Simplicity Rules.

The Lotus Sport Bicycle from 1992. Is this the most beautiful Carbon track bike ever made?

This is a replica made by Lotus Engineering of the bicycle on which the British racer Chris Boardman won the Gold Medal in the 4km pursuit event at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. The bicycle was constructed largely from carbon fibre and weighed less than 9kg. It was designed by Mike Burrows for Lotus Engineering, and was extensively wind-tested to be as aerodynamic as possible, both from the perspective of the bicycle itself and the rider’s body position

If you are a keen reader then this Mike Burrows written book is well worth a look in terms of bicycle technology. And pay no attention to the recumbent on the cover either, it really is a great book full of great insight about all types of human powered vehicles.
