Cycling Photos From The Past




Couple with bicycles undefined Check out the “safeties” completed with elaborate seat suspension and, as far as I can tell, pneumatic tires and linkages-operated hub brakes.



A “Wheelman” with his high wheeler.



A young cyclist undefined How would you like to ride a bike with this kind of trail and rake? The frame doesn’t look all that rigid either, without what we call the “top tube.” But, hey, you can’t beat those 20-spoke wheels!



A trio of wheelmen undefined Who says front suspension is a new invention? Check out the suspension set-up of the safety bicycle on the left!



A gaggle of wheelmen doing a balancing act. There are high-wheelers, safety bicycles, and even a tandem (but don’t look for generous cockpit room for the stoker)!
