Tuesday location:  Seven     ||     8:00 am – 9:10 pm

  • Interview:  Signature Cycles Just posted an interview with me regarding Seven Cycles.  Flattered to have been asked to talk.  Michelle did a great job of capturing the conversation.
  • Interview:  talked with VelonewsEmily Zinn today about Mo’s bike.  Emily is working on an online piece.  I’ll post as soon as I see it’s live.
  • Prototyping:  Mike and Mary bike design:  Sending out final specs for sign-off today.  We’re hoping to be cutting metal tomorrow.  I’m champing at the bit to work on these.
  • Prototyping:  Taking the PRO 2 design and putting it into fat tire set up.  This is an ESK project.  Will start posting in about a week.
  • Design:  We’re – read Matt O. is – nearly done with the Coffee Table for Ride Studio Cafe.  It’s going to be the heaviest table on the block.  And most vintage.
  • Product Development:  The randonneur project bike is back into full steam ahead mode with Matt Roy.  This have been one of my favorite projects this year.  I look forward to digging back in and making the coolest rando bike ever.  And one of the coolest bikes, period.  I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to incorporate some of the generator work I’ve been doing.
  • Incentive:  All I need to get work done:  homemade cookies from Mo Bruno Roy.  Cookies in trade for a bike frame. I got the good deal on that trade!
