Seven Sola or Verve?
I am in the process of saving for a Seven ti frame. My quandry is which frame to go for, the Sola or the Verve? Initially I was going for the Verve but a friend created some doubt by encouraging me to consider the butted tubing and it's effect on ride quality vs. the straight gauge tubing on the Verve.
I inquired about this a while back. The answer from Rob at Seven:
Because of the straight gauge tubing, the Verve's customization is limited to geometry and tubeset.
We still have a variety of tubesets to choose from so that we can talior the ride characteristics to the rider's request. The extra butting of the Sola allows us to customize just a little further - like fine tuning.
