#1 very true, thats probably why it never caught on. But its nice to see that people at least tried to invent a faster method of transport back in the 1860's!!

#1 against a modern bicycle, there's no contest, but the “bicycles” of that era were no better than this contraption. I doubt the the original builder was trying to compete with bicycles in 1867. Much more likely that they wanted to compete with the horse.
