Mr. Otto’s Dicycle ca. 1880

by

No idea how this works, how to steer, how to brake, but it was touted as a safety bicycle for people unable to handle a penny farthing. I’m guessing that if you came to a quick stop, you’d be either thrown face-first onto the pavement, or you’d rock back and forth until your lunch suddenly appeared on your lap. Once you started pedaling, the same rocking thing would happen again with the same result, only messier.

I want one.
