I bought 'The Wright Brothers' a biography by Ian Mackersey so i'm reading about their whole life but i've been having a look on the net for cycling stuff and it's interesting. They invented a self lubricating hub and they were the first ones to fit a left pedal with a reverse thread to stop it coming loose. There are only 5 known bikes made by them still existing, here is one http://www.nasm.si.edu/wrightbrothers/a ... ry.cfm?Q=5
