New hard and soft goods from Seven Cycles

Wool jerseys and carbon fibre seatposts

Custom frame builder Seven Cycles is adding some hard and soft goods to its range of titanium, carbon fibre and steel frames for 2009.

The Wool Jersey 3.0, from Woolistic, is made of 100 percent merino wool and features a quarter-length front zip, three rear pockets and a knitted-in Seven Cycles logo. The jersey is only available in red with grey accents, but the broad sizing range covers S-XXL. Retail cost is US$160 (approx £113).

Seven is also offering a heavier Winter Trainer jersey in limited numbers. The 100 percent merino wool top includes a higher-cut collar and elastic waist, plus a full-length front zip. Colours are anthracite/white or white/black, with sizes ranging from XS-XXL. Retail cost is US$225 (£159).

The brand is also introducing a new carbon fibre seatpost that features a structural wrap over a cold-forged 2014 aluminium skeleton. The post will be available in 280mm or 400mm lengths, both with 27.2mm diameters. Claimed weights are 185g and 205g respectively and retail cost is US$179 (£126).

James started as a roadie in 1990 with his high school team but switched to dirt in 1994 and has enjoyed both ever since. Anything that comes through his hands is bound to be taken apart, and those hands still sometimes smell like fork oil even though he retired from shop life in 2007. He prefers manual over automatic, fizzy over still, and the right way over the easy way.
  • Discipline: Mountain, road, cyclocross
  • Preferred Terrain: Up in the Colorado high-country where the singletrack is still single, the dirt is still brown, and the aspens are in full bloom. Also, those perfect stretches of pavement where the road snakes across the mountainside like an artist's paintbrush.
  • Beer of Choice: Mexican Coke
  • Location: Boulder, Colorado, USA
