A few good links

Uncategorized 7

I am pressed for time today, but I do want to quickly pass along a few links that some of you readers have recently sent my way.

Brian just got back from a trip to Florence Italy. He took a ton of great shots of city bikes on the street (like the Atala pictured here). Check out his photoset of bikes from the trip on Flickr. There are some great examples of beausage in these shots; here is one that I particularly like.

Carlton sent a link to his pictures from the 2007 Cycle Show that took place in London last week. Don’t miss the $4,000 Hope kids bike. Nice, but my kids are going to have to stick with their current rides for the time being. Also, check out the colors on the Charge bikes from the show.

In a comment to a previous post, Luciano mentioned a link to a video from Mondial du Deux Roues in Paris this year. Watch it here at his post.

Finally, you probably noticed that I have changed the layout of this blog a bit. The old Blogger rounders template layout was pretty bad and the addition of a third column not too long ago made it even worse. Hopefully, you will find the new layout to be cleaner and easier to read. To say that I am not an HTML expert would be an understatement, but I am learning a bit as I go. I will still be tweaking a bit next week to get the columns to align correctly, so bear with me for a while. I have tested the new layout out in Firefox, IE, and Opera and it seems to work. If any of you notice anything strange happening in your browser, please let me know.

    Michael, No, I had not seen your post, but it cracked me up when I just looked at it. I am sure you were not the only one who didn’t like the old design. I have been meaning to change it for a long time, but I never got around to it. Yesterday, I just changed it on a whim at the end of the day because I couldn’t take that color scheme any longer.

    Love that Atala in the picture. I saw lots of them in Rome and Florence last summer. Can’t wait to see what graces the streets of Tokyo in a few weeks.

    And I really like the new layout too. I’m going to have to update mine soon too…
