AN OVERVIEW ON BICYCLES

The dandy horse, also called Draisienne or laufmaschine, was the first human means of transport to use only two wheels in tandem and was invented by the German Baron Karl von Drais. It is regarded as the modern bicycle's forerunner; Drais introduced it to the public in Mannheim in summer 1817 and in Paris in 1818. Its rider sat astride a wooden frame supported by two in-line wheels and pushed the vehicle along with his/her feet while steering the front wheel. The 1860s captured the realease of Velocipede or Boneshaker - a two-wheeled bicycle with pedals and cranks on the front wheel. It was known as the bone shaker because the combination of a wood frame and metal tires made for a very uncomfortable ride over cobblestone streets. See what happened next on the list:

  • 1870s - High-wheeled bicycle: One of the first models to be called a 'bicycle' (after its two wheels). The high wheel allowed the rider to travel farther with a single rotation of the pedals. Moreover, a metal frame and rubber tires provided a more comfortable ride than the boneshaker.
  • 1885 - Rover Safety bicycle: Invented by John Kemp Starely, England; Featured a strong enough metal to make a chain, plus it had two same-sized wheels and a similar frame to today's bicycles.
  • 1888 - Pnuematic tires: Invented by John Boyd Dunlop, Ireland; Develops air-filled tires that provide a smoother ride than the previously used hard-rubber tires.
  • 1920s - Kid's bicycles become popular.
  • 1940s - Built-in kickstands developed.
  • 1960s - Racing bicycles become popular and feature dropped handlebars, narrow tires, numerous speeds and a lighter frame.
  • 1980 - Spurred by mountain biking and extreme sports, mountain bicycles become a popular consumer item and feature sturdier frames, larger wheels and flat handlebars.
  • 1996 - Mountain bicycles appear in the Olympics.

It's a long way from there to now. Seeing how bicycle develops through time, we know to appreciate what we are having to day and how society grows. Let spend some time to be thankful.

    Having read this I believed it was very enlightening.
    I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this short article together.
    I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and posting comments.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

    When I originally commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now
    on each time a comment is added I recieve four emails with
    the exact same comment. There has to be a way you can remove me from that service?
    Kudos!

    Sebaliknya pada casino mesin anda dapat memilah sebagian jenis permainan melainkan game tersebut ialah suatu program permainan yang telah sediakan, semacam halnya anda bermain permainan pada biasanya pada game
    android.

    Anda semestinya memiliki kartu kredit. Tak semua orang
    yang mempunyai kartu kredit atau pun mengerti dalam cara neteller.

    Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I'm not
    very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points
    or suggestions? Cheers

    Itu permainan yang baik. Saya amat berbahagia memainkan game ini.
    Jenjang pertama nampak hebat dan permainan mengalir dengan cukup lancar.
    Secara keseluruhan, dia memiliki sebagian konsep hebat dan implementasi hebat dari desain game.
    Melainkan, itu agak gampang, aku berharap ada
    semacam slider kesusahan. Ngl, peta kedua agak eh menonjol, tetapi sepertinya ok.
    Peta pertama pasti lebih bagus. Tak yakin kenapa orang mengatakan pemodel 3D seharusnya benar-benar tampan. Tak ada bukti dalam permainan untuk mendorong hal itu, jadi saya tidak bisa benar-benar mempercayainya sampai aku mengamati beberapa
    sumber terverifikasi yang mengkonfirmasi kebenarannya.
    Secara keseluruhan 9/10.

    Setelah

    Anda perlu dapat bermain dengan enjoy serta sabar sebab di tekankan anda bisa mencetak kemenangan dengan prosentase yang tinggi.

    Jangan gegabah atau emosi sebab kalau anda bermain dengan gegabah atau emosional dapat menyebabkan kekalahan yang dangerous.


    Jadi di sarankan awalnya kalian jangan seketika duduk namun mengamati terutama dulu beberapa musuh kalian. Mudah memerhatikan musuh dengan akurat baru kalian mulai
    duduk untuk ikut bermain.
