I was going through some very old posts yesterday and was surprised to see how uninformed I was about Lotus bikes a few years ago. I would never purport any expertise on the subject, it’s just that I have obsessive opinions on all things Lotus. I believe my knowledge and identification skills have improved, though mistakes are certain to pop up-see my recent Oxide Green Competition post.
Given my limitations, it’s great that there are two, totally different sites dedicated to Lotus bicycles. Tim at Vintage Lotus Bicycles has a very organized catalog of Lotus information. My site, is a little more eccentric (erratic) and shows all facets of customized, restored, and generally used Lotus bikes, with a close watch on the marketplace. Both are useful in their own way.
Additionally, I’m a little disappointed with the search feature in my new tumblr theme. I wish there were a search panel on the home page, but instead you must click on tags in a given post. It’s not an impossible task but not as easy as I would prefer it to be. While trolling old posts, I also noticed that some 2011 images won’t load. It’s frustrating and probably requires a note to someone at tumblr.
That’s my moment of reflection.
