A bit about the bike frame:
In 1997, a young Seven Cycles anxiously unveiled its new bike line at the Interbike tradeshow. Seven's wide array of models was impressive enough but one stood out even among a roster of superstars. A road bike then known as the Odonata.
Upon seeing it, Bicycling magazine nominated the Ti/carbon beauty for their Editor’s Choice award. The frame design was so talked about, even Mountain Bike magazine reviewed it, writing “Not even with their abundance of engineers, slick ad campaigns, or lawyers have the biggest of the mega-bike corporations reached such a level. Eat your heart out—the folks at Seven have you beat.”
The Odonata sparked a design revolution, and other companies soon began combining carbon and metal tubes in similar ways. Velonews would write, “What do you do when you have a design so innovative even the Italians copy you?”
Over a decade, the Odonata had seen change, including its name—which is now the ID8. But its essence remains. The ID8’s velvety smooth ride is just as incredible today as ever. In the words of one magazine “It is a contemporary bike for the modern traditionalist.”
