    PBS special, history of bicycles ~ 1990s?

    About 15 years (?) ago there was a PBS (?) special on the history of the bicycle including a segment on 3 speed hubs, Gary Fisher, etc etc... it included the Queen Bicycle Song... we had it on a vhs tape at my parents house and I watched it quite a bit. I tried to find it on youtube, etc but can't seem to come up with anything.

    Anyone else seen / remember it??

    I don't recall that specific PBS show, but if you have an interest in the history of the bicycle, you might enjoy this interview of the author on the history of the bicycle by the British radio program, The Bicycle Show. http://odeo.com/episodes/23285630-8-...don-audax-ride

    P.S. You might enjoy this old Newton's Apple episode on the physics of bicycle riding. http://www.newtonsapple.tv/video.php?id=1406
