I like it. This is a beautiful small wheel bike.

With a titanium frame, the only real downside is the price.

Saw this frame but no one has bought a batch and marketed them to my knowledge.

I love that Axiom, what do those frames cost?
They don't advertise them on the Seven site.

Too bad the Qoroz Freedom Won seems to have vanished from existence.

My dream frame would be a Ti minivelo with S&S style couplers for a moderate price.
I hope the Chinese/Taiwanese are listening because they could pull it off for under $1500 easy.

That Seven looks almost like my wife's except hers has 24 inch rims. Just saw the cost question. My wifes coupled frame as a complete bike was on the north side of $5000. Roger

THat SEVEN FRAME LOOKS great as ALwAYS. There is a big market for 20" frames in Asia. A lot of European brands do 20" frames just for that market. Gios for instance.
Found a Chinese-built 20" frame for around 800 bucks ( A group-buy would lower the cost a bit... OR so they claim.) Add S & S couplers and the price goes up 800 bucks or so but then you got a pretty sweet ride.
