Talk:1673: Timeline of Bicycle Design
I have deleted the entire paragraph with the Alternatively, explanation that this could be an analogue to the process of meiosis and pregnancy... It seems extremely far fetched to me... Kynde (talk) 13:01, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

The randomness of the designs reminds me of the strange designs produced by the genetic evolution AI in the game BoxCar2D.126.96.36.199 15:05, 27 April 2016
I third the above comments. It could also help explain the title text, as the 1955 panel shows a broken and failed cycle, which can happen when a detrimental mutation (like weak wheel linkages) is selected by the AI to be passed on.
