Now in the 233th year of evolution, the bicycle has been ever changing to fit a variety of riding styles and transport needs. A new poster from Pop Chart Lab depicts this evolution in a family-tree style format.
More than 70 bikes are laid out chronologically and organized by utility. Color-coded lines indicate different styles and tell the story of how each lineage has evolved over the years. We took a close look at the chart, which is available online for $22, in the images below. —Amy Oberbroeckling
