Here is my Seven Elium Race with a Serotta F3 fork, full Campy Record 10 speed groupset, and custom carbon clinchers built up with Reynolds 46 SLG rims/White Industries T11 hubs. I acquired this recently in a local sale for a great price (minus the wheels; it came with a pair of Mavic wheels); the owner said he rode it a handful of times then decided he didn't enjoy road cycling as much as he thought he would. I suppose his loss is my gain; made even better by the fact that the geometry works very well for me and I have always lusted after Seven's Ti-Carbon creations.

Sits right at 7.6 kg as shown.

Fantastic lookin' bike and not half bad weight. And you picked this up locally?

Most excellent!

Made a few changes, most notable being a new saddle (Brooks Cambium) and a seatpost with a slightly more setback. Also a 13-29 cassette so I can stay in the big ring longer, which I prefer.

Love the bike; I have ridden my other bikes just a handful of times since getting this one.

Nice saddle, an all black-matt seatpost would look better.

Thanks. Stripping the seatpost is on my list of things to do. Or I might get a titanium one. Haven't made up my mind yet.

Nice bike. I agree w kgt. matte carbon would be great. I think Ti would look a bit top heavy in this case.
