    EC70 bars, poor mans carbon! And now with boras. I think the shamals and boras will share time depending on weather, i just had the Mavics handy that first day. Im really enjoying it so far, more nimble and lighter than my goodrich. it feels natural. all good things. Ill bet this bike gets some Record and lighter brakes in the future.

    Mid-winter makeover by Justin at Black Oak Velo. Switched over to tubeless, re-installed the fenders and modified the electricals for the dyno hub to incorporate a USB charging circuit. The little wire coming off near the top of the fork goes to the SineWave box, which in turn charges your device. Everything I've read says its more efficient to charge a cache battery than the phone directly, so that's what I'll be doing. I ditched the Garmin last season in favor of my smart phone which has much more functionality in terms of navigation.

    Justin did the original build of this bike and, as you'd expect, the recent modifications are top notch. The frame itself has proven to be amazingly versatile. It started life as a traditional 700c bike and was mod'd to 650B a couple of years ago. It's still going strong. Best bike ever.

    I have the same fenders. They’re really great at their job. The ultra low trailing flaps helps keep your feet and drivetrain as clean as they can be in sloppy conditions. Love everything about that one.

    Sorry for the weird photos but I'm very excited about my new Evergreen. Jess Bratus, in photo one, helped organize and design it. I think she likes it as much as I do. Ovalized top tube because I'm kind of heavy. Asymetric chain stays. Ultegra Di2 Shifters. 11-40 XTR RD with White Industries bottom bracket, crank arms and chain ring. (42t)

    Jess was showing it off at a show she was holding so I did not take it home. Thanks Seven!!

    Jess rules. She is one of maybe three or four people in the entire world I would trust a custom bike project with. If I were ever to have a fit issue I could not solve on my own- she'd be the person I'd reach out to before just about anyone. In fact- I do reach out to her when I'm challenged with an athlete sometimes just to check myself.

    Anyway- I won't tell her you posted that picture.

    Can someone speak to the right chainstay design? I'm sure there's a purpose for this but I'm not seeing it. Also, I like the added braze-on. I assume that's in case the owner wishes to install a fender?

    It’s a dropped chainstay. It allows for wider tire clearance with short chainstays. It’s like a geometry brain teaser. Since the chainring is a circle, the lower the chainstay is from the center of the circle, the further forward (and outward) that chainstay meets the circle. There’s a discussion of it here:

    Dropped chainstay thoughts

    A lot of the newfangled “gravel” bikes have them, like the Open. From a stiffness perspective, I would think that it’s easier to execute in carbon than in metal. Some builders in metal solve the problem by using a 3-D printed yoke (e.g., Firefly, Baum, etc.).

    I have that same chainstay and fender boss configuration.
    It allows for short chainstay length, big tire clearance, proper crank and chainring clearance, and fender mounting.

    I don't have the curved seat tube as I wanted to run my bike as a double- Seven does not endorse the curved seat tube with a front derailleur.

    I just got mine built up, its a no compromise CX race machine. These men and women are sooo good and making bikes. The power transfer is something like i've never felt before. It begs to be sprinted. Liam had an amazing idea to do the chopped chainstay so we could run massive 1" chainstay, with a double, clearance for 33's with mud or 35's w/ out, all this with a 419mm chainstay length. I marked the "10" on drivetrain stiffness, no regrets there. I did my first race on it and the handling is great. My weakness has always been tight and slow corners and they did a great job at improving that. It also hops very easy.

    Also, the tubes are very big.

    Surprising comfortable on the bumpy stuff, much smoother than a alloy trek crockett for example, yet stiffer pedaling than either the crocket or boone I owned. Everything I have owned has felt mushy in comparison to this.
