1817
The steerable Draisienne was invented.
Germany's Baron von Drais invented the Draisienne, a steerable
bicycle. It was almost completely made of wood, and having no pedals,
riders propelled it by pushing their feet against the ground. At the time,
the speed record for this bicycle was 15 km/h. It was used little by little
until the 1830's. In 1842, it was equipped with solid rubber tires.




                                                                     Draisienne (Hobby Horse)
1839
The MacMillan velocipede was the first of its kind to be
ridden with the legs off the ground.
This two-wheeled vehicle was designed by Kirkpatrick
MacMillan, a Scottish blacksmith. It was the first of its kind
that allowed people to ride without touching their feet to the
ground. In MacMillan's hometown of Coathill, Scotland, the
one hundredth anniversary since the creation of the
MacMillan velocipede was celebrated in September 1946
after an eight-year delay caused by WWII, but recently the
actual existence of this vehicle has come under suspicion.



                                                                 MacMillan Velocipede
1860
The world's first mass-produced riding machine.
Designed by France's Pierre Michaux who was involved in
the repair of horse carriages and the manufacture of baby
carriages and tricycles. He came up with his design when a
customer brought a Draisienne in for repairs. After his son
tried riding it and had difficulties with his feet on downhill
roads, Michaux came up with the idea of connecting crank
arms and pedals directly to the front wheel as a means of
propulsion.




                                                                 Michaux Velocipede
1869
The Phantom, with its ordinary drive, is released.
The Reynolds' of Great Britain released the ordinary-drive
Phantom. It was an epoch-making development with its
light-weight metal frame, first wheels to ever use a double-
spoke construction, solid rubber tires nailed to wooden
wheels, and other innovations.




                                                               Phantom
The 1950's were a relatively quiet period in folding bike history
since during this decade, cycling in general was in decline
worldwide due to the popularity of the automobile and to some
extent motorcycles.
The 1960's saw the rekindling of an interest in folding bikes. Much
of the impetus of this interest has been credited to the introduction
of the Moulton bicycle in 1962. While not a folding bike, the
Moulton (pictured below), with its small wheels, served as an
inspiration for many folding bicycle designs that followed.
By the 1970's, interest in folding bikes had really picked up steam with
dozens of manufacturers in many countries producing folding bikes. A
very popular folding bike from this decade was the Raleigh Twenty
Stowaway pictured below, introduced in 1971 and produced into the
80's. This bike was notable since it was produced in very large
volumes and also because it helped popularize internal hub gearing,
specifically the Sturmey-Archer 3-speed hub.
The 1970's saw folding bikes coming from France (Peugeot,
Motobecane, Astra), Italy (Bianchi, Graziella, Formicone), Germany,
Sweden, etc. In fact, most Western European countries had a folding
bike offering during this decade. There were also a flood of cheap
Eastern European so-called quot;U-framequot; folding bikes like the one shown
below during this time, many sold via mail order or at service stations.
