Seven Evergreen SL with Zipp wheels

Seven Evergreen SL with Zipp wheels

Evergreen Sl Newcombe 1

This build was for the 2018 Etape du Tour and to get Matt riding comfortably again. He had had some bikefits before but the fitters had been unable to get him sitting properly on a stock bike due to a scoliosis (curvature of the spine). He needed a bike with the seat tube of a 58cm frame and a top tube of a 54cm bike. So we built him a bike with both so he could start training and get around the Etape du Tour in one piece, both of which we can say he did!

This Seven Evergreen SL is a fine example of custom simplicity, the double butted tubeset is finished with a blasted Seven logo and head tube badge. The groupset is Shimano Ultegra Hydro mechanical and to beef it up a bit we added a pair of Zipp deep section wheels.

"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."

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."

  • "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"

  • "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, Hannah"

  • "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!"

  • "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 "
