Watch this beautiful illustration showing 300 years of bike designs

This minute long video by Thallis Vestergaard compresses 300 years of bicycle designs down into this visually compelling animation that shows how much the bicycle has changed from its first iterations. 

Fun fact: all of the designs after the first simple 'two wheels and a plank of wood' until the ~50 second mark were released within a few decades of each other - the final ten seconds shows what has persisted as the most common bike design for over a century.
