Journal: Not What Ships Are For

July 12, 2012

in Journal Notes

Thursday Location:  Seven     ||      7:55 am – 5:35 pm – then ride with Mary & Mike – then home to lick my wounds

  • Product Development:  Working on an integrated ANT sensor for Seven Cycles.  I’m sure we’ll get it ready just in time for someone to change the standard.  Regardless, I want one in my next bike.
  • Project:  Making progress on our carbon finish system fatigue testing.  No failure yet; that’s a good sign.  It means the first round passed.
  • Project:  Titanium Testing.  I started on setting parameters for Seven Cycles’ next titanium testing.  We’re looking at a number of test parameters:  surface finish on the ID and OD, concentricity, and – most important – contractile strain ratio.
  • Graphic Design:  The Mary and Mike posters arrived at Seven Cycles.  M&M will be signing them all.  The poster is a very limited edition:  100 posters; each signed by Mary and Mike.  We’re providing 60 or our retailers and distributors with them and we’ll be selling the remaining posters to raise funds for the Seven Cycles race team.
  • Time Marker:  Mary McConneloug and Mike Broderick visited Seven this evening.  We went for a ride – amazing.  And we talked about their 2012 season so far and 2013 plans. Get ready.
