    My Mudhoney S commuter is about to get its studded tires for winter here in Manitoba. Love this bike so much.

    Here are two Sevens. I'll post some closeups of the purple one because, well, I love it.

    Next project - a new-to-me near NOS 2018 Seven 622 SLX.

    It takes the general fit parameters from my recent 56cm Mxxxxxo I loved so much, but lengthens the front a bit to a reasonable point for my 6'3" self.

    73-STA, 73.5-HTA. 583-TT. 515-ST (ctc). 15.2-HT. 68-Drop. 41.7-CS. 59.6-FC.

    I'm very curious what the Seven build sheet specs would be on their 1-10 scale for handling, rigidity, etc.

    Shown w a 130mm stem and my saddle at normal 83cm - drop is ~11-12cm and I have room to go down a bit. I may not need a 130mm on here - 120mm might get it done, maybe a -10 or -12 - we'll see.

    This was a quick build that will change up a bit after I've had a chance to put in a few miles - I have some K-Force sub-compact cranks for it, K-Force post, and FSA KOM carbon tubeless wheels - wanting this to be a "climbing" bike - light and nimble for enjoying riding in the west hills of Portland while I'm still here.

    I don't love the look of the fork, but I do love the production quality and remember loving the feel of the last one I rode.

    This bike is a lot of fun. It's smooth and fast. Very stable and confident at speed. And I love the sound it makes - the resonance of the frame is muted and kind of sings.

    The seatpost is a Moots that was brushed to the current finish and matches perfectly (saddle nose nudged down a hair climbing and I had to correct it after the photo). I went to a 120mm stem and no spacers - feels better that way. I'd take a 1/2 cm off the TT still and run a 130mm on it. I think that is my grail fit. 73-STA, 57.5ish TT, and 18-ish headtube (including headset stack). So basically a 57.5 Dogma F8, with more tire clearance.

    Up next is a crank swap and trying out the Vision KOM tubeless wheels that are like 1200g and 26mm wide. Gotta search for a 120mm x -10deg brushed Ti stem too.

    Got the front shifter off the handlebars on my Mudhoney and into the generator position from the Mariposas I’ve always admired.
