The Circle City Bicycles blog contains info on bicycles, cycling events, pro racing, bicycle touring, and just about anything else cycling related. Since our bike shop is located in Indianapolis, we focus on biking in the Midwest, but cycling fans anywhere in the world should find this blog interesting. We try to post daily Monday through Friday, but we occasionally miss a day. Each Friday we try to have an interesting bicycle related photo.
In an earlier blog about bicycle history, I described how the dangerous penny farthing was replaced with the more modern looking safety bicycle. I guess no one thought of welding two penny farthings together like this guy did. He is using a chain and moved the seat aft, instead of directly over the front wheel. Everything looks fine here, but I can't imagine pedaling this thing uphill. It must weigh a ton. Here's a video with the designer talking about its construction.
