Classic Bicycles | High Wheel Kangeroo

Classic Bicycles

In an age before bicycles were even named bicycles, there were the High Wheel models, which were a challenge for those attempting to ride because of the numerous accidents related to the poor balance of the front high wheel which moved so quickly, causing the inbalance to happen.

Here's a photo of the 'Kangeroo,' from John Kemp Starley, developed in 1878.
