We are so excited to share the history of bicycles through an exhibit provided by The Bicycle Museum of America.
Come to Maker Faire to see an Ariel highwheeler, a Shire Bone-shaker or something that might be raced in the Tour De France.
The origins of the Museum come from the Schwinn Bicycle collection. In 1997, Jim Dicke II of Crown Equipment Corporation, a manufacturer of electric lift trucks, purchased the extensive collection of bicycles and memorabilia in Chicago and moved the collection to New Bremen, OH.
From wood, to mass-produced, to titanium, come see how bicycle Makers have solved problems that have transformed the industry over time.
