Meet the builders

Meet the Seven Cycles' bike builders and hear all about what they do, how they do it, and ask all of the questions you have about how Seven creates such highly customized, incredible bikes efficiently.

Seven will show how they offer so many customizations, frame features, designs, and models. This is a special opportunity to talk with their designers, machinists, welders and finishers, the people who bring great frames to life there. Seven's founder and President will also be in attendance and will share his insights with you.

It’s better than a factory tour

Factory tours of Seven are fun to see all of the raw materials, the cool machines, the 5” thick chain stay design binder, and arcs coming from the welding torches. However, it’s impossible to stop and speak with the people who are working hard to build the bikes while they are in the factory. During the Seven Cycles day here, this is time when you can ask the questions you’ve always wanted to ask, and get in-depth answers. It’s almost never possible to be in an environment where you can speak at length about bike design and bike building.

The frame builders will be demonstrating some of the steps live and in person, from frame drawings to tube samples, polishing, and the mathematical intricacies of frame design. They will be bringing raw materials so you can see what they begin with and the end result. You can feel lightweight titanium tubing, understand how well built their carbon tubes are, and see their lugs prior to being welded into a frameset.

Forum with the frame builders 1pm-2pm

At 1pm in the afternoon we're hosting an interactive panel discussion with the Seven team who will discuss bringing dream bikes to life. We ask for you to RSVP for this portion, at least, so we have proper seating available during this time.
