It makes sense to require track bikes only if there are lots of riders on the track. You don't want someone just ahead of you to brake.

We have the Alpenrose velodrome across town built in 1967 for the National Championships, one of the steepest in the country. It is open for all to ride anytime as long as no organized event is going on and they have beginner events regularly.

We rode out to it back in high school a few times and rode it, what a blast. I have got to get back on it.

If I was you I would and yours is open to the public with no posted rules, I'd be on it in a second.

Cesspool of sin Asheville NC! I lived a couple of blocks from this for 6 years...until about 3 years ago.

They used to to race cars on that track until the 80s, before the great revitalization of West Asheville. I still work in the area, but live in Greenville SC now.

Making hay while the sun shines.



The wheat was harvested Friday and hay making yesterday and today. Hay baling is slowly disappearing as a viable process.

Are those 24 inch wheels or are you 6'10! What a bike! If you see a rabbit with a top hat and a big pocket watch go past you I strongly advise to go easy on those mushrooms .

I have a son who is 6'8 and another who is 6'6. I'm always looking for bikes that are tall and curious as to how the ride differs from just raising the seat and extending the stem.
Whether someone considers someone very tall or very short has nothing to do with my interest pertaining to the effects of the geometry of what, to me at least, is a very rare bike.

Ah OK, I get it now. Thanks for clarifying. And now you'll forgive me for saying: You're very tall!

Sorry the Purple Haze heading threw me off, but yeah it's a tall boy. I'm 6'5" and shrinking...and getting used to now riding smaller frames with higher seat extensions. It's not as uncommon to find 66 cm / 27" frames as you'd think, but seems to be hard to find them on anything higher up the product lines of the various mfg's.

@Deal4Fuji, I believe we lose height only in our backs, not our legs, so I don't understand the need for smaller frames. If anything, it should be for larger frames, since we don't have to bend down as much to reach the handlebars. I'm not tall, but the same is happening with me. I started at 5'10", and I might be below 5'9" now.

I've heard that too, but I'm thinking some of mine might be in the arches of my feet as well. I had really high arches and now my foot size has gone up 1 and the arches don't seem to be as high. It's not that I'm looking for smaller frames, I'm just finding that I have to accept and work with a smaller frame if I'm gonna get the C&V bikes that have become available lately.

I do, no so much the extra workout on the hills. Hopefully she enjoys it as well, as it’s the only way I can get a ride in on the weekends now. Dual income schedules don’t always line up, my weekends have turned into full-time Daddy duty.

66 cm?

Is the hay roll bike only a 66 cm frame? Goodness me I thought it was getting up to 70cm. My sons ride 66 cm and your head tube must have 4 to 5 cms on theirs.
I think the bike looks wonderful - hence the Alice in Wonderland reference.
If you get a moment could you measure the head tube length and the BB to top tube.

Was it custom made?

I have seen a 1920s low rider (BB closer to the ground) with those proportions. The idea being a tallish person could still extend for the full leg drive but be able to ground a foot whilst remaining in the saddle.
What a great bike.

Thanks ! Lotus was still using inches in '87, so it's a 27" frame. I measure the Headtube as 10½" from chrome ring to chrome ring, and BB to top tube at 24¾" Here's the spec page from the Vintage Lotus Bicycles Home Page web page.

Your measurement suggests it is a 25 inch frame as described in the sales blurb - not a 27 inch . I venture it is a custom frame designed for a tall person with short legs. I will try and post a very similarly rare configuration from the 1920s

I haven't been riding as much as I should lately, I am working 11+/- hour days at work and I just don't have the energy most days. Despite the air being very moist and temperature climbing I went out this morning. I had a great ride on the colorful Cornelo with two laps around my usual scutoid with a cruise through Shoaf park as well.

This bike not only looks great it feels great. It fits like a glove and has a nice smooth ride but is very responsive to pedal and steering inputs. If I didn't know better I'd say someone repainted a Bianchi


It seems odd that a brown saddle would look so goor on a red and white bike but it really works and it is very comfy too.


Matching riding 'kit' is a must!


Very old school mixed with new tech

It's more likely I don't know the right way to measure a frame. I measured from the top of the BB to the bottom of the top tube, going middle to middle is 27", but you could be right - this is what the bike looked like when I 1st got it, so probably a taller guy than me had it. ^^^ nice 20's bike !
