Bicycles are a means of transportation with a long history of development. In the past, it became an individual means of transportation, and now, in the face of high environmental pollution, people turn to bicycles for transportation. health training methods as well as the desire to reduce environmental pollution.

Looking back at history, the first bicycle was produced in 1817. The main inventor of the bicycle was Baron Karl von Drais (a German Baron), the bike named after him called the Draisienne (Drais’ car) is seen. is the ancestor of the bicycle.

Drais presented this model to the public at Mannheim in the summer of 1817 and in Paris in 1818. The car was built of wood, and the user sat on it and pushed his feet down the road to move.

The car in the article is attributed to the designer Michel Andree and it was shipped in 1878 with a very special operating structure. The moving part of the pedal will be changed through the crankshaft to make the wheel rotate. The car, after being lost in the US, was bought by a collector and brought back to Vietnam. The current owner of the bike is Mr. Nguyen Son Hoa, living in Hanoi.

It is known that in 1878 two bicycle manufacturers from England, Otto and Wallace, invented a 2-wheeled bicycle called Kangaroo. This was the first widely available bicycle, equipped with the most complete sprocket system. Kangaroo has a much larger front wheel than the rear wheel, allowing it to move faster.

Manufacturers at that time realized that the larger the wheel, the longer the driver’s pedal stroke would take the car to a longer distance. It is for that reason that manufacturers race to make cars with bigger front wheels. Buyers will have to choose a vehicle with the right front wheel size for their foot length to ensure they can use it.

This is also the first time people use the word Bicycle (bicycle) to refer to a 2-wheeled vehicle using human power to operate the vehicle.

The brake system acts directly on the front wheel.

The bike is designed with a very high saddle, so every time the driver gets on the car, the driver has to put one foot at the pin point near the rear wheel and push the car and then bounce up like a horse. The brake system is directly applied to the rubber covering the front wheel. The steering angle of the car is also quite limited, because if the steering angle is extended, the rear part of the large wheel will touch the driver’s thigh.

The bearing system is made of copper and silver.

The part to reduce friction between the frame and the wheel is treated with a copper silver system and has a grease injection point. The saddle is damped by two springs and is height-adjustable. The handlebar part is a straight metal tube and wood wrapped at the ends. The car uses drag spokes with metal rims and solid tires without tattoos.

Anh Hoa cleaned the car very carefully, with a cotton towel.

The overall look of the car is still quite nice, the plating is still bright, showing that the car can be restored to the original model, not completely zin. In terms of historical value and design, many people think that the car is the most unique work in Vietnam.

Every time Mr. Hoa takes it out or cleans it, the car attracts curious neighbors to see it.
