    N+1, at last.

    I've been riding my Gunnar for more than 5 years and I've been eyeing a Ridley at the LBS, but work issues, etc. have kept me from buying. It's rare to find a frame with the
    dimensions I like so when the LBS guy called and told me he had a Seven in my size, I went to have a look.
    Turns out it's as close to a perfect fit as anything I've been on and the price was so low I couldn't say no. I doubt it even has 100 miles on it and the owner needed cash,
    so it's mine.

    Very classy looking bike. I especially like the paint. Bet it has a nice ride too.

    May not be the same manufacturer but I think it is. The only seven bikes I came across were mountain bikes and they were good. Lightweight steel frames that were strong and rode very well.

    But Ride report necessary now and specs.

    Nice bike!

    Is that an Axiom SL? Those start at $5200 with a 105 group set. Go way up from there.

    Thanks, guys. Stapfam, they do mtb frames and handlebars in their shop in Mass. The founder came from Merlin Metalworks in 1997.
    I do have blue jerseys and helmet, so I match.
    Deals like this don't find me very often and so far I am quite happy with it. Only a short 25 mile ride and still need to dial the fit a little. Can't wait for a day in the mountains on this bike.

    It's an Axiom Race with Campagnolo Chorus and Cole wheels.
