Very nice review!

While I was on my Thursday night Hill Climb/Time Trial last night, I was musing about the chain stays again.

There is a general misconceptions that a) Titanium bikes are for comfort and not for serious competition, and b) that longer chain stays make a bike less stiff and thus make a bike slower or less competitive.

The only discernible flex on a hard, standing 20% climb comes from my handlebars.

Moreover, I am right there in the mix with all the elite racers on CF.

After some initial concerns about the geometry, I came to realize the overall shape of the bike is the same as other racing designs…. only Seven approached the design in a more rational, balanced manner.
