I was trying to think up a creative and intelligent name for this posting, but came up with nothing. What can you expect at 2:17am? This is bicycle-related so hear me out.
One of the best signs of wisdom is that someone knows what they don't know. They have an awareness of their own ignorance on certain subjects or in certain fields. For example. I know absolutely nothing about sky-diving, except that you exit a perfectly good aircraft in order to do it!
Here I have a website for which I regularly recieve compliments from many people across the world-wide-web. However as a project, I am still generally unhappy with it. Don't get me wrong, it is a run-away success and will probably outstrip my capacity to act as sole administrator and webmaster by the end of the year.
So where am I going with all this? This website is still incomplete. With much assistance and input from members I am currently preparing a new technical article on brakes for the Raleigh Twenty. I am acutely aware that there are stll huge gaps in my knowledge base. I have precious little material on the Raleigh Twenty built by Morrision Industries in New Zealand. In fact, I am aware of 2 frame variations and which to obtain an example of each.
As much as I might recieve compliments, honourable mentions or accoldes, there is still much to do. When I created this website my aim was to be the ultimate collection of information on the Raleigh Twenty on the internet. Perhaps this is the best website on the Raleigh Twenty. However I am aware of what still needs to be done to make this website complete.
The online forums was created so that the ever-growing numbers of site members could discuss and exchange information directly. From this I hope to build an online community and to continue to provide new information all the time.
It seems that I set out to put together some data on the website. The available information out there is mind-boggling. Who knew that this little bicycle would gain such a cult status? I don't think anyone ever knew, or would have imagined how quickly this website and this web-community would grow.
It pays to know about what you don't know.
