[May 17, 1892] H.F. Campbell rides his Keating bicycle down the stone steps of Providence City Hall - not once, but nine times - in a “dramatic” demonstration of strength. 

Fastforward 125 years and we have Danny MacAskill and Santa Cruz Bicycles in a similar, though slightly more progressive spectacle. As riders of these noble machines, I think it is incredibly satisfying to see that our rambunctiousness and fun-havery has not changed all that much over the years.
