  • Bike Review:  Pamela Blalock tested a Seven Cycles Cafe Racer S fixed gear bike. Absolutely worth a read.
  • Time Marker:  Got a call from Chris Chance today.  I haven’t talked with him in 14-years.  I’ve always had a lot of respect for what he accomplished in the mountain bike industry back in entire decade of the ’80s.  He did what very few people have ever done.  I would term his relationship to the bike industry as complicated.  He’s working on a Fat City event for September and was inviting me to participate.
  • Product Design:  John Bayley is racing Mount Washington on Saturday.  He’s taking the specially modified Seven Cycles Axiom SLX again.  It’s difficult to imagine he could have a better race than his last jaunt up the mountain, but I’m keeping my spokes crossed for him.  “No pressure.” seems to be the common utterance.
  • Graphic Design:  Completed the 115 vouchers for the CRW fundraiser this weekend.  Skunk did all the hard work; I just poked around and got in the way.
  • Business Development:  We’ve come up with a good and simple program for Seven Cycles retailers for the 2013 season.  The never-ending challenge is incenting retailers in meaningful ways while keeping the programs simple, compelling, and valuable the retailers.  I think we’ve done that.  We’ll know in about three weeks.  We’re rolling out the plan on Monday.
