Cycling in Sydney Australia
Not so much a "bicycle built for two" as a "bicycle" built backwards. See the error?
must be for europe? and the saddle looks uncomfortable, like all mine
Chain etc on the wrong side.
It's not, of course, a real bicycle but, even at the risk of appearing pedantic, I find it unsettling to see such a mistake in the representation of that thing we all love above all else. (Said with absolutely NO hyperbole.)
I have commented previously on the inability of almost everyone who tries to draw a bicycle properly. It seems the disease has spread to people who build bicycle replicas as well. Sigh.
I agree. I think that most drawings of bikes tend to have the bike going towards the left of the page. Consequently everything is rs up. It particularly annoys me on drawings of those wonderfully social cycling machines - tandems!
What? You mean like this?
There are so many things wrong with the Simpsons' tandem that it's hard to take it seriously... ;-)
For one, it doesn't actually appear to have any crossover drive-train connecting the left side cranks to the rear wheel. For another, no brakes. And, also, various frame tubes don't connect up! Good to see they take safety very seriously otherwise though, putting Maggie in a helmet; which looks like it would weigh more than a baby's head.
Speaking of other things it is hard to take seriously, check out the banner pic on this page. Before they change it.
It's many years since BNSW was an organization that knew anything about bikes, so this type of ineptitude isn't surprising. Their job is to collect membership fees so that they can pay their employees, nothing more!
