BIG BIKES!

So many questions! How does one get up on one of these things? Where are the brakes? Why are the handlebars so low? How does one stay up? Why design a bike like this? Why are these two gentleman dressed up so smartly to go for a bike ride where they could potentially go for a spill? Why was is it called a "penny farthing" bicycle? Can you imagine???
