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."
"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."
"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!"
"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."

"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."
"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,
