I debated whether or not to put these images up. One, because I have no eye for photography. And two, because they do not do these bicycles justice.
I first learned about Seven Cycles about eight years ago when the significant other of an employee of ours was "dying to get a job there". I had just started to get back into commuting on my green Gary Fisher hybrid and was happy if I rode my bike once a week. Nearly a decade later, I am a proud owner of 4 (kind of, it is a long story) Sevens. The photos that I took are of my commuter bike highlighting a few of their brand new products like the Tiberius Bar and the custom titanium rear rack.
While the products that Seven manufactures are pretty amazing, what I have had the fortune to learn about their company and their values is even more amazing. Yes, it is true that Rob Vandermark is a good friend of mine, but beyond any personal relationship, what they do to build a frame from start to finish is pretty incredible. And what is even cooler, is to think about how some of the challenges and systems that go into building a frame can translate to running a cafe. Needless to say, I have learned a great deal from Rob and Seven Cycles that have both helped and shaped our business over the past decade.
We are excited to host their staff holiday party tomorrow night at Bloc11. In addition to seeing some good friends, I am looking forward to hearing more of what they have been up to and what they are going to be doing. It's always something new and cutting edge. Sorry, it is a private event. (If you are interested in having a private event, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org).
