    Trinch, sorry to hear about your frame. On the Elium you're considering, I don't know if you used your Axiom on a trainer, but Seven specifically states the Elium should not be used on a fixed trainer. Just something to keep in mind. Hope you can quickly find a replacement that makes you happy.
    It'll feel better when it stops hurting.

    Is this true? Did they say why they recommend not using the Elium on a trainer? Where did you see this - website, brochure, other? Just curious because I have a 2005 Elium SG that is currently my 3rd bike and not seeing much use, so I was thinking of using it on a trainer.

    It voids the warranty:

    The Warranty card lists the Elium, Axiom SLX and Diamas SLX as models which should not be used on a trainer at risk of voiding the warranty.

    Hi 4ster - just curious, what did you end up doing with the steering tube? I recently took delivery on my Axiom S, and the steering tube setup is almost exactly the same, intended for final fit dialing in. How long did you take? I'd like to get mine trimmed, but don't want to rush it.

    kmak, I rode it that way for a couple of weeks before we trimmed the steerer tube. I made sure I was comfortable with it before it got trimmed, so you're smart to not want to rush it. Saw your new Axiom in another post. Looks nice!
