Journal: The Clocks Were Striking Thirteen

Tuesday location:  Seven     ||     7:25 am – 9:10 pm

  • Hire:  Hired a new full-time barista at Ride Studio Cafe today.  He starts part-time tomorrow.  Once he’s full-time I’ll post more.  Double Plus Good.  It took us a couple months to find the right person.  Everyone seems happy.  Three hires complete; four more to go.
  • Product Development:  Working on a new seat stay design.  We’ve prototyped it on a number of bikes but it’s now going into production.  This stay is coming up because of the proliferation of disc brakes on cross, utility, touring, and road bikes.
  • Project Update:  Brochure for Seven.  I’m a broken record.  Working on proofing all the text – with Karl B.’s help.  Working with Skunk on more page designs.  And photography.  Another couple photo shoots tomorrow.  Even if it’s raining.  Feeling tired and very good about how everything is coming together.  I also spent time on the catalogue today.  I’ve got a first draft of that complete.  Hoping to have it ready for the printer within 10 business days of the brochure going to the printer.  Sounds reasonable tonight.
  • Time Marker:  John off to Interbike.
  • Time Marker:  Email count:  177.  Ugh.
  • Note:  Very much talked out.  My voice is shot.

Entry title:  George Orwell, 1984:  “It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.”
