Anyway, in order to properly celebrate this momentous month, I’ve scoured the internet (ie. YouTube) for the most informative video ever made about tubular two-wheelers. And, not to brag or anything, but I was pretty successful. Click here to check it out.
Of all the early bikes featured in the video, I’m partial to the Boneshaker (mainly because of the name) from 1869. According to Wikipedia, the name refers to the “extremely uncomfortable ride.” And, I mean… no wonder! It had wooden wheels and tires made of iron. Ouch!
