This "production" stuff is good reading. All of my jobs outside of the bike industry were production. I would cut and machine a pile of parts (or somebody else would) and weld all of said pile of parts. Some stuff would b 20 tubes worth of work and I would build 3 or 4 a day or sometimes hundreds of parts would flow thru my bench. One at a time bikes has been somewhat of a psychological challenge for me at times so I try to combine operations on a few bikes as I am working on them. It's all about having the parts ready to go, the inventory stacked. Matt I think you will be successful with this endeavor. It is one thing to build bikes, it is another to sell them and I think you are talented at both.
