Wildwood, I had really good luck with Seven & had 4 fittings in Portland at River City bikes, Dealt with Ward as a fitter & Matt as the sales manager.
Had 2 long & 1 short detailed conversations with the design/floor rep.
Took a fast track of 4 weeks, love the bike. Started with SRAM, Absloutley hated it. Had shifting problems never had in over 30 yrs of cycling.
Got a chain hanger, no decals but did get head badge. WAS really on the fence about the S&S couplers, decided against them, IF I did it again I would get them.
I was still commuting on weekends to Seattle while I worked in the Gorge, so it worked pretty well for me.
Some folks question the need for a custom fit, at 6' with an inseam of 30' it takes quite a bit to set a "standard size" bike to fit with both special seat posts, handle bars & stems.
Longinc, have had really excellent results with Izzett Swan at Real Rehab in Seattle. She's very thorough, listens & is very insightful when setting up a fit
Hope this helps
