Group of bicycles of various types and sizes image
The second image in the lead is good in principle, in that it attempts to show a variety of different bicycles. But in spite of the caption, "Group of bicycles of various types and sizes", I see maybe two types of bicycles, at most, and only one basic size. There's no children's bikes, no 20" BMX race or stunt bikes, no mountain bikes, no road bikes, no race bikes or track bikes, no Dutch bikes or cargo bikes, no fixies, no 29ers, no recumbents, and no trikes. All of them are steel framed (no aluminum, no crabon), city cruisers. The only variation is some are men's and some are women's. So a much better image of this kind ought to be possible, one that really does have at least 5 if not 10 distinct types and sizes of bicycles. --Dennis Bratland (talk) 22:30, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
"Because of its persistent image as a "women's" bicycle, step-through frames are not common for larger frames."
That´s complete and utter bullshit, written probably by someone from a country where cycling is regarded solely as sports activity. Bicycles for daily use are very often of this type, and produced and sold today in great numbers. Bicycles for older people, the majority of E-Bikes, rental bikes (the ones you order via mobile and can pick up and leave at any corner in the city), cycles for anyone who does not want a racer, for old-fashioned women, etc. etc. --220.127.116.11 (talk) 16:19, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
Find a source, otherwise your observations are no better than the current text, fix the article, and then you can stop complaining about it. -AndrewDressel (talk) 16:47, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

This article lacks any proper description of types of bicycle, such as track bicycle, road bicycle, hybrid, racing bicycle, etc, together with a scientific analysis of efficiency and function.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs) 16:42, 27 July 2015
