Bicycling Through Time: The Farren Collection


Paul Farren claims he and his wife Charlie have around 85 percent of the pre-1900 bicycles in Australia – all under one roof in a Melbourne warehouse-cum-museum. Thirty years of hunting them down and collecting has resulted in one of the most impressive early bike collections in the world. It includes 160 pre-1900 bicycles, including hobby horses, boneshakers and Penny Farthings, as well as early 20th-century models.
The collection charts the development of the bicycle, which foreshadows the invention of the motor car in many surprising ways. It also shows wider social change and the role the bicycle has played in female emancipation, war and its progression from plaything of the wealthy to utilitarian mode of transport of the masses.

fifty bicycles that changed the world

The bicycle is the world's most popular form of transport. From the Penny-Farthing, the Dandy-Horse and the Velocipede the design of the bicycle has evolved over the decades both in terms of style and technology. From high-performance cycles to practical run-arounds, conceptual bikes to commercial models, here are the 50 most important, pivotal bicylces from around the world

Cycling Science by Max Glaskin



Cycling Science tours readers through a wide variety of topics, from tire rolling resistance and the difference between yield strength and ultimate strength, to the importance of aerodynamics and the impact that shaved legs have on speed. Each chapter explores a different subject—fundamentals, strength and stability, materials, power, aerodynamics, and the human factor—and is organized around a series of questions: What is the ideal frame shape? What is the biggest source of drag? What keeps a bicycle from falling over? How much power can a cyclist produce? Which muscles does cycling use? Each question is examined with the aid of explanatory diagrams and illustrations, and the book can be used to search for particular topics, or read through for a comprehensive overview of how machine and rider work together.

Bicycle Design: An Illustrated History

The bicycle ranks as one of the most enduring, most widely used vehicles in the world, with more than a billion produced during almost two hundred years of cycling history. This book offers an authoritative and comprehensive account of the bicycle's technical and historical evolution, from the earliest velocipedes (invented to fill the need for horseless transport during a shortage of oats) to modern racing bikes, mountain bikes, and recumbents. It traces the bicycle's development in terms of materials, ergonomics, and vehicle physics, as carried out by inventors, entrepreneurs, and manufacturers.

Written by two leading bicycle historians and generously illustrated with historic drawings, designs, and photographs, "Bicycle Design" describes the key stages in the evolution of the bicycle, beginning with the counterintuitive idea of balancing on two wheels in line, through the development of tension-spoked wheels, indirect drives (employing levers, pulleys, chains, and chainwheels), and pneumatic tires. The authors examine the further development of the bicycle for such specific purposes as racing, portability, and all-terrain use; and they describe the evolution of bicycle components including seats, transmission, brakes, lights (at first candle-based), and carriers (racks, panniers, saddlebags, child seats, and sidecars). They consider not only commercially successful designs but also commercial failures that pointed the way to future technological developments. And they debunk some myths about bicycles -- for example, the mistaken but often-cited idea that Leonardo sketched a chain-drive bike in his notebooks. Despite the bicycle's long history and mass appeal, its technological history has been neglected. This volume, with its engaging and wide-ranging coverage, fills that gap. It will be the starting point for all future histories of the bicycle.

the recumbent bicycle



Recumbent bikes are showing up everywhere. The problem is that not many people know much about them. And the major bike media won't cover them. Solution? This book!

It's the only book that's all about recumbent bicycles. It covers everything: history, science, sports, touring, city-use, innovations, design and home-building. It's written both for beginners and for experts. It is unbiased as regards makes and models of bikes. Instead, it explains the effects of all the various features found on recumbents, offering pro's and con's while leaving it to the reader to consider their own needs.

Recumbents are the most varied bikes on earth in terms of intended design goals, so radically different models can still be great bikes depending on a rider's needs. All types get plenty of respect in this book! With this info and insight, plus plenty of test-riding, anyone can find the right bike for them! ...Or just learn what's really going on with these bikes, for the first time.

DAMAS EN BICICLETA



F. J Erskine
Damas en bicicleta
Cómo vestir y normas de comportamiento
Traducción de José C. Vales
Si alguna vez has querido saber cómo montar en bicicleta con gracia, o proteger de escalofríos tus partes vitales, no tienes más que seguir leyendo…

Publicada en 1897, estamos ante una de las primeras guías para mujeres ciclistas de la época victoriana. Un manual que sirvió para instruir y modelar a las primeras generaciones de arriesgadas amazonas del pedal, incluyendo la selección de la bicicleta adecuada a las damas de la buena sociedad, su atuendo y complementos, la elección de la comida y la bebida más convenientes para tomar durante el viaje, y hasta la organización de divertidas ginkanas ciclistas en tu jardín. Además de afrontar la espinosa cuestión de si montar en bicicleta constituía una actividad apropiada para las mujeres. Un libro revolucionario que es el espíritu de una época en que montar en bicicleta constituía una actividad naciente para las féminas más modernas y temerarias del Imperio.

The History of Cycling in Fifty Bikes: From the Velocipede to the Pinarello: The Bicycles That Have Shaped the World


For an invention that has only been around for 200 years, the simple bicycle has changed the world in many ways. It democratised travel for the first time, allowing ordinary people to travel at reasonable speed without need of a horse, to commute further afield to work and to enjoy the benefits of the countryside. It has challenged social conventions, granting women a new-found freedom, and it has played an important role in wartime, whether used by British paratroopers or in Vietnamese supply lines. Today, despite the prevalence of the car, the bicycle is as important as ever, with more cycles appear on city streets each year. Bikes come in all shapes and sizes and the history of cycling is on of innovation in design: from Macmillan's first pedal-driven cycle to the eccentric Dursley Pedersen, and from the 1960s iconic Moulton to the free-styling BMX, the humble cycle continues to surprise and delight in equal measure. Illustrated in full colour with a wide range of photographs, The History of Cycling in Fifty bikes tells the story of the bicycle through 50 iconic machines, starting with the first primitive wooden two-wheelers through to carbon-fibre super bikes and the designs of the future, celebrating sporting achievements, technological advances and world records along with way.
