1892 The Express
This bicycle is an example of a hard tired safety. These bicycles were the transition between the ordinaries and the pneumatic tired safeties. The use of a chain drive and different sprocket sizes facilitated wheels of about the same diameter. They were only made for a few years as the pneumatic tires took over about the mid 1890's and hard tires became obsolete. This bicycle was built by the Mecham Arms Co. of St. Louis.
