    NEW Seven Resolute SLX

    Sadly it is not mine.

    My friend just built this up and we went out on the maiden voyage today.
    The welds are immaculate. The rear triangle is a thing of beauty. The bike feels responsive
    and a bit plush. The contrast between his build and mine are interesting. I can feel the "steel" feeling of the resolute. A very fine machine.

    From what I know... the whole thing weighs in at about 18lbs. The top tube is True Temper OX Platinum. I don't know what the rest of the tubing is.

    It is fairly light. Not as light as the titanium, but light.

    Handling:7
    Drivetrain:7
    Vertical Compliance:4
    Weight to Performance:5

    There are little flecks of metal in the black paint that really make it look sharp.

    Loveley! I've always valued the Seven Resolute bike as one of the more capable steel bikes out there. Wouldn't kick it out of my stable...

    It is, in many ways, a bargain.

    The angles are 73/74.

    I get to see both on a regular basis, and I would edge toward the Axiom SL.

    Resolute SLX

    Pros: light, narrow tubed steel and the sexiest chainstays on the planet. You are automatically entitled to a pain job of your choice to match your components. It is strong and has that tautness of steel. It always looks great.

    Cons: Paint chips will kill you every time. Seeing the orange oxidation in the BB when you need to clean it out after a couple of winter rides will kill you every time.

    Axiom SL

    Pros: Light, durable, scratches are easily buffed out with Scotchbrite pads, no rust to worry about, titanium's elongation is superior for road feel and absorbing road shocks. Looks industrial (if you like that). Always matches your components.

    Cons: Paint is an up-charge, decals will peel.

    I think the idea of looking like you have an expensive bike is in your own mind and evaporates after several rides. Most people don't know what you have and would likely pay as much or more for a carbon fiber frame that weighs a few grams less.

    In deciding between the Axiom S and Resolute SLX - what would you say was the most noticeable difference? Is the Ti bike that much more comfortabvle and absorbent of road shock?

    The bikes were made to different specs, but they just had a different ride feeling. It is less about the material and more with what you want Seven to do with it.
