    This is my ti Seven. I like color.

    It's also a really wonderful bike, color aside.

I bought it because it was my size, a good price, looked like a good bike - husband and friends also said it was a good value. It's a nice bike, light and stiff enough and comfy. Had it for two and a half years now.

    Husband and I also bought a Ti Santana tandem last summer and we've put over 4000 miles on it. We love it and get compliments on it every time we take it out. It's much lighter than the steel one we had before, and it's polished and shiny.
    MojoGrrl, any pictures of either bike yet?

    This is my Lynskey 2014 ProCross. Ultegra 6800, disc brakes. Rides like a dream. I can't praise the bike or the company enough!

    This is a circa 2001 (?) Pro Mongoose Sandvig Titanium bike, converted to a 32/16 singlespeed.
    It originally belonged to a friend of mine, one of the gals who I learned to ride by following her everywhere. At some point she was trying to sell it and I mentioned that I thought it would be a good SS project. She is also a MD, I should mention. The next time I went to see for an appointment, she had it in the office. She said that she knew if I came that she should give it to me.

    I put a much lighter fork on, and stripped it down to a 21# trail-dancing machine. I would love to be able replace the decals, and to pimp it out with orange ano but from what I can find the ano stuff is geared towards new mountain bike and doesn't fit old school stuff.

    Here we go:

    That, is a very cool bike. Are you thinking orange anodized rims? Is the problem that you can't get them with brake tracks since everything is disc now? Have you thought about having disc tabs added to the frame? I have a couple of friends that have done that to older model bikes to bring them up to date. The Ti guy they used was in Portland OR.

    I haven't really looked into but I know going that route is lots of money. Rims, brakes, nipples, bar end caps, headset.; sizes have changed, brakes have changed...If I had unlimited funds I might do all that but going disc and them some would be a really frivolous and huge expense for me. I only ride it a handful of times every year so I can live with it as it is. Decals would be cool, though.

    I hope to have a photo of my new über-bike in another 7-8 weeks. A week ago I was fit for a Seven Mudhoney SL. Next week I'll be doing my phone interview with Seven, then their designers will come up with a frame design and I'll have my fit bike fitting. After my approval it will go into production!

    My bike will for sure have Ultegra Di2, hydro disc brakes, and most likely a Whiskey #9 thru-axel fork. Bare Ti with bead-blasted Seven logo and I'm planning to get a green saddle (my fave, SMP Drakon), green bottle cage, tape, etc. 2 sets of rims -- 1 mounted with road tires (probably Rolfs) and 1 with CX tires (Velocity, perhaps. I love my current A23s), so I can easily swap wheels depending upon where I want to ride.

    I'm pretty stinkin' stoked!!

    Woot, ETA is first week of Aug. I am stoked! Geometry of the new bike will be about midway between that of my current road bike and Redline CX bike -- exactly what I always suspected would be ideal. Now to get a new saddle, pedals, shoes, and other random bits!

    First mostly complete photo of "Toothless" (named for the dragon in How To Train Your Dragon):


    We're still dialing in the fit a little. The original stem was just a hair short (not so bad when I was on the hoods, but in the drops I feel pretty cramped). Some of that extra steerer tube will likely come off, too, once fit is dialed-in. And after that the permanent medium gray Lizard Skins bar tape will go on.

    But other than those details he's done. I've already logged 90 miles and it's a really cush ride. Amazing how much Ti dulls the rattle of chipseal. Even better than my carbon SuperSix, which already was fairly comfortable on rougher roads. Ti feels a lot like steel to me. And I LOVE the hydro disc brakes! They stop like a boss...but not in a scary, grabby way. Great modulation. Can't wait to ride it in a muddy CX race to see how they work under the same conditions that made my canti brakes on my low-rent Redline downright scary. And it should be awesome even riding on icy, slushy roads with studded tires this Winter, too.

    Yep...pretty sure I like the look of Ti even better with a few splatters of sandy mud!
