Bicycle Ergometer, circa 1915


Found on the Steno Museum Collection website.  Described as “a black stationary bike without wheels but instead mounted on four obliquely positioned legs, standing in a black iron frame on the floor.”  It appears to be electromagnetically braked and is attributed to a design of August Krogh.  Manufactured by the Copenhagen Electric Motor Factory between 1910 and 1920.
