U.S. Built Custom Bicycles in Titanium and Titanium-Carbon Mix

Seven’s Gravel Bikes

Seven has been building gravel bikes for more than 20 years, although in the early days they were all built on our race-winning Mudhoney cyclocross platform. When we introduced our Evergreen gravel bikes in 2012, it was really a matter of capturing the dirt-loving zeitgeist with a model name and a renewed focus on what a purpose-built gravel bike could be. Every year since that introduction we’ve evolved the Evergreen with gravel-specific forks and cutting-edge features like dropped and chopped chainstays. We won Best Gravel Bike at the North American Handbuilt Bike Show in 2019, a confirmation that we’re at the forefront of gravel bike design.

As with all the bikes we do, there is a dizzying amount of choice, but relax, we’re here to guide you. We’ve put together some value-packed packages to simplify things, or, if you want to dig deep into the details, we’re happy to go along on your design adventure, too.

Why Choose Seven’s Evergreen Gravel Platform?

When ‘gravel’ first emerged as a category we were bemused. We’d been building drop-bar bikes to ride off-road for decades already. The advent of good disc brakes changed the game, though. Suddenly, we weren’t making all-day riding cyclocross bikes anymore, we were into something new, and we loved it. We have built thousands of gravel bikes over the last 7 seasons, in an astounding array of configurations, for riders all over the planet.

Seven has a wider and deeper range of gravel bikes than most companies, large or small. What makes our gravel bikes different is:

  1. Gravel Design Experience: We’ve designed and built more than 30,000 bikes in the last 22 years, and unlike big companies that design a handful of models in each category, every gravel bike we’ve done is like a model of one. So we’ve done thousands of designs, all of them out in the world, being ridden hard, every day.
  2. True Custom: We start with your ideas, the places you’ll ride, how you like the bike to handle, and what features you want to incorporate. Disc brakes or mid-reach rim calipers. 700c or 650b wheels. Meaningful parts integration.
  3. A Deeper Tool Kit: This includes asymmetric rear triangles, multiple chainstay diameters, dropped and chopped chainstays, curved seat tubes, all the pieces you need to put together your perfect gravel bike.
  4. Titanium: It’s tough, durable, enhances comfort and handling performance, impervious to weather.

Choosing the right wheel size: 650b or 700c

The current hot setup for gravel is bikes that work with both 700c and 650b wheels. We offer dual wheel designs in four bike series:

Also, Seven builds every model in either wheel size. We build each bike to order so we can deliver what’s truly best for you with no other agenda.

Determining your ideal gravel bike wheel size is fairly straightforward. We expect most to choose 700c, although smaller riders will enjoy 650b with no sacrifice to their ride experience. Some riders like a bike designed to take both sizes. They’ll choose 700c for “normal” conditions and move to 650b when things get rougher, because they can run a larger volume tire.

Race Bike Classification

Whether you’re signed up for today’s new breed of gravel races or you just like to go fast over any surface, our gravel race classification is where you want to be. These are our lightest and most agile gravel bikes. We also dig into our gravel engineering tool kit to apply our most progressive design elements to these bikes.

Gravel Race Max

Super-fast, ultralight, agile

Titanium Evergreen XX optimzed for 700c x 40 mm tires

Seven’s XX series is the absolute lightest design we offer. For those who want a bike to take on the wildly varying conditions of today’s premier gravel race events, like Dirty Kanza, the Belgian Waffle Ride, the Landrun 100, Barry Roubaix, D2R2, or Rasputitsa. The Gravel Race Max packs features into an ultralight frame. The chopped drive side chainstay produces our shortest wheelbase, while maintaining clearance for 40 m tries. The XX butted titanium frame tubing adds to the bike’s dynamic compliance and gives the rider the ability to “body” the bike in any conditions. Short chainstays add traction and acceleration to the mix. See the full bike series details here.

Gravel Race Paradigm

Titanium Evergreen SL optimzed for 700c x 45 mm tires

Race-tuned, smooth, solid

The Paradigm is a balance of speed and handling. This bike features an asymmetric, “dropped” drive-side chainstay, to keep the rear of the bike short, enhancing acceleration and handling agility. Seven’s Moto seat stays, curved in three planes, add both comfort and traction. If you’re looking for one race bike to do it all, this is probably the bike. Contact us to learn more about this bike.

Gravel Race Grinder

Titanium Evergreen S optiized for both 700c x 40 mm & 650b x 47 mm tires

Endurance racing, stable, durable

This bike evolves the classic gravel bike with an asymmetric, “dropped” drive-side chainstay, to keep the rear of the bike short, enhancing acceleration and handling agility. The Gravel Race Grinder’s straight-gauge titanium is tough enough to handle anything you can throw at it. Contact us to learn more about this bike.

Explorer Bike Classification

Our Explorer Class gravel bikes are what you’ve come to expect when you think gravel bike. Geometries are aimed at comfort and capability. Chain and seat stays are symmetrical and in-line to produce an intuitive ride experience. Proven. Simple. Forever bikes. Everything you need and nothing you don’t.

Explorer Fun

Titanium Evergreen S optimized for 700c x 45 mm tires

Predictable, stable, comfortable

A proven design takes the full array of desired characteristics and places them in balance with one another, balancing long ride comfort against maximized power transfer, and light weight against long term ruggedness. See the full bike series details here.

All Road All Day Max

Titanium Evergreen XX optimized for 700c x 45 mm tires

Fast, light, balanced handling

All Road All Day Paradigm

Titanium Evergreen SL optimized for both 700c x 40 mm & 650b x 47 mm tires

Fast, smooth, balanced performance

The ARAD Paradigm ups the game with asymmetric 1” chainstays, producing a drivetrain 50-60% stiffer than a typical titanium frame. That added efficiency really pays off the farther you get from home. Double-butted frame tubing makes the rest of the frame comfortable enough to sustain all-day efforts without leaving you bodily exhausted. See the full bike series details here.

All Road All Day Grinder

Titanium Evergreen S optimized for both 650b x 51 mm & 700c x 45 mm tires

Stable, versatile, tough

The proverbial Swiss-Army Knife of bikes. Do anything, anytime, anywhere. The asymmetric drop outs and chainstays lighten the frame and stiffen the drivetrain. Straight Gauge titanium makes the most durable frame in our lineup. Contact us to learn more about this bike.
