Seven titanium road frame with Mono seatstay, 1" chainstay and XV upgrade
A fine - if not superb - example of Seven's skills at building a modern titanium frame and yours truly's skills at designing frames for our customers based on their Cyclefit measurements. The frame is a Seven Axiom SL Disc that uses double butted titanium tubes and is upgraded with the 'XV' package that includes 1" chainstays for power transfer and complimented with the Mono Seatstays to add compliance for the rider. The bottom bracket and headtube are CNC'd to remove excess material to help reduce the wight and the tubes also receive extra butting too.
This bike is designed for solo and group riding all year round and has the option of fitting mudguards, the fork used is the Enve AR which offers a little more clearance and has the mudguard mounts; the geometry was conceived to keep the ride lively and stable and by all reports it achieves both. The groupset is SRAM Red eTap with Fizik finishing kit and DT Swiss DICUT wheels with Schwalbe Pro One 28mm tubless tyres.
The titanium finish is 'natural' with blasted panels on the down tube, seat tube and seat stays.
"The weekend was great thanks and just got back from another spin in the glorious sunshine, (shorts and short sleeves 🌞👍.
Only one word to describe the bike “sublime”.
It is comfortable, handles superbly and is quick as well. Everything is working nicely, just had to adjust the headset as the bearings have settled in now."
"I tried the shorter cranks today and I like them - it feels like it's less stress for the back and it seems easier to ride higher cadence. In the end I had a good Tour with no back problems. Thanks for your help!"
"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."

"Hey Julian and Phil,
I hope you are both well.
I just completed a 21 hour week on my new 165mm cranks and I am in love. They feel so so great!
Thank you for all your help. I’ve never felt so comfortable on my bike before.
All the best,
National Champion / Professional Bike Rider

Whatever your riding discipline (for me it’s road, gravel and MTB) the team in Covent Garden will find the right build for you. All this is built around a pro level bike fit and detailed component selection. Add to this the important items often overlooked beyond the bike itself such as shoes, insoles and saddle pressure mapping and it’s a full service operation."
"Thanks very much for consultation last week - since I saw you I do not have anything like the same amount of pain I was experiencing previously. I am so much more at ease with my new positioning and my posture feels right now."
