So a subordinate clause starts with a conjunction and is dependent on a main clause. It's known or being dependent >.< They can't make their own sentences, it would be incomplete and wouldn't make sense.

In "Early bicycles had one very large wheel and one very small wheel"
I see one independent clause, and one subordinate clause.
The independent is the "Early bicycles had one very large wheel"
the subordinate is "and one very small wheel"
