Seven Axiom XX - Painted Fork & Stem

Architects tend to love conceiving custom bikes. Garry shows us why with his flawless Seven XX


Imagined, re-imagined, weighed, considered. And then painstakingly executed. We love projects like Garry's XX

Garry's Project Seven XX

There are quite a few bikes on this gallery that we have co-authored with architect clients. It is always a reviving process. They understand the choreography of collaboration to achieve something truly original and spectacular - the bending of materials and light to express their will. They trust us to accurately express their biomechanics into an optimal CAD drawing. They trust the factory (in this case Seven) to fabricate with skill and judgement to represent their riding style and weight, in the tubing diameters butting profiles. And trust themselves to stretch aesthetic sinew in order to bring something into existence that will endure. There is no line, tone, shade or hue here, that doesn't exist for the best of all reasons. Because Garry wants it to.


I don't think we will ever get bored of feasting on the details of this bike!


What our clients say

  • "Honestly these are great (custom orthotics). My feet feel totally balanced and stable and I‘m not searching for the pedal when I want to push it. They’ve made a massive difference.”"

    Tom Pidcock

    Olympic MTB Gold Medallist

  • "Julian was very knowledgeable and explained the fitting process very well. He came highly recommended and i completely agree. Very happy with the service. Instantly felt better on the bike. The pain i had in my knee went away right away. "


    Recreational cyclist

  • "A very thorough, professional and personal service. I was keen to analyse my bike position after breaking my hip. The custom footbeds and alterations to my position feel really good, just wish I’d come sooner! Many thanks"


    Endurance MTB rider

  • "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

  • "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!"
