Love your blog, but I think you're missing the point. Obviously the bike would be a major nuisance in battle, but it would be very useful for getting people to the front. Once there they would dismount to fight (I hereby trademark the term "velocipede dragoons.")--I realize the pictures don't show that, but I think they're intended to show that the bicycles wouldn't have to be completely discarded even in combat. You might want to look into the battle of Dien Bien Phu in Indochina, when the Vietnamese used cargo bicycles to encircle the french with artillery.
