Anyone missing a Seven Axiom?

I just bought an Axiom from a shady character for $115 in my neighborhood just because i knew it had to have been stolen. The setup is ridiculous. I cant wait to post pics once I can find someone who can describe the frame.

Im sure its someone local to Boston but I figured id post on here in case they they dont see my craigslist ad. I'll probably contact Seven as well.

Welp that was quick. Called Seven and they were able to find the owner by the serial number. Already spoked with the original owner and I am meeting him friday. This guy butchered this bike...

Gripshifters ftw!

Hope you get at least $115 back.

My eyes hurt from looking at that thing.

I feel like I saw that bike years ago outside of Belmont Wheelworks

A distinctive size for sure

The aesthetic criticisms here are ridiculous. I realize that they are "semi-ha-ha", but who really cares, especially in this particular story? I'm sure that some people here would have just said, "Cool! Only $115! Man, am I ever going to flip this baby on Paceline Forum!"

Instead, the owner will be reunited with his bicycle, through fantastic thought and follow-through by the OP who acted so quickly and responsibly. Bravo, bravissimo, fmradio516.

Stealing bikes is evil. Reunification is a beautiful thing.

Great work!

You'd think that a bike as big as that would not attract a thief.

WHOA

I know this bike. I cant recall who the owner is anymore ... but when i was at RSC in lexington, he came through looking to replacing it ... that long A headtube and bright red color way give no doubts.

good on ya!

I'm not sure flipping that is realistic. Can't be many people that are going to fit that thing. That said - thanks for being a good citizen of the bike community and burning calories (and potentially some of your own cash) to reunite someone with their bike. Particularly somebody that that clearly needs custom geometry to get them out enjoying the sport. I don't think the owner will be rolling on a stock option any time soon if that is representative of their fit needs.
