rocky Mountain back drop for dramatic effect.
The Seven Evergreen has definitely won us over, it borrows from the performance and passion behind their storied 622SLX titanium lugged carbon bikes and firmly plants itself at the top of the burgeoning gravel bike segment while looking ahead towards the future.
Seven rider, and Rocky Mountain Cycling Club member, Corinne Warren had a nice interview in the Winter 2017 issue of American Randonneur, that ran with some nice photos of her Seven Axiom S. We built this bike for her in 2014 with our friends at Wheat Ridge Cyclery.
Corinne based her Seven on one of Mark Lowe’s bikes. Mark is another Colorado-based rider, organizer of their Triple Crown series, and a serious distance rider.
Corinne had us build her rando bike to be as stiff as possible, a personal preference of hers, and a bit unusual for a randonneuring rig. But that is the beauty of our rider-collaborative process. It ensures you get everything you want from a new bike.

This is Mark’s Evergreen S, delivered by our friends at Wheat Ridge Cyclery.
I never sent you a pic of the new rig!
I love the geometry! Great descending bike and my back is really liking the slightly taller front end!
Here’s the build:
-Chris King Headset, 44 mm
-Whiskey No. 9 fork with through axle and fender mounts (nice stiff fork, but the fender mount is located too close to the head tube and is not compatible with any existing fenders on the market)
-Wheels: DT Swiss 240s hubs laced to Pacenti SL25 rims, Specialized Robaix 32 mm tires (nice tires!)
-Shimano components: Shimano mechanical hydraulic disc brakes, R 685 STI 11-speed levers and RS 785 brake caliper set, Shimano Ice tech rotors, Dura ace compact 50 x 34 crankset, Shimano Ultegra 6800 long cage derailleur, Shimano Dura Ace front derailleur
-Shimano Pro PLT handlebars, Thompson seatpost and bar
-Brooks Cambium C15 carved saddle…nice saddle for me for short distances, but I have a tendency to sit where the rivets are located. So I’ve since put my trustworthy Cobb saddle on this bike as well.
This is Harald’s Cafe Racer S, built with our good friends at Wheat Ridge Cyclery in Wheat Ridge, CO.
There is a lot going on here, including a belt-drive Shimano Alfine 11 drive train, a custom, Ti cockpit, handbuilt wheels with dynamo front hub, disc brakes and matching Brooks saddle and grips. This is a serious commuter/touring machine.

We built this Mudhoney SL with our friends at Wheat Ridge Cyclery in Colorado. It is Michael’s second Seven. A tall rider, with a prior back injury, Michael still loves to ride hard, so we built this one to keep him comfortable while maintaining agility and power transfer in the rear triangle. The bike’s finish, with black components and a bead blasted decal, is subtle, but classy.
I just received my Mudhoney SL, THANKS!!! It’s equipped with Enve 3.4 disc wheels and Ultegra Di2.
Thanks again Seven for fulfilling my cycling dreams!
