What do you ride if you’re 6’10”? Dave from River City Bicycles wanted a bicycle in-store for a Portland Trailblazer, or any customer that tall, and the result is a titanium road bike built to commemorate the 1977 NBA Championship won by the Portland Trailblazers.
The number of people that roll through Golden Saddle Cyclery with nice bikes on any given day is impressive. So impressive that often times, I shoot their bikes, dump the memory cards and literally forget about them until one day I stumble across the photos. Ian was visiting LA back in February from NYC, where he works in film. Knowing that LA has dirt roads for miles, he brought along his 650b Seven Cycles Evergreen S, a titanium “all-road” bike built for long days on dirt. His bike has a few trick details, including the sub fork race-Edelux light mount and those juicy Compass Babyshoe Pass tires. With the reliability of Shimano Ultegra hydro, solid Ritchey components, a titanium post and a vintage Flite, this bike is just begging for trouble in the mountains! If you see Ian, tell him LA says hi and to holler next time he’s in town!
The Treeline isn’t exactly a fatbike. Sure it looks like one, but the truth is, it’s a fatbike and it’s an all-season MTB, capable of 26″ wheels and true fat tires or 27.5+ wheels. Ride it in the snow, or ride it on a bikepacking trip. You can run it with drops, or a flat bar, suspended or rigid. There are rackmounts and you can build it with thru-axles or QR skewers.
Seven has developed a veritable do-it-all, plus-sized MTB… Head over to Seven to see more on Treeline.
Frame builders Seven Cycles announced their newest model to their brand’s component lineup: the Max 45 tapered disc fork. The Max 45 is as you might have guessed, capable of clearing a 45mm tire, or a 38mm tire with fenders. Which coincidentally the fork has integrated mounts for. The Max 45 also features double cable housing guides for improved routing.
While the obvious and some might argue glaring omission is thru-axle compatibility, I’d say this is a great option for those looking for a more versatile commuter or “all-road” disc fork. The axle to crown measures 395 mm and features a 45mm rake.
Price? $545 and in stock now at Seven Cycles.
