A few months ago, I linked to Bob Shaver’s Patent Pending blog in one of my posts. For those of you who missed it, the bicycle technology section of Bob’s site is definitely worth a second mention. Yesterday, Treehugger wrote about the blog and featured the above pictured full suspension bike from 1890 as well as the 1933 hour record recumbent. Many other really interesting 19th century innovations are featured on the site and are worth a closer look.
Thanks to Philip at Spinopsys for reminding me of the patent pending blog and for pointing me to the Treehugger post.
