just print and laminate some signs for each rack - 'dungers', 'mtbs', 'italian classics', 'fixies', 'australian road bikes'. it'll totally work! o.O

I like neat little details like that. Like the seat tube mounted shift lever WyvernRH had on a touring bike to activate his dynamo.

I'd never heard of a Lotus. Googled and found this nice little website devoted to the vintage Lotus bicycle. If I come across it again I'll get details for their database.

Why's that? They look like pretty standard G1 non Shamino Vs. Added reflector excepted of course.

That thing's a reflector? I've never seen anything like it, my first guess was some sort of weird Pedersen SE kind of thing.

they are awesomely effective its one of the few MTB's Ive ridden where I can consistently stop on the frontwheel without faceplanting.
after an hours ride the 8sp shifter stopped working ,so i'll pull it apart and have a look.
meanwhile I bumped into a malvernstar LA 84 during a cleanup , hopefully the owner, who was going to throw it out will decide to sell it too me :D
then i can post a before and after happy pic :D
