You may or may not know that I usually leave a calling card on bikes I photograph, inviting the rider to visit the blog and tell us about their bike. I love it when they do, and have had some very happy-making visits from riders including this one  and this one. But it seems to have dropped off lately, in face I can’t remember the last time I got a response from a rider.

Given this I’ve been a little slack about posting within 48 hours, which is my promise on the card. Like who cares? I think. Well I hope the rider of this little folder with the lovely lugs didn’t care,

because I just realised I have missed the 48 hour deadline for it twice. I posted it about a year ago (here) with an apology for missing the deadline, and  missed it again this time. Sigh.

Anyway, enough about me and my short comings – I managed to pick up some nice details this time around that I can share with you right now, love those lugs…

and while we’re looking a details, here’s some more from a little Malvern Star I’ve seen around a bit, though never had a chance to photograph before now  (which was actually a few weeks ago, but I didn’t have a card on me so the rider will never know). I am crazy about the sweep of the handlebars …perfectI  also like the detail of the blue chain

and I like thisand this

and this and speaking of blue Malvern Stars, and bikes that I have seen more than once, and bikes that I don’t post when I promise to, here’s one that ticks all those boxes.

I see this little work horse around Fitzroy all the time. I finally met the rider (who is very tall for such a small bike) in Rose Street a few weeks ago. In fact it was  the same day as  Rose Street Pink. I was considering following up Rose Street Pink with a post called Rose Street Blue, but thought a single photo post might be a bit of a let down after the elaborate sequence of the previous post. See how I keep you, the reader, in mind? I know there are only a bakers dozen who read this blog regularly, but you are my bakers dozen and I care about your reading satisfaction.
