Titanium is the material of choice for Seven Cycles although, carbon was recently added into its palette. The 2011 Mudhoney SL has its basic frame of Argen titanium butted tubes with a wide array of customization options.
With a Gateway kit, the Mudhoney SL has a Seven fork as well as Seven aluminum bar, stem and seat post. The Ritchey Comp headset is matched to its FSA Gossamer crank, Avid Shorty 4′s brakes and Shimano RS-20 wheelset. The kit also includes a Selle Italia Filante saddle.
Options for the drivetrain include choices of SRAM Rival Cross ($4895), SRAM Force Cross ($5095) or Shimano Ultegra Cross ($5095). The frame only costs $3495.
