    Re: gear into the right bedrock

    This is, as far as I can tell, a metaphor from mountain biking.

    "Bedrock" is the ground, which can be very different to ride on depending on what kind of rock is exposed.

    "To gear into" is to ride into a certain place, path, or terrain, making sure that your bike is in the right gear.

    Obviously the "right bedrock" is different for each mountain biker, depending on how good they or their bike is, and what kind of ride they prefer.

    As a business metaphor, it seems to mean "to find the base market/product that is right for you to develop".
