“I don’t get it,” said one of my coworkers. “Why build a plus-size bike out of titanium? The bouncy tires will just mask those subtle ride qualities that make people choose Ti over steel.” As The Donald would say: “WRONG!” It’s incredible how much more forgiving the S7 is compared to the steel, aluminum and carbon plus bikes I’ve ridden. It’s the main reason I kept grabbing it out of the same garage that houses a half-dozen amazing full-suspension bikes. The S7 is a damn smooth bike to ride.
