Made in the USA doesn't get much better than a custom bicycle built by Seven Cycles! Located in Watertown, Massachusetts, they are within a two hour drive from our store. We can even set up a tour for you of their manufacturing facility! Seven is the world's largest producer of custom Titanium and Titanium-Carbon mix bikes. What is even more exciting is that they don't charge extra for full custom geometry! Seven doesn't have an inventory of bikes stored in a warehouse--every bike is made special for the rider. They work hard to ensure your bike is personalized just for you.
Seven Cycles started making bikes in 1997 and honed their processes so that you can have your fully custom bike in as short a time as possible. Current lead time for non-painted bikes is 18 weeks* from sign-off. Painted frames is 21 weeks*. Seven builds bikes from Titanium or Titanium Carbon mix. Founder and president Rob Vandermark and the Seven team have been working with titanium since its introduction into the cycling industry, pioneering many of the design and manufacturing techniques used throughout the industry today.
We have partnered with Seven Cycles to get you on your perfect bike, because their mission matches the Bicycles East mission. They only use the best materials and craftsmanship, allowing for a lifetime frame warranty. When you buy a Seven, you get a bike that is fit to you perfectly with unlimited personalization of components, color, and decals. It's easy to realize the un-matched value a Seven, because you get all of this at a price equal to or less than bikes offered by others.
Ordering a Seven from Bicycles East is enjoyable and simple. It starts with a conversation with your Bicycles East Seven expert, guided by a form created by Seven. We want to learn about where you want to ride, how you want your dream bike to feel and handle, and what you like or dislike about any current bike(s) that you ride. In addition, we will guide you in the selection of components and options.
One of the great benefits of buying a Seven is that it will be custom built to the measurements that match your ideal riding position. When you purchase your new Seven from Bicycles East, we include a free bike fit with our professional fitter. Steve uses a variety of tools including our Precision Fit cycle and video motion capture. He has over eighteen years of experience as a bike fitter, has fitted thousands of cyclists, and has earned multiple advanced bike fit certifications. By the end of your fit, we will have developed your ideal riding position. Eighteen measurements will be taken and recorded. The information from the interview and fit is shared with Seven.
Then you have a phone interview with the designer at Seven. Now your designer begins to design the bike of your dreams. Throughout the process, there is communication between Bicycles East, Seven, and YOU! We present you with the design, and once it is perfect, it goes into queue for production.
Amazingly, we have never had anybody less than thrilled with their new Seven bike. Our process works!
