The Social Construct of the Recumbent

Ahmed, Qureshi & Khan (2015) is an interesting research note that as the authors describe is an attempt to “explain the historical and social perspectives that led to the rejection of the recumbent bicycle by utilizing the theory of Social Construction of Technology (SCOT) and Bijker’s two power theory, providing a contrast with the adoption of the safety bicycle.”

The paper is behind a paywall (if you have access to a University library you should be able to get it) but I have a little more from the paper here if interested.
