Cars 12-Inch Boys BMX Bike by Huffy
Cars 12" Boys Single Speed, manufactured by Huffy.
Disney/Pixar fans who are just learning how to ride will love exploring the neighborhood on this brightly colored Cars-themed 12-inch bike. Manufactured by Huffy, the bike offers such construction details as a sturdy steel diamond frame, a steel unicrown fork, and a steel one-piece crank. The bike's training wheels, meanwhile, offer stability while learning but also detach in minutes when your child is ready to ride solo. Perhaps the coolest details for kids, however, are the Cars graphics, which are plastered on the frame, padded saddle, and chain guard.

Other features include rear coaster brakes, clear grips, and steel 12-inch spoked wheels with real rubber tires. The bike carries a six-month warranty on parts and a lifetime warranty on the frame.
EC Viets - Wageningen 1900s
A Must-Have-Seen ad when you are interested in Dutch bicycle history! The bicycle maker E.C. Viets Eli Cornelis Viets (1847-1921) made (wooden) bicycles since 1880. He established his enterprise on the old main road between Utrecht and Arnhem just across the road of Hotel 'De Wereld' (= 'The World'). So the hotel quests could easily rent or buy a bicycle at Viets. Smart! He also advertised with an 'Automatic Cycle Teacher', "An apparatus with whom everybody can learn cycling in some hours, and inside". "No fear of falling down." "No people thinking they never will learn it." About this nice advertisement Top left and right: "Federation-Approved Bike Repair, 1rd Grade" Below the line: "Trading and Renting Bicycles Educational Institute for Bicycling Blacksmith and Stove Warehouse, Prams, Racing Bikes etc." 'Bondsrijwielhersteller' refers to his recognition as a bike repairer by the ANWB. At that time ANWB stands for Algemene Nederlandse WielrijdersBond (General Dutch Bicyclists Federation). Today the ANWB calls itself a 'Tourist Club' (= 'Toeristenbond') and acts primarily as an Automobile Association. Since 1975 the interests of Dutch cyclists are promoted by the 'Fietsersbond' (= 'Cyclists' Union'), 'For safe, fast and fun biking'. Wageningen is a then village / now town in the Dutch province of Gelderland. Nice to know On May 6, 1945, the German general Blaskowitz surrendered to the Canadian general Charles Foulkes, which ended the Second World War in the Netherlands. The detailed terms of the capitulation were signed in a farmhouse in the village of Nude, just outside Wageningen. The Generals had negotiated the terms of surrender in the Hotel 'De Wereld' on May 5, 1945 in the presence of Prince Bernhard (commander of the Dutch Home Forces). The 'Fiets' controversy Today, there are over 12 million bicycles in The Netherlands, and we call them simply 'fiets'. Nobody knows why. And no word has fascinated etymologists more. In 1919 and again in 1948 the Dictionary of Dutch Language (Woordenboek der Nederlandsche Taal) stated that the word 'fiets' originated of Viets, the surname of the Dutch bike maker in Wageningen. But it turned out that it could not be true, because the word 'fiets' was already in use in 1870. There are some other explanations, or stories if you like, about the origin of the word fiets. To name the three most important: - Degeneration of the French word velocipede. So: velocipede > vielesepee > vietsen > viets > fiets? (Suggestion done in an Dutch etymological dictionary of 1936.) - Sound-imitation to show speed: ffts. - Coming from the Southern dialect word 'vietsen', meaning fast moving. Velocipede, rijwiel, fiets The Dutch lawyers, doctors, manufacturers, etc.; the elite which began bicycling, used the French word 'velocipede' (but without the accent marks). Bikes were expensive in the beginning, so a chic word was preferred. But as more people took the bike, grew the need for a better Dutch word. That word was rijwiel. Rijwiel + wielrijden became the legal terms for the bicycle and riding a bicycle. Only in the 1960s in the Dutch legislation the term 'rijwiel' has been replaced by 'fiets'. It had to be because since the beginning of the century 'fiets' was already the normal word. As you saw with a saw and drill with a drill, you can also viets with a viets. In this way around 1870 very probably the word "viets" or "fiets" arises from the Brabant dialect word "vietse" which means "quickly moving forward". It could also explain why "fiets" was originally written with a v. And why the word has long had a low status. It was a 'folk word' the ANWB wrote. A word used by the workers.
