Haha, I knew you’ll come back! A blog like this is more than putting some words below pictures, it’s… yes, a true passion. Welcome back!
Thanks, Johann. I should have known too. I was stressed and burned out at the time, but I guess I just needed a long(ish) break. It didn’t take too long to start missing it.
You made my day!
Thanks for the return, that’s great news.
It’s good to see one can recover from blog slump. I’m in the same situation now you were six months ago and keep wondering if it’s time to let some things go for a while. Glad to see that some time away has restored your energy for Bicycle Design.
Thank goodness the RSS feed URL didn’t change, otherwise I might have missed the comeback.
Travis, I would encourage a break to recharge, so that you can return energized and ready stick with it for the long haul. Your site is a valuable resource for recumbent riders all over the world, so it would be a shame to lose it.
Hah! It just popped up in my Feedly feeds.. Good work.
Yay, that’s great news. Looking forward to seeing the new posts.
Thanks to all of you for the comments! it’s great to see them all… and the positive response on social media is nice too.
RSS FTW! Welcome back.
I already posted about the contest and the Denny on Usenet (short version: not a fan of either).
Regarding the new site layout: It’s not looking so great at my regular window width (~1092px). No margins on the left, yet the content is too wide, forcing me to scroll right to see the full page.
Interesting. 1092px is pretty narrow, but I just did a test with my screen resolution set at 1024 and it seemed to work fine. There is not much of a left margin at that width, but the main column resizes to fit everything without horizontal scrolling. I tried it with Chrome, Firefox, and Safari and it worked as expected with all. Can you tell me what browser you are using?
Like I said in the post, the new layout is a work in progress. As usual, I’m learning as I go, but I work out the bugs eventually.
I’m using Safari, and I’m seeing zero margin from roughly 1084 to 1146. I don’t see why that would considered narrow, since anything larger than that just appears to be empty margins. It generally looks fine when I resize the window to smaller resolutions.
Narrow is a relative term, since I am used to 1600px width on my laptop, but you are right about empty margins. Thanks for the additional info. I will look into it.
Woohoo! I’m glad I didn’t take the link off my daily.
looking forward for new articles
