One for the archidose readers

In acknowledgment of the visionary authors of archidose, who saw fit to link to my blog, and to reward those of you clicking from there to here, I present Dr. Behooving's history of bicycle design, in terms of the Renaissance. From left: Brunelleschi's clumsy beginnings; Alberti's settling upon the essential ingredients; Bramanti's precision; Michelangelo's boredom with that, and Bernini's untamed flamboyance. I will give some thought to the bicycle world's answer to Borromini's tragic quest for salvation through works.

       Brunelleschi                          Alberti                        Bramanti                        Michelangelo                             Bernini
