Will You Join the Throng?

Columbia Bicycles Advertisement, 1895

The Wheelman on a Columbia Bicycle is an object of admiration. He is gracefully and naturally posed on a wheel which is perfect in construction and of elegant design and finish. Will you join the throng?

I dearly love my 1971 Columbia, but it's not quite as stylish as this one. For more stylish gentlemen a-wheel, see my other blog, The Cycling Gentleman.

  1. Fixed wheel,no front brake and no mudguards. Rear brake? almost like a New York Courier fixie ride of today. The lady on the sidewalk looks stylish also. Thanks Eduard on a fixie or Puch take a part or Raleigh 3 speed seldom walking or driving. !
