# Velocipedes

In the 19th century, bicycles had no chain drive, and the wheel axis connected the pedals directly. This wheel diameter gradually increased until the so-called high bikes (velocipedes) with a front-wheel diameter of up to 1.5 meters, while the rear wheel was only 45 cm. In 1891, Frederick Osmond reached 38 km/h on a bicycle, a world record. How many times a minute did the front wheel turn?
