Stef at Bespoke Cycles posted some thoughts and lots of images of his new project bike from Seven Cycles.  It’s a beautiful bike with lots of details.

Here are a few excerpts from Stefan’s great post:

I’ve been wanting to build a commuter bike for some time now that would be able to handle  some off road excursions too. I figured there was no better company to work with than our friends at Seven Cycles. Besides building some of the finest custom bikes from steel, titanium, and carbon fiber in their own factory in Watertown MA. USA, they also make custom racks out of stainless steel and titanium.
The model I chose was the Expat S built around 29 inch wheels with room for fenders and knobby tires if desired.
I also chose to have Seven construct a custom titanium flatbed rack for the front.
Living in San Francisco and not owning a car, I needed something I could load down while commuting or just running errands.
It’s amazing to be able to talk to and include input with the people that are actually building your new bike.
Seven does a really simple and clean frame coupler to allow the belt installation that doesn’t pull your eye from the overall aesthetic of the frame.
Thanks for working with Seven Cycles on this project Stefan!  Enjoy the ride.

It was really great working with you guys again and I’m still loving the ride! I just got the custom bag for the rack and the fenders are about 3 weeks out. We’ll do a follow up post on our blog w/ the finished product.
