The Lotus 108 is an oh so British triumph in bicycle design. A bike that taught an entire generation the significance of aerodynamics in one golden moment. Sad then, to notice this particular 108 drew a crowd of zero when displayed at a recent trade show. Tyres deflated, the 108 didn’t even have a name plaque to distinguish it from the irrelevant products that surrounded it.
Still, it’s a real pleasure to see this bike and I hope you enjoy the photographs. For those after more information on the 108 I suggest checking out this article.
