  • Product Development:  Mary McConneloug’s and Mike Broderick’s latest 650b Sevens are pretty much ready to go.  Making a few more changes to the design and then Mike and Mary be riding them in May World Cups.
  • Note:  A friend and I are having what I called the “Battle of the Scattered!”  He and I have too many projects occurring and we’re both trying to add more, somehow.  It is a battle.
  • Visual:  We’re making progress at Seven Cycles on a new video shoot.  Second set of filming happening soon.  Wrapping up editing by lat May.

  • Ride Event:  Velouria of Lovely Bicycle! wrote about the season’s first Permanent ride this weekend – from the Ride Studio Cafe.  As she indicated, it did seem a bit early in the year for this.
  • Product Horizon:  Seven Cycles has been building and riding 650b knobby bikes since the tires first came out of molds.  I just checked and we’ve been doing 650b mountain bikes for about three years.  I’m guessing we’re well into triple digits for custom geometry 650b’s, too.  That may not seem like a lot but with every custom bike we learn an awful lot; it’s sort of like 100 generations of product development.  Some great characteristics; and not the answer to everything.
