Seven Axiom SL All-Weather Road Bike

A bike for all seasons

Seven axiom all weather 1

Firstly, apologies for the blurry pics, it was so dark outside when we took the photos but we needed to take them before the bike was sent off to its new owner.

This is a new mix on Seven's popular double butted SL frame incorporating internal brake hose routing and the 7/8" chainstays. Overall the bike is comfortable, quite and compliant. The tubing is selected based on the rider's weight by Seven Cycles to give their legendary magic carpet ride even over them roads of North Kent.

The groupset is SRAM Force AXS eTap Disc with Quarq powermeter, accurate and easy shifting with the large paddles even with your winter gloves on. The wheels are carbon Bontrager Aeolus Pro 3v's using DT Swiss hub internals and with an internal width of 25mm to fit wide tyres, in this case Schwalbe's Pro One's in 30mm. The large air chamber means increased air volume so more sealant can be put in for better puncture protection.

The cockpit is a combination of Bontrager Elite stem and carbon seatpost, the bars are Zipp Service Course SL short reach to compensate for the large SRAM shifters that would normally increase the reach.

Full SKS mudguards for rain protection; even when its raining if your bum is dry and you don't have spray in your face off the front wheel the experience is much better.

This bike was built using the owner's earlier fit data from a previous Cyclefit, we keep everything on file.

Overall, a very nice bike but not too nice to ride through the winter!

"Popped out for 45 mins in rain, flooded roads, mud and perfect conditions for a test drive of a winter bike, the conditions it was designed for! Fit was millimetre perfect and like getting on an old friend. Took a 5mm torque key and didn’t even use it ! First impressions were fab - tons of grip on the tyres, super brakes, lighter, real spring in the frame, lots of range on gears, mudguards a blessing. It’s a real magic carpet ride, super comfortable. It’s a big step forward over classic Indyfab, as I wanted. Thank you so much, feel very privileged to get all your collective expertise and lucky to get the bike given the difficulty to get parts and frames."

What our clients say

  • "I'm new to cycling so needed some support on finding a bike that would be right for me. Julian couldn't have been kinder or more supportive, he took time to find out what I wanted from my cycling and then looked closely at my physical structure to ensure that the bike is a comfortable fit for me. It really is a 5 star service and far exceeded my expectations."

  • "Thanks very much Phil. Did an 80 mile sportive yesterday on the road bike - perfect set up thanks; I've never been so comfortable, and no after effects! Cheers, Ian "

    Time-Triallist (70+)

  • "A great service, full of personal touches as well as the "harder" scientific analysis of my position on the bike, which was also excellent. I feel more planted on the bike now, and came away with some really useful feedback from the session."

    Ed H

    London Dynamo Rider

  • "The personal service from both Phil and Julian is second to none. They have such a wealth of experience in fitting that they can almost tell at a glance if something is just a little off. It felt as though it didn't matter how long it took to get the best position possible - even for an amateur cyclist like myself. Can't recommend them enough."

    Susan

    Cyclist

  • "Rode my standard Box Hill loop this morning with the temp shims and more thought to position. Felt more connected and compact on the bike. Fastest ride of the year, picked up close to a km/per hour despite crappy wet pot holed roads, a ton of traffic and a couple of nights out Thu/Fri."
