If I have been neglecting this blog in the past week it is because I have been updating my “Registry” website. I have recently rebuilt the entire site and this last week I added a Picture Gallery page with photos of bikes I built over the years.
Resizing all these pictures one by one and adding them to the webpage has been very time consuming.
But I have set the page up in such a way that I will now be able to insert new pictures as they come in, anywhere in the sequence.
This will mean that the pictures will remain shown in numerical succession listed by frame serial numbers.
If you hover the curser over the thumbnail picture the frame number will show up.
The registry has been up for about a year and a half now and it has 163 members.
It is interesting to note that many of the people owning bikes I built are the original owners. Most of the frames still have the original paint.
163 people listed is not many when you consider I built several thousand frames over the years, and I wonder where all the bikes are. However, there is hardly a week goes by that I get emails from owners who usually start out by saying, “I just stumbled upon your bike registry.”
It is probably a good thing that new membership to the listing is a steady trickle; after all I still want to find time to ride my bike.
