This is my personal Seven Odonata from 2000. In model years, this is a 15 year old bike. Think about that for a second. Over the last 15 years, I’ve Krank’d the Kank, raced Rapha Gentleman’s races, won Vance Creek, and climbed the foothills of Mt. Rainier. This bike has commuted back and forth to Somerville, Cambridge, and Fremont. It’s been a Shimano, Campagnolo, and SRAM equipped bike. It’s been as light as 15 and change and as heavy as 18. Ask Terry Buchanan and he’ll tell you every single time I get on this bike, I say……man….I love this bike. Thank you, Seven Cycles for this machine that has been solid, reliable, and still to this day….timeless.
