1. Portrait of Amsterdam’s most authentic bicycle repairmen.

    In the fast-paced rhythm of everyday Amsterdam, Frans van der Meer runs his 90-year-old bike shop as one of the city’s most authentic bicycle repairmen. Frans not only knows his trade, but also harbours a piece of old Amsterdam, where the city is like a village, where neighbours are like family, and bicycles are like legs.

    “A bicycle is a two wheeled, human-powered vehicle, with one wheel behind the other.“

    The first track of the bicycle goes back to 1493 where Leonardo da Vinci made a sketch of a very advanced bicycle. This is not proven to be true though. So is there many uncertainties on when and who invented the
    bicycles improvements along it's history.

    1790, A Frenchman named Comte Mede de Sivrac says to be the first to attach two wheels in each end of a piece of wood. This creation is referred as “Velocifere” or “Celerifere”

    1817, The German Karl Drais von Sauerbronn built the first steerable bicycle, the “Draisine”. He’s particular model is not shown in this animation though.

    1818, In England, Denis Johnson improved the draisine. He’s model, “Dandy Horse” had bigger wheels and was lighter.

    1839, Scottish, Kirkpatrick MacMillan is believed to be the inventor of the first pedal-driven bicycle, inspired by the locomotive.

    1866, Pierre Lallement’s velocipede “The Boneshaker” is one of the first bicycles with pedals attach to the front wheel. He’s fellow landsman Pierre Michau invented a similar model around the same time and it is unclear who really was the first to put pedals on a wheel, although it is quite certain it’s from France.

    1869, The Frenchman Eugene Meyer has the credit for inventing the first high-wheeled bicycle, the famous “Penny-Farthing”. English, James Starley did a lot of further improvements on the high-wheelers and in 1870 he invited the “Ariel”.

    1880-85, G. W. Pressey invented the “American Star” bicycle followed with the “Pony Star Bicycle” by William S. Kelley

    1879, Harry J. Lawson’s bicyclette was one of the first chain driven bicycles.

    1891, W. Scantlebury

    1885, J.K. Starley “Rover Safety Bicycle”
    1890 C. D. Rice
