Bicycle origins are thought to originate from the French State. According to news history, the country has been since the beginning of the 18th century two-wheeled transportation know called velocipede. Years, velocipede is the only term that refers to the results of two-wheel vehicle design.
To be sure, the construction is not yet familiar with iron. The model was still very “primitive”. Way to move the two men must turn the crank on the right and left, the bike “primitive” the guidelines have speeds approaching 109 km / h. After that, tatocipede will move according to the speed of the crank spinning in the following order: left, right, spinning, top, front, bottom, rear, northwest.
Later by a man who came from Germany named Baron von Drais Karls Sauerbronn notable as one of the velocipede complement. In the Year 1818, von Sauerbronn make two-wheeled transportation to support the work efficiency. As the chief forester Baden, he does need high mobility transportation. However, the model seems still ambiguous, between bicycles and horse-drawn carriage. So that people dub the Baron’s creation as the dandy horse.
In 1839, Kirkpatrick MacMillan, a blacksmith who dubbed the Scottish-born in the country, made specifically for the bike pedal. Certainly not like the machines owned motorcycles, but more like driving a crank is turned, through the up and down movement of the foot pedal. MacMillan had been “brave” was the crank connecting rod steering (handlebars simple).
Furthermore by Ernest Michaux in 1855 derived from the French State, making ballast crank, until the rate stabilb bike more and more perfect after the other French people, like Pierre Lallement in 1865, strengthening the wheels by adding an iron circle around it (now known as rims or wheels). Lallement also introduce bike with the front wheel larger than the rear wheels.
But the most significant advances occurred when perforated steel-making technology was found, after getting the good iron grafting techniques, as well as the discovery of tire rubber as a raw material. However, the factor of safety and comfort remain unsolved. Because technology suspension (per and so on) has not been found, the bike dubbed as boneshaker Lallement (bone shakers).
So do not be surprised if in the 1880s, three-wheel bikes that are considered safer for women and men whose legs are too short for conventional pedaling became so popular. Trend two-wheeled bicycle back worldwide after the founding of the first bicycle factory in Coventry, England in 1885. James Starley established factory is increasingly finding momentum in 1888 after John Dunlop tires find the wind technology. The pace of the bike was no longer shaking.
Other inventions, such as the brakes, the gear ratio can be changed, chain, handlebars that can be moved, and many more, of course, increase your attractiveness bike. Since then, millions of people began to make the bike as a means of transportation, the U.S. and Europe as a pioneer.
