Redshift Sports, Game Changer! One Bike, Two Options. Tri/Road

This is amazing, one bike, two options. Tri bike then a road. All of us have had two bike and train on the road bike and race on the tri bike. Now you can do both.
Redshift Sports was founded in 2013 with the goal of making components that help cyclists and triathletes go faster on the bikes they already own.  We are a small group of mechanical engineers who happen to be avid (if somewhat average) cyclists and triathletes.
Prior to founding Redshift Sports, Stephen, Erik, and Scott managed (and still manage) Ripple Design LLC, an engineering consulting and product design firm in Philadelphia.  We work on a wide range of products, from medical devices to large-scale landmine clearance equipment.  We drew on this extensive design, prototyping and manufacturing experience to bring the Switch Aero System to market.

Demons Need To Be Conquered!

Over a cup of coffee in the USFS building at Hermit Lake, the soon-to-be founding fathers of the Friends of Tuckerman Ravine, Al Risch and Brad Ray, were discussing government budget cuts and the potential devastating results these cutbacks would have on the maintenance and stewardship of the fragile Tuckerman Ravine region.
Brad mentioned that similar Friends groups had started up in other parts of the country and wondered whether we could find someone in the Mount Washington Valley to start a local group whose mission would be to solicit private sector funding and raise an awareness about the struggle to keep and maintain a program of stewardship over the Tuckerman Ravine area.
