  • Project:  It’s aparent that Seven Cycles’ Zero Defect Initiative is not working as well as it has for the past 10-years since we originally put it in place.  We’re not quite at 6 simga quality.  As with every system, standards migrate over time.   Systems either adjust to those changes or they don’t. Entropy unchecked checkmates. Most of Seven’s systems have adjusted, not all have.  We’re closing those gaps and updating some of the systems.
  • Product Design:  Updating our three types of titanium seat posts.  27.2, 30.9 and 31.8 mm diameters.  Tuning the 30.9 to make it a bit lighter.  We’re getting more and more interest in these.
  • Bike Race:  The Ride Studio Cafe Racer Endurance Team did an amazing job this past weekend.  They crushed the Green Mountain Double Century course record – that they set last year.  More details to come.
  • Press:  Some kind words from Rob Kristoff about the Ride Studio Cafe.
  • Bike:  Seven Cycles team member, Scott L. picked up his new single speed race bike last week.
  • Bike:  Deja vu:  Scott L. also picked up his new Seven Cycles commuter bike last week, too.
  • Bike Race:  The Rapha New England Gentlemen’s Race is official.  No going back now.
  • Note:  For me it’s incredibly difficult for me to have fun when others are not happy.
  • Press:  Ride Studio Cafe mentioned on Slam That Stem.
  • Quote:  “When we are tired we are attacked by ideas we conquered long ago.”   – Friedrich Nietzsche
