Louis John Crossley. (1842 - 1891).

Got his own page re "telephone collection":
http://telephonecollecting.org/crossley.html

Part:
"He married in 1865 and built a new home at Moorside. "Manor" would probably be a better description. The house was equipped with twin Otto engines for electricity generation, and was fitted with laboratories and workshops where Crossley could continue his experiments. The house was quite a local feature because of the electric lighthouse he had built on the roof. With careful design of the lenses and electric light , it gave off sufficient light to read a newspaper by up to two miles away. A Gramme generator provided power to run a small electric tramway around the grounds."

Henry John Lawson, also known as Harry Lawson (1852–1925), got his own Wiki:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_John_Lawson

Part:
"The son of a brass turner, Lawson designed several types of bicycle in the 1870s. His efforts were described as the "first authentic design of safety bicycle employing chain-drive to the rear wheel which was actually made", and has been ranked alongside John Kemp Starley as an inventor of the modern bicycle."

Ironic, ain't it? (That in 2010 Charles Spencer King - designer of Range Rover - died after "injuries sustained" in a crash with van - he on his pedal bike.)

From his obit:
"In an interview years later, King was scathing about "stupid" drivers who use big four-wheel drive vehicles for the school run or commuting. He, by then, drove a sporty Volkswagen Golf and was much more interested in lightweight economy vehicles. "


Lighweight economy vehicles. Can you say "ebikes"?

Mr. Charles Spencer introduced the two-wheeler, which has been called "bone-shaker." The wheels of the "bone-shaker" near equal size (Ed: Front wheel 48 inches. Of course.). The machine constructed of wood; heavy, and a rigidity hence the name. Nevertheless, on such a machine, Mr. Spencer rode from London to Brighton, a feat recorded in The Times of Feb. 19, 1869.


And Charlie an author too. In 1870 "The Bicycle: Its Use and Action":

She was in regular use on the Upper Thames during the subsequent decade. On an August Sunday in 1891, several members of the Hygienic Congress took a trip upriver from Maidenhead.

Since this thread is to honour 'Gods' of the ebike, I would make bold and mention the one at the top of this illustrious tree. It's a curious thing that when folks want to speak of honouring or praising something, or make some magnificent point or statement, we can't help but bring 'God' into the speech. So here is to honour the source of all invention, creativity, investigation, experimentation, fascination - God himself! Hey, You started it!

Has no one else noticed that a large proportion of the innovators of the 19th century and earlier were believers? Their belief system was properly oriented and became a springboard for their great achievements in their chosen field. Michael Faraday is mentioned in the very 1st post here. I have just read his wiki write up and am reduced to tears. "During his lifetime, he was offered a knighthood in recognition for his services to science, which he turned down on religious grounds, believing it was against the word of the Bible to accumulate riches and pursue worldly reward, stating he preferred to remain "plain Mr Faraday to the end". Also he refused to be buried in Westminster Abbey! Can you say humble?

I'd like to add Blaise Pascal, the French mathematician.
