I've often wondered why, after a century of innovation, modern bicycles look so similar to the ones that people rode in the 1890s. After all the innovations in the world since that time, why haven't we improved on the bicycle? That question drove me to compare a brand-new, just-out-of-the-box bike to one that was built in 1895. And maybe you'll be as surprised as me at the similarities and the differences between them. A big thanks to the Reynolds Museum, particularly to Juanita Voth, who shared her time and knowledge. You should visit the museum: https://reynoldsmuseum.ca/ The modern bike is a 2024 Priority Eight (and it's super fun to ride). The old bike is an 1895 Singer Ladies' Safety Bicycle (and it's fascinating). 0:00 Introduction 1:03 Juanita's welcome 1:20 The iconic penny farthing 3:04 The safety bicycle 3:39 Comparing shape 5:55 Comparing gears and transmission 7:36 Comparing brakes 8:23 Comparing rideability 10:00 Overall comparison Historical footage in this video is as marked, from the U.S. Library of Congress, Archive.org (Gould), Science Museum Group, Powerhouse Museum, Pathe, Denis Shiryaev (he upscaled the archive video from San Francisco). #cycling #bike #commuting A huge thanks to my sponsors this year.

(Of course, you don’t need anything fancy to ride a bike, other than a bike, but these are Amazon affiliate links, and I get paid a small commission if you buy them 😉) • If you ride a bike in the city, you need a good lock. Litelok is a good option: us.litelok.com/SHIFTER • If you wear a helmet and like to be well-lit, consider the Lumos: ridelumos.com/shifter • Hindsight sunglasses have mirrors so you can see behind you while you ride.
