Evolutionary history of the bicycle

The great H.G. Wells said of the humble bike, "Whenever I see an adult on a bicycle, I have hope for the human race". Prepare for your heart to overflow with good feelings thanks to this evolutionary tree of the two- (and three-) wheeled king of transport.

Brooklyn-based Pop Chart Lab has traced the design history of bicycles using over 75 intricate illustrated models, from the push-along pleasures of 1780's Drasienne to modern day hybrids and folders. From subtle frame changes to radical design rethinks (you'll still never get us on an Avatar 2000), The Evolution of Bicycles chart is a must for any fixed gear junky looking for a be-spoke (sorry) print to do justice to their passion.

You can order a print from the Pop Chart Lab here.
