If you are a fan of bicycles, then you might want to pay a visit to the Bicycle Museum of America in the small village of New Bremen, Ohio. This museum is one of the most unusual museums in the nation, sporting one of the largest private collections of bicycles from around the world. The museum also contains memorabilia related to the bicycle history.

The museum was founded by Jim Dicke, the owner of Crown Equipment Corporation, a company that manufactures forklifts. Mr. Dicke is also an avid cycling enthusiast. His collections include bicycles from the 19th century, bicycle tires from the 1940s, and the classic banana seat handlebars of the 60s.
Other notable displays in the collection are: a military bike; the famous high front wheeler, 1892 Victor produced by Rolls Royce; and 1960 Bowden Spaceliner, an odd-looking futuristic bicycle.
