Seven Cycles : 622 SLX #002Posted: December 30, 2013 | Author: Aaron Smith | Filed under: New!, News, Photos, Seven | Comments Off on Seven Cycles : 622 SLX #002
Our 2nd Seven Cycles bike is out the door, and boy is it a doozy. Welcome to the wonderful world of Carbon/Ti mixes. Seven threw everything they had at the 622 SLX, using the best of both their areas of expertise and creating something greater than the sum of it’s parts. Titanium lugs add strength, ride quality and just a hint of nostalgia to an otherwise space-age frame set. The carbon tubes are crafted individually to provide the right amount of flexibility and stiffness depending on where they connect. Combined, they create something completely new – a ride quality that stands separate from any Titanium or Carbon frame on the market.
So of course we had to do it right. With Zipp Firecrest 404’s holding it up and brand-new SRAM Red22 11-speed gruppo providing the drivetrain it’s a speed demon. Chris King headset (naturally), and some Wet White Ritchey WCS components to continue the white lugs outside of the double-diamond shape.
All in all, a truly great bike. Russell came to us looking to make his dreams come true, and with Seven we were able to nail them down and make them a reality. I can’t wait to see where he goes with it. Thanks for coming by Russell and enjoy!
