Got in the first ride on the new Seven yesterday. That frame rides like it's a magic carpet. Ben, call me a convert for that sweet Ti ride!

thinline, every Cycle Oregon there is this phenomenon that we ti riders have to be aware of; the abrupt slowing every time the ride turns on to a rough chip seal road. We almost have to use our brakes to stay off wheels.

There's another thread asking how comfortable is a particular Wisconsin branded carbon bike, trying to nurse a bad back. Ti might be just the ticket.

Just did ride 2 yesterday at lunch for 20 miles. Sneaking them in between the weather nasties. I loved the ride even more on day 2. I think I am getting accustomed to the handling characteristics, which are definitely more racy than my previous bike. It is such a weird feeling at first, this really plush comfortable feel but at the same time the frame is torsionally very stiff and responsive. It leaps when you punch the pedals and will dive right into a turn. Rainy today, cold and windy again tomorrow, but looking at some 50s and party sunny Thursday into late Sunday with temps slowly indhing up each day. Oh yeah. :-)
