  • Time Marker:  John Lewis told me today that Seven’s sixteenth anniversary was yesterday.  He wanted a quote for the Seven blog; I said how about this, “what?”  I totally forgot it was our anniversary.  Actually, in order to forget you first have to remember.  It’s good to be reminded.  Ultimately, I told him the best way for me to appreciate our anniversary is to be very thankful to every customer we’ve had over the past 15 years.  One of my many flaws is that I’m not a celebrator.  It’s a date on the calendar.  The celebration is the people make the 16 years possible:  every one of Seven’s employees, customers, and business partners.
  • Product Development:  Honey Race bikes.  Worked on final details of the tube geometries.  Frame geometries just about completed.  Twelve sizes of stock bike to fit riders from about 4′ 10″ to 6′ 9″.  Also worked on complete bike kits and pricing.  It looks like we’ll come in right on target.  More tomorrow.
  • Star Struck:  Mo Bruno Roy visited Seven today for a top secret photo shoot.  This was not a Seven project.  It’s for a magazine.  I can’t say what until it’s published.  It’ll hit soon.  That’s Mo to the right.
  • Business Management:  The Ride Studio Cafe is wrapping up a Year in Review.  There’s way too much to share.  Posting some tomorrow.
  • Press:  Seven Cycles customer Mike Naughton wins the 2012 Illinois Singlespeed Cyclocross Championship.
