I am lucky enough to own a Lotus type  110 bike. I plan on riding it. They aren't that light if I am honest, but their 5-1 foil shape (banned now by the UCI) is super clean through the air, which makes them very fast.

 

i went and had a chat with Mike Burrows the other day, he lives on the next road over from me and it was fascinating to learn that it was already a 10 year old design before Chris Boardman had got his hands on one. Mike had tried to sell the design to people like Raleigh who had laughed at his design.

i also like that Mike was doing his own time trial in Bungay, Norfolk when Chris was setting the world 1 hour record, he had no idea his bike design was making history.

He was a bit grumpy about Lotus and the 110 though, Lotus refused to give him any recognition for it or royalties stating it was significantly different.

I think that would look really great hung up on my wall.

Not sure about 'drop out screw ins' etc - does this mean it can't be used?
