    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.

    A few changes made and coming up on around 500mi on it so far.....really love the way it rides and am looking forward to trying some 30mm tubeless tires on it...since they fit, might as well try it out.

    I tend to not post on this forum, but thought I'd add this. Frame designed primarily by Gaulzetti with a couple of very minor tweaks by Neil at Seven. Perfect welding by Stef. Couldn't be happier with this bike.

    Was originally built up with 105 but I wasn't getting on with the shifter shape so made the switch to Chorus 12 and glad I did. It's fantastic. Next on the cards are Chorus cranks when my bank account has recovered! Maybe even sub compact.

    I am trying my best to make this one work for me. Unfortunately, I sold the Chorus gruppo, for which I shall perform ritualistic self-flagellation.

    Will be running Di2 on this, hopefully with 28 mm tires F+R. Right now, there's about 3 mm of clearance from the 28 mm tire to each chainstay, alas "trying my best" part. If this one doesn't work, I'll be using a rim brake Alchemy Eros.
