Another nice thing about this frame is so far its working well with a 11-30 cassette and a Campy Record 11 short cage.

I was happy to get a chance to try such a rare bike, its not one you see very often and even less so for sale.

Can you offer some thoughts comparing the ride of the Seven to your Speedvagen? Thanks.

Ive been out of town and have not had a chance to ride it, but soon I will spend some time riding the Seven and Speedvagen back to back to compair.


The carbon weave sure is interesting to look at tho, it changes constantly depending on the lighting.

Look at the top tube compared to the down tube in just these 2 photos ......

Great looking bike. Do you have the geometry on the TT slope? Looks to be in the 7-9 degree range?

Yes Matt is right, I have the build sheet from him, its a 9 degree TT slope.

I have been trying different stems a 7 and 10 degree so far and now I have a Deda Superleggero 8 degree coming, we will see what fits best in the end.

Thanks for the info. Again, great looking build. And I know the feeling of trying stem angles/spacers/bar reach to get things "just right."

I found this site to be helpful in playing with things virtually to get a sense of where I'll end up.
