    Seven for a big and tall rider

    Rider is 6'6" and 350lbs. Note the beefy down tube. This bike was purchased at River City Cycles in Portland. That shop is awesome and this bike is awesome.

    Read about the customer experience in my blog.

    I saw that bike at RCB on Saturday, or was it Sunday? Nice to see an Axiom Race without the paint.

    Sunday. I originally was going to paint it -- though not the paint scheme that is "included" with the price. Incidentally, if you choose not to get any paint, you pay the naked Axiom price, not the race price.

    I'm very, very glad I went paintless.

    Me too. Paint on such a bike is wrong.

    I had my 2007 Axiom built to Race specs, but they put on an SG decal. Oh well.

    If it bugs you, I'm sure they would send you the decal. You'd probably go faster if it said race.

    Nice build and nice to see someone else with a Seven with such a massive headtube (mine is ~30cm). You will be happy you chose the Alpha tandem fork over the Seven/Reynolds fork, that I promise you. Upgraded that this year and it's far less flexy up front.

    I went Fizik gel, plus one cork tape, then Fizik black fuzzy tape on top and very happy with hands. This works well for CX too since the Fizik tape is a little grabby.

    Enjoy the ride.

    I guess you have to understand the Hells Angels to get the Sonny refference!

    Nice looking bike. They could have easily put two badges on that head tube!

    30 cm ... wow, mines only 13.6 cm.

    Seven.jpg I have a custom Alaris I'm 6ft3in. I Shattered my Scapula and needed the bars higher to take the strain off my shoulder socket it replaces a Merckx. I love to bike but still have shoulder socket problems.
