    hey hugh... got yer ears on?

    got a question for ya. i'm lookin' at having seven finally build me a frame. my quandry is this; steel or ti?
    i know you've been riding the ti seven for a while, and was wondering,
    why you went ti instead of steel?
    how big are you?
    did you go with the verve or the sola?
    what's the capitol of lithuania?
    sorry, got carried away...

    I would go Ti..
    When I got my Ti bike I found it rode real nice. Stiff when standing up and hammering. The weird thing was that when seated it felt smoother than my steel frame!! Go figure... So being the nut that I am I swaped seats and tires and rode my steel frame. When standing up and cranking hard I could flex it to the point of the tire rubbing the chain stays. When I sat down it transfered the little ripples more. My steel is from a different Mfg. So I cant tell you about a steel frame from Seven. Another reason I went Ti is that my steel frame rusts where ever it gets scratched. Lets cut the BS Ti just rocks!!!
    I am 200lbs(197) so I decided to go with the Verve. Since I am heavy and a Single speeeeeder I think the sola would have flexed a bit much for my taste. When you ask the guys at Seven they tell you up front..." we would love to make the extra 500 bucks but we don't think you would like it for your aplication"... So what I got outa that was Go Verve fat ass you will flex the crap out of a sola... Hope that helps. I do like my Seven alot.. Since I have had it I lost all my bike envy. I still smile huge every time I load it into my truck to go ride!!!!
