    Photo of bike in front of garage door

    Apparently, the tradition to take picture of bike in front of the garage door is hundred years old:



    More pics of really old bicycles here, but the text is not English:

    I don't think they had garages back then, wouldn't it have been the carriage house? Or color film or that type of concrete or door or handle or key lock.

    I was once told that only _ussies needed lower than 42/21 gearing.

    Most US states have strict laws against taking photos of bikes anywhere other than in front of a white garage door.

    Our homeowners association requires that bicycles be kept indoors, in a garage, unless they are being ridden. The only exception to this rule is that they may be outdoors if they are leaning against a garage door.

    WOW!!!! Great pics. especially of the dandy (hobby) horse. I've only seen drawings of one but this actually shows it in the flesh, so to speak. They seem to have had actual riding clubs too.

    I always wondered how you would ride it and one pic actually had general instructions on how you would ride a Dandy horse. It seems that you use your heels to propel yourself.

    From my reading the Dandy Horse didn't catch on because it had to be custom fitted to the rider and that was costly.
