Summary

Summary

An illustrated history of the bicycle in the United States. Covers a plethora of classic two-wheelers from the elegant high-wheelers of the 1880s to the balloon-tired whitewalls of the 1950s, and the sparkly ape-hanger muscle bikes of the 1970s. Also includes retro-cruisers-bicycles which combine nostalgic styling and modern technology.


Author Notes

Jay Pridmore has written widely on the people and ideas that have built Chicago. His Chicago Architecture and Design (1993; co-authored with George Larson) remains one of Chicago's most popular books on local architecture.
