Journal: Made Men Too Light

in Journal Notes

Friday location:  Seven

Time:  7:55 am – 9:25 pm

  • Project:  Brochure 2013 for Seven Cycles.  I’m sure I sound like a broken record but we’re putting in lots of hours every day at this point.  Today it was finalizing page size, working on interior design, color palette, cover design.  We also worked on a second draft of the bike catalogue.
  • Product Design:  30.9mm diameter titanium seat post.  Working on Seven Cycles’ latest seat post design and integration into Seven frame designs.  Stef A. is doing the drawings.  We currently offer three seat post diameters in titanium   27.2, 30.9, and 31.8.  We’re making some refinements for the 2013 season.  We’ll be showing details soon.
  • Recruiting:  Another many hours of broken recording.  I feel like we’re starting to make a bit of traction on the Studio searches.  Kind of starting over with some of the Seven searches.  It’s all good but too few hours.
  • Business Development:  Fifth bike brand for Ride Studio Cafe is confirmed.  It’s  a big deal and a very welcome addition to an amazing bike lineup.  I’m hopeful that we can go public with it next week.
  • Time Marker:  Seven Cycles 2012 brochure reprints arrived – in time for Eurobike.  And these will get us through the next four weeks until the 2013 brochure arrives.

Post title:  Henri Pelissier – winner of the 1923 Tour de France.  “One day they’ll start putting lumps of lead in our pocket because God made men too light.”
