As you can imagine, the bicycle wasn’t the first thing that the wheel was put to use on. Back when they first invented the wheeled-vehicle – around the same time the Sahara desert was starting to form – it was more for practical use than having fun.
But as you can probably guess, we reckon the bicycle is still the pinnacle of the wheeled evolutionary process. Eat your hearts out chariots and… err, significant agricultural innovations of the 35th century BC.
Still, even the bike wheel is often a point of contention. Your wheel can be big. Your wheel can be small. Your wheel can be colourful, or fat, or apparently, even hung above your dining room table instead of on the front of your bike.
Sorry, what was that last one?
