    High-wheelers (Penny Farthing bicycles) are cool to ride until you have to put on the brakes. Many face-plants, many broken necks. That’s why the modern design using smaller wheels and a chain was originally called the “safety bicycle”. https://youtu.be/8HRpVV_x3N4

    Can you imagine how heavy that penny-farthing would be?

    You know, I’ve always wondered, why such model for bicycles evolved even? Like, why didn’t people think of 2 equal wheels right away when they invented the bicycle? Why did they make a bigger and smaller wheel and took them a while to make them equal? What’s the physics or reasons for such a big wheel in front?

    and after the fad passes, you can use that front tire as a nice grindstone!

    I like it. However, in truth, I have never understood the big wheel in front bike from the old days. I mean, why?

    The first SUV. I guess gas prices were lower then.

    Looks like, even in BC’s days, guys would find ways to spend 30 or 40 times what was necessary for an ego-gratifying vehicle (vs one that simply provided personal transportation)…

    THAT’S a design that would actually move. [Unlike the old design.]

    My husband liked the higher handle bars. He put them out bikes and made them easier to ride, not having to bend over while riding.

    Well, he can peddle the big one, but I don’t see any way to pedal a single wheel.
