From Sprockets to Rockets

I recently had to come out of the closet to my readers and admit that I am a bicycle nut. There is something about wheels turning and the feel of the wind in your face that has always excited and caused me to expand my ownership of different bicycles. It extends from this high end Cannondale that for me means strictly business, Tour De France kind of speed;

to the middle of the road, ride anywhere mountain bike;

and finally to the just for fun work-horse cruiser that was recently stolen:

It was during my search online for parts to replace the stolen cruiser that I stumbled upon this wonderful video on the history of bicycles or From Sprockets to Rockets.


  1. Totally cool.. A lot of info on that video. I love that man's sense of humor... Never knew they had wooden bikes.. that would be neat to have one mounted on a wall not only as a piece of history but art... And a bike does give u freedom as well as the obvious- exercise...

  2. Totally cool is right. I loved it!

  3. Anyway it's a nice picture...
