The first bicycle to be called a \"safety\" was designed by the English engineer Harry John Lawson (also called Henry) in 1876, although other bicycles which fit the description had been developed earlier, such as by Thomas Humber in 1868. Bicycles can be categorized by function, number of riders, gearing, sport, and means of propulsion, position of the rider or as here the frame type. This is a type intended for use by females, with a lowered top tube due to consideration for skirts. Porteur bicycles are a kind of cargo bicycle designed for carrying loads on a platform rack attached to the fork. Despite the name, these were popular with wide variety of trades during the first half of the 20th century, particularly in the United Kingdom. Using a sturdy welded chromo or aluminum frame derived from the mountain bike, the city bike is more capable at handling urban hazards such as deep potholes, drainage grates, and jumps off city curbs. In most of these types the riders ride one behind the other (referred to as tandem seating). Exceptions are \"The Companion\", or \"Sociable,\" a side-by-side two-person bike (that converted to a single-rider) built by the Punnett Cycle Mfg. Co. in Rochester, N.Y. in the 1890s.

The Bicycle. Some personal history: Schwinn made the Varsity from 1959 to 1987. Bicycle sales soared in the 1970’s in part due to a rise in oil prices. I paid about $100 in 1975 to own my very own “10 speed”.
