We have some exciting news for prospective Alpha 7 customers. Daniel Fenn did not sit still
since his design, the Alpha 7, entered serial production. He has developed some interesting
upgrades which we will offer in the standard Alpha 7 model.
Currently, the front idler is a non-toothed 85 mm part produced by Alligt; a proven all round
idler at a reasonable price. Because of the wide angle to the chain wheel, there seems to be
some loss in efficiency with this type of idler. Therefore Daniel has developed a new toothed
idler of maximum size, especially made for the Alpha 7 and produced in smaller numbers in
Germany. Thus, the drive train of the Alpha 7 will become even more efficient. The current
idler will be replaced with this beautifully machined idler for all orders after 1 January 2021.
There will also be an important upgrade to the foot plates. Until now, plates for the Alpha 7
series are made from laser stainless steel. Daniel has found a way to both reduce weight and
to increase stiffness. What is more, the new plates look great. The new aluminium plates
machined in Germany will be black anodized. We think about anodizing the suspension in
yellow. As with the new idler, these beautifully made foot plates will be mounted as standard
for all orders from 1 January 2021.
Thanks to Sven Kröll from www.velomobile-nord.de we are improving the built quality of the
front wheels. So far, we did not have adequate tools to measure spoke tension of the front
wheels. Such short spokes are more difficult to adjust. Sven was kind enough to make
available to us all the custom made tools needed for proper measurement provided by
In early January 2021 Sven will instruct us in the application of the new tools so that we can
build ever better wheels.
Because of the significant improvements of the front idler and foot plates we have decided to
adjust the price for the standard production Alpha 7. For all orders from 1 January 2021, the
base price for the Alpha 7 will be 10.100,- €.
