Leave it to the British to get things headed in the right direction. Enter the Penny Farthing.

Penny Farthing

Penny Farthing I

The problem was that one turn of the pedals on a boneshaker didn't take you very far down the road. Making the front wheel bigger did the trick.

Penny Farthing

They rode this one hundred miles? Seriously? On that seat? They don't make people like they used to...although come to think of it I'll bet I do know someone who would do it.

Penny Farthing Light

Notice that the spokes are soldered together for strength. What a cool light swinging on the axle between the spokes.

Penny Farthing II

I've never ridden one but it just looks like you'd eventually go over the bars. And that would be a long way down!
