I hope all of you had a great turkey day and got to ride your bike. I just returned from North Dakota and thought I'd post an update to a couple of previous posts.
First, thanks for all the comments regarding carbon fiber. The blog post has been a good experiment. I'm sure for those of you that read the 20+ blog comments, you can see the challenge we have as a manufacturer. Regardless, it helped us shape many internal conversations and I hope to have more "What If?" posts in the future. Special thanks to the guy who wrote about classical music. I love that I can learn a thing or two about something other than bikes while attempting to do my job.
Second, I quick update on a special little project. After Interbike, both Kid and I did posts on Interbike Perspectives. It's always fun to share perspectives. Well, at the very end of one of my posts I said that we walked away from Interbike with at least one really, really good idea. Well, after some good discussions, we've taken some action and moved forward with this concept. The Product Design crew has done some modelling. I can't wait to see the final version. I think you will too. Sorry folks, that's all I can say right now. If all goes as planned, we'll show you this one at Interbike next year!
Anyway, I wish you all a great week and I hope you ride your bike(s)!

Growing up as a Minnesota farm boy, I developed an appreciation and love for land and open space. This appreciation has fostered two passions, cycling and photography. Both of these passions provide freedom, encourage me to explore and foster creativity. More importantly though, my journey with a bike and a camera reminds me that the world is big and I am small.
