That's very cool. I know you're beyond excited. Which frame? Paint or no paint? What components will you put on it?

I signed off on the specs for my new ID8 about 3 weeks ago and they are saying it should ship around the week of 5/24. I can't tell you how many times I've checked the frame tracker hoping for a status change so I can read what they're doing on it now.

So what was the time between spec sign-off and ship date?

Here's a Photoshop creation of what mine should look like (made from pix on the Seven website):

Hey Mikey

Good to hear. Wonder how long it will take to deliver to your lbs. When was original estimated ship date? I have been watching my status for 4 weeks now and see nothing but creating frame kit under status. Getting anxious.
4ster thats a nice looking bike. Your painting it? I was told that paint adds about 6 weeks to the process. Maybe not.
Thanks

Thanks, I hope it looks as good in reality as I think it does on the screen. Seven is doing the paint, I just designed it using Photoshop. I was also told paint would add time for delivery, but the tracker says 5/24. I have sent customer service an email to make sure that's the correct date. My status has been on creating frame kit for about a week now. I keep checking thinking it will change, but sounds like it won't soon, based on your experience. My guess is that the kit has been created and it's now waiting in line for the building to begin. Sounds like yours is a little ways ahead of mine. Post when you see the status change.

I'm from the Philippines dunno how long it would take my dealer to get my frame here. Seven was 2 days ahead of their estimate and as far as i can remember the whole process took only less than 30 days. Btw mine is an axiom sg brushed finish.

I know exactly what you guys are going through. My Seven was shipped to my LBS in a little under a month. I was on the Seven site everyday hoping to see the status change in the build process. When it changed to "ready to be shipped", I was running around the room doing the happy dance. Enjoy your Seven.

Mine was posted as being shipped last Friday and was in my LBS by today (Weds.). It looks great and I'm really happy. I just have to wait for my wheels to come in to finish building it.

Hope you like your bike when it comes in!

Finished it last night and took it out for a 30 mile ride this morning. I love it!!!
Looks nice! I know you're enjoying it.

Was the fit what you expected based on working with your lbs? Did you go directly with Seven's fit recommendations or did you make changes to their numbers before you signed off?

Is the ride what you wanted it to be based on how you answered the performance questions?

The fit was exactly what I expected. We went with the fit suggestions from Seven about setting it up. Its exactly what I asked for, as for performance--I don't think you could get any better. Unfortunately, I think I'm permanently spoiled for any other bike :)
