This amazing, hand built titaniam Seven Cycles Alaris Breakaway not only delivers world class performance but it has one huge trick up it's sleeve... This bike can be broken down and fit into it's own custom travel case and then transported as easy as a any modern luggage! There are details galore about how it all works so take a look below and, please, don't drool all over your screen. Owners of S&S coupler bikes know just what a invaluable tool it is to be able to break a bike down for travel. They use the bike for specific travel solutions and because of that they do not often find the need to sell this valuable capability. There is absolutely zero difference in how the bike feels and rides with S&S couplers and the added weight is just 130 - 140grams so there is little in the way of a weight penalty with this modification.
And the reliability and strength is, well, it's remarkable. The bikes de-couples with a simple turn of the wrist.
The S&S toolset is included. These couplers have proven themselves on bike messenger bikes and touring bikes that have clocked more then 300,000 miles to date. And if you think you can detect and additional flex, you need to have a health check because these couplers have proven to be impervious to flex. They don't creak and are completely water tight. Cables also de-couple with a simple twist of these aluminum fastners.Founder and president Rob Vandermark and the Seven team have been working with titanium since its introduction into the cycling industry and Rob himself pioneered so much of that technology that some say he created a revolution. Seven has grown to be the largest exclusively custom frame builder in the world! To own and ride a Seven is really an experience as they are regarded as one of the finest bicycle you can own. The fact that they work with all materials, including carbon, steel and Ti speaks to their commitment to the art of the velo. The Alaris name means "Wingman" which is exactly what this bike represents. And, no pun intended, at just 18.3 lbs this bike earns its wings. Seven's "S-bend" chain and seat stays provide great compliance as well. Due to the fantastic properties of Titanium and the great components, this bike will be as loyal and reliable as a good hunting dog. Long-term durability of Titanium is remarkable offering a nearly infinite duty cycle in addition to being impervious to the elements. This bikes component spec is focused on it's role as a travel bike with gearing designed to tackle any climb and any weather you might throw at it.
A long cage Shimano XT rear derailleur allows for the use of a larger 11-34 rear cassette and when combined with the 50-34t compact front chainrings this bike can handle any rise in the horizon you might find. The Shimano FC-R600 cranks are 172.5mm in length and are matched to Shimano Dura-Ace shifters and brake calipers. Handlebars are Ritchey Pro carbon held fast by a Seven Cycles stem. Headset is, of course, Chris King sealed bearing.
Wheelset consists of Mavic Ksyrium SL which are great everyday wheels because they are so incredibly light weight as well as have a durability few other wheel approach. Saddle is Specialized Romin EVO mounted atop A Bontrager carbon seatpost. The bikes condition is very good.Some cosmetic blemishes such as scuffs to the frame decals and heal rub to the crank arms are evident. The shift levers have some marks from leaning the bike up against walls and such. The frame has no dings or dents and the wheels are true and straight. The wheel spokes have some paint chips which is common with Mavic Ksyriums and the non-drive side crank arm is missing it's cosmetic centercap. The bike shifts cleanly and the rear cassette and front chainrings are in excellent shape. The frame is a 56cm. The bikes stand over height is 32 inches. Its reach measures 27.5 inches as measured from the center of the seat tube to the center point of the where handlebars attach to the stem. Top tube length is 55cm.

So please be patient as we do our best to get the bikes out as quickly as possible to their new owners as we know how exciting it is getting one of the beautiful machines. To clarify these policies and time periods I can tell you the following.... We hand pack every bike ourselves using industry approved, BICYCLE SPECIFIC boxes. These include the installation of plastic fork supports to keep the front fork from penetrating the bottom of the box and dérailleur side load supports and axle shields to keep the axle of the wheels from penetrating the side of the box.
This ensures that the bike will make it to it's destination. Lastly the box is sealed with industrial box staples to keep the load securely enclosed. They will deny the claim for the simplest of reasons. That is why we cover all the bases.
Packing of a bicycle takes a significant block of time if done correctly. This is one thing we can say that few other sellers of pre-owned bicycles can... Our bikes will make it to you as promised, as advertised and in EXACTLY the condition that it left us.
Packing a bike is something that takes experience and taking short cuts will only land you in the nightmare of the UPS claims department which can take months to resolve. Better to do it right the first time.
