    ... and if we just ... Seven Duo Compilation

    Thought I'd move my Duo into its own thread to do it justice. I bought this Seven Signature size 18" frame and built it up with a lot of titanium in thinking it'd be my trophy bike (I've got other bikes I can ride). As it turns out the bike rides so well that it's becoming my main choice for a lot of the longer techy rides.

    Despite some very aggresive riding everything has held up great except that my Fox Talas RLC has decided to no longer lockout. Note that this is one of my several bikes that sport Morati titanium cranks and they've held up great for my riding. Lots of other ti parts on the bike as well... ti King headset, ti Litespeed stem, Moots ti post, etc.

    To me, this well may be the ultimate titanium full-suspension rig.

    Tam,
    That is one very fine bike indeed. I have seen some pictures of you riding it - Looks like it can take a good hammering on the trails.

    The Fox is an OEM model and they're all bossless (I think). The Moratis have worked very well for me through some pretty harsh riding conditions. One of my sets are heavily scratched from scraping boulders/rocks and they've continued to hold up thus far.

    As for adoption, I'm going to be a father in a few months so I don't think there'll be a need but I'll keep you in mind. ;-)

    I met with the people who makes the Titec titanium products when I went to Interbike. If there are 20 people interested we could probably get another batch of Hellions made. ;-)

    Heheh... Yeah - it would definitely have a non-Titec logo and of course there's also the option of making them wider (can always cut them down to desired length after purchase). They wanted a minimum order of 20 before they would make any so if anybody else wants to commit to one let me know and I'll determine whether we can pursue it. I didn't get a cost offhand, but most likely it'd be cheaper than whatever Titec was selling it for.

    Tam:

    how do they measure the seat post angle on the duo? is it the obvious WYSIWYG or is there a virtual angle?

    The angle on the seat tube is 73 degrees and measured the same way as any other bike, I believe. Some people don't like the extreme angle, but I actually prefer it as it gets the seat out of the way when you lower it completely.

    Check out this setup with the Maverick fork. It sort of "complicates" the bike's lines a little, but still looks pretty nice!

    The higher the saddle the slacker the effective seat angle

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Seven/Maverick

    this is the bike that I demo'd at Interbike. It was sweet, 'cept that Maverick bobbed a lot on the standing climbs. Otherwise it was amazing

    I'd be down for some ti bars as well. 20 should be fairly easy to round up I'd think.

    Term, I'd be interested in another Hellion bar if it was under 100 bucks.

    Very nice...

    Good photos too, especially the mood on one that looks like it was shot on Tri-X, but then again from the aspect ratio it looks like you used a digital camera. Is it a little soft though?

    Have a Sola myself, and have thought long and hard about a full-boinger, but for the moment the moolahs are lacking, and the retro-grouch in me keeps preventing me from introducing additional complexity to my bikes.

    Most of the photos I post are taken with a cheap(ish) Casio Exilim digital camera nowadays. It doesn't always get the quality shot that I'd like, but it's very convenient to carry on the rides.

    As a (mainly) singlespeeder, I can appreciate the notion of avoiding complexities on bikes. :-)
