American Custom Bicycles in Steel, Titanium and Ti/carbon mix
Raced or not, a cyclocross bike makes for a practical, do-it-all, utilitarian rig. When off the course usage is the design mission of the bike, utility can be taken to the extreme by adding rack and fender mounts, your preferred brake set up, additional tire clearance, a higher bottom bracket. These subtle changes yield an adaptable and perfect, all weather, all terrain bike.
No other Seven, and possibly no other bike, is better suited for versatility than the Mudhoney SL. Enduring, durable, and forgiving enough to be the most ridden bike in your stable, or the one that makes you sell the others. On roads, trails, or worse, a Mudhoney SL never quits.
Hydraulic or cable actuated disc brakes. Low mount discs. Cantilevers and linear pull. You name the brake system, Seven has an optimized cyclocross design for it. Pick the right brake for your style of riding because improved braking control makes you faster.
If you’re using your Seven as a cross-utility bike, it’s helpful to know that every mount option is available: fender and rack mounts, third water bottle mounts, spoke holders. Seven even offers custom-made, size-specific racks—front and rear—that we integrate to your frame.
Racing UCI events? 32c tires—with lots of mud clearance—it is. Looking to use your bike in a variety of riding and racing conditions? Monstercross, for example? 29 x 2.1” tires are not uncommon. Of course, we design for everything in between these two extremes, too.
