Trying to find "stumpjumper" to post about "tub thumper"
I found this picture of a velocipede:

The early ones had no pedals so the pelvis and spine (to be polite about it) would take the entire force. And no brakes - it's a wonder anyone survived to keep inventing!

If everything worked perfectly, there would be no progress. Interesting, however, that today's bicycle refers to the structure of the machine and not to the power source. I wonder why...

It could keep me happy for a while though. Your post is in a very old and long out of attention thread. Maybe that's why they overlooked you.Originally Posted By: InterfacecadetIf everything worked perfectly, there would be no progress.
As for bikes, the construction of the bike is of more importance than the construction of your feet. Wheels over heels.
