"Of all the base metals, titanium is easily the most truculent when it comes to releasing its magical properties"

Has Titanium Reached Peak-Innovation?

Titanium, like steel and aluminum is a defined material (unlike carbon fibre, which is a composite of materials). This means that titanium has pre-prescribed properties that relate to how it performs - weight, stiffness, resilience, toughness, durability etc.

Over the decades, engineers have alchemised all of the base metals to try and fractionally increase performance. The bicycle frame is the perfect microcosm test-tube of material performance, because of the inherent constraint of human power.

Of all the base metals, titanium is easily the most truculent when it comes to releasing its magical properties. Most high quality ti frames now use a cocktail of 3% aluminium 2.5% vanadium and 94.5% titanium, as the optimal performance formula - commonly known as 3AL-2.5V.

More than just a headbadge. A life's work for Rob Vandermark. The world's foremost Ti innovator

The Godfather of Titanium

Seven Cycles have have made it their life's work to cautiously coax innovation from the world's grumpiest metal. And within Seven Cycles nobody is more respected for his contribution than founder, Rob Vandermark.

This Axiom XX is the current apotheosis of all his hard work. It is the lightest disc-brake ti bike we have ever built (7.5kg) - the same weight as a gen7 Trek Madone by the way. This iconic Seven Axiom sings custom-made from every pore - frame, saddle, seat-post, seat-clamp and wheels.

But is there more to come or have we reached peak-titanium. One thing is for damn sure Rob will keep pushing forwards, but he is also rightly cautious and would never do anything to prejudice a Seven's hallowed reputation and lifetime warranty.

What our clients say

  • "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."

  • "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+)

  • "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."

  • "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. "
