In 1885 British inventor John Kemp Starley made use of two innovations for the Rover Safety Bicycle: a chain drive and pneumatic tyres – developments that made all previous designs obsolete. With hundreds of profile photographs of classic bikes and accompanying archive images and ephemera, this history analyses models from boneshakers, penny-farthings, shoppers, Choppers and BMX bikes to the carbon fibre racers and ingenious commuter cycles of today. Slightly off-mint.
