I am now early in my second season on my Seven and am so pleased with my decision to purchase it.  What a lovely riding bike it is.  I have a owned a few pretty nice bikes but this one just takes the cake.  Yeah, it's not a race bike, but I don't race.  It rides so nicely that I am eager to get on it any time that I can.  Is it lunch time yet?

Did you ever pick a name for it?

(Still like my suggestion of "Gwenyth" )
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Shouldn't an "Anniversary" pic accompany this thread?

How utterly unromantic you are...

When you make love to your bike maybe a pic isn't appropriate :-)

The bike remains un-named, although I did toy with the idea of putting brackets around the decal so it would be but decided I didn't want any association there. I did get a chuckle out of Gwenyth.

We did just return from a romantic lunch date in the sunshine.

No camera at work, but if I remember I will post a pic. Very simple and unassuming, almost classic look to it. I think I posted one when I first got it because I recall someone being in a state of disbelief at the length of the head tube. Hey, it was built to fit my whacky proportions!

Thinline -

I don't know why you are so abusive to the rest of us... Perhaps you are the jealous type and don't like to share. I'm pretty sure you have a name for her, but just don't want any of the rest of us calling her name in the middle of the night...

I promise not to steal her away.

Post a pic!

It must be one hell of a ride, if you used the adjective, lovely to describe it. Can't say I've ever heard anyone use that to describe their bicycle. So what is her name?

This link should take you to a photo. Yeah, it's crazy long but it works. I just tried it. This was taken before I even rode it as it was built in the off season. You can tell it's winter because the little unit plugged into the wall is charge the batteries for my ski boot warmers :-)

No name yet. Perhaps inspiration will hit this weekend after the big Adirondack day and a couple drinks afterwards before passing out from exhaustion!
