1920s bike races were wild
@yogthos Holy fuck I didn't realize those things were so fast
@yogthos Holy shit, I didn't know they still use those sorts of bikes in the 1920s.
@yogthos I always wondered why it had that ridiculous looking form factor... specifically the height.
Then, a little while back, someone pointed out that this puts the rider at around horseback height; which is what people were accustomed to riding at the time.
@nova ah I wondered about that too, that makes sense. TIL :)
