I ride it for on month, and it's different of my Sola : my Sola is more comfortable, my IMX is more performant... I modified my Sola with a Easton MonkeyLite SL to have a all mountain bike !

No problems until today, the headsets can be removed easily with Park Tool special tools... I installed my two Chris King Ti headsets with specific grease on my Ti frames.

Beautiful bike.
Seven makes the very best hard tail mtb IMO.
I had a Sola from '99 - 2002 and no other mtb I have tried rode as nice as that bike.

Fantastique! 8)
No other comments... other than one of those bikes should be a duallie... :wink:

So are those Avid Ultimates a flat blue or metallic colour?
I have been thinking of getting a pair for the last 3 weeks... :?

btw, you really need to change the image host... ads popup every single time I click a photo! :evil: *turns popup blocker back on*

Sorry, I don't understood your question, my english is so poor...

Color of the Avid Juicy Ultimate is blue but not mat, it's brightly, like glazed. This blue color fits perfectly with the fork... You can find Avid Juicy Ultimate at nice price on Ebay, in preference on US Ebay shops. You can try to contact Thecyclesaint : he is the power seller who sold me my two pairs of Ultimate's.

If you want some other picts of the Blue SID or Juicy Ultimate, fell free to contact me !

Here are some other pictures of my Seven's with the current settings :

The IMX with Selle Italia CX Zero saddle, Easton EA90 stem and Easton EC90 CNT 31,8 mm OverSize handlebar :

Image Image

The Sola with Selle Italia C64 saddle , Pace RC31 fork (during winter, I ride a rigid fork) and a new wheelset handbuild with specific CX-Ray in white (special order), ZTR Olympic and Chris King ISO hubs in brown color :

Hi Tib, I know that this is quite an old topic but I've been on the lookout for a medium sized (18") IMX for some time. If you still have it and ever wish to sell it would you please get in touch with me?
