The vintage bicycles depicted here are from the Pierce Miller collection owned by the University of California in Davis. Pierce Miller was a rancher near Modesto with an avid interest in the history of transportation. He amassed over one hundred horse-drawn vehicles of every description, a handful of antique automobiles, and a large collection of bicycles. Miller exhibited the vehicles and bicycles in a roadside museum of transportation history until his death in the 1960s. In the 1940s, Miller purchased the entire bicycle collection from Walter Nilsson, a well-known vaudeville performer whose stage specialty was acrobatic bicycle and unicycle riding. Nilsson collected the bicycles while on tour around the world with his cycling act.
The University bought the Miller Collection in 2000 when it became available for sale. A federal Transportation Enhancements grant was the primary funding source.
UC Davis, the City of Davis, and an avid group of cycling and history enthusiasts are looking for a permanent exhibit space for which the Miller collection will provide the core of what is planned to be a major bicycle museum.

The Pryor Dodge Bicycle Collection offers a glimpse of the 19th Century from the handlebars of a bicycle. Over over 2,000 original artifacts from Europe and the U. S. portray the technical, social and esthetic aspects of this medium during its first 100 years, dating from 1819.

After two years of planning and building, the new Marin Museum of Bicycling will formally open its doors on June 2015. Located in the middle of Fairfax, California, the MMB’s primary purpose is to serve as the new home of the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame. Previously located in Crested Butte, Colorado, the MBHoF recognizes individuals who have contributed to the sport in the areas of advocacy, industry, journalism, pioneers, promotion, and racing history. After 15 years in the Butte–a beautiful town rich in mountain bike history, but tiny and difficult to access–the MBHoF moved to a bigger space, in a more accessible and population-dense location.
Despite a more urban location, Marin County is arguably the place where the mountain bike was born, making it a mostly-appropriate location for the sport’s hall of fame. I say "mostly" because Marin County was also the place where the anti-mountain bike movement began and riders in Marin continue to struggle with legal access to singletrack.

The main motto "The most unusual bike shop on the planet" concisely describe everyday works there. On the top of it the fantastic bicycle collection is there and many machines from this collection are possible see on their webside. It's great idea to show bicycles by this way. Unfortunately it's not common always preserve bicycles in original condition, but there all machines are in exceptional lovely condition. Thank you and congratulation.
