Seven Cycles Factory Weekend 2002, Tool

  • Education:  Seven Cycles had visitors from Assabet Vocational School today.  The subject, “Education” means my education, not the students.
  • Words:  Steven Lim of Ride Studio Cafe was interviewed today in the Wicked Local.  Great thoughts.
  • Event:  Honey’s first organized ride is happening next weekend – April 6.  It’s going to be a blast.  A ride unlike any organized ride in which I’ve participated before.  I’m looking forard to it – rain, snow, or shine.  There’s going to be a good pre-ride breakfast, too.  Sign up for the ride here.
  • Hiring Time Marker:  Seven Cycles just hired a bookkeeper today.  I can’t wait until she starts – next week.

  • Research:  We were talking today about how the price of the epoxy for Seven Cycles has increased nearly 10-fold since 1997 when we started using this specific type of epoxy.  There’s only one source for it and we use it for many applications – and on every single frame we build.  So, we’re going to start doing some fatigue testing to evaluate other sources of epoxy.  It’s frustrating because the epoxy we have been using for 16-years has a phenomenal track-record so I have no interest in trying to find something equally as good.  But free-market dictates that we look for a better alternative.
