    I have a Trek 5900, and a Serotta Legend Ti. I am looking for a ti/carbon bike...these are the three I like, anyone have these? I am NOT interested in the Merlin Cielo. Thanks!

    Its essentially a carbon bike with titanium lugs. It's not what I am looking for.

    Look at the Colnago CT-1 with carbon B-Stays. IMO that 5900 of your is a great performer on any road. I'm not sure that you are going to gain anything by adding any of these bikes to you existing stable.

    No contest. Odonata.

    I'm really a fan of all three - but the true benefit to a Seven cannot be seen on a spec sheet. There's so much that those guys can do with a bike, you end up getting exactly what you desire in your new machine. Seven is the most customizable bike I've ever seen - and the workmanship is out of this world!

    You can't go wrong with the Odonata.

    No, not yet. Actually, when I get around to getting a Seven, it'll probably be an Axiom, steel or Ti. I haven't made up my mind yet. Plus, I've currently got a Trek 5200 and Waterford R-33 in the stable, so it might be a while...

    Seven really impresses me though. I got the Waterford because I like the classic styling and wanted a steel bike after riding the carbon for a while. But a Seven is definitely in my future.

    No. It'll probably be a number of years before I bring a Seven home. Plus, with how much I'm enjoying the Waterford, I just don't need another bike right now. I'm actually considering a Seven mtb now (Sola or Teres). We'll see...
