4.0 out of 5 stars A valiant attempt 28 Jun 2013
By ReviewMan VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have not given 5 stars because I feel that the author drove me mad with the same expressions, repeated ad infinitum: "the builder/frame builder". Surely he could have reconstructed the sentences in order not to be forced to use that same expression time after time.

Keep in mind that the purpose of the book is to teach you how to build a bicycle frame without having to spend a fortune on a bona-fide tool set. In that respect I do feel that the author has achieved his goal; however, he does jump about a bit and as a former engineer myself, I can see that his engineering skills are not yet at their peak.

As regards to the silver-soldering involved, what should have been stressed is that cleanliness is next to Godliness.

Have no doubt that if you are committed to building your own frame then this book will be invaluable to you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but needs amending. 6 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Like most people I bought this book to try and build a bike frame at home without it being too expensive. I'm quite knowledgeable about bikes and have found a few areas that I think need amending because they seem to contradict what is being said or are missing some information. It is possible to email the author and get some feedback but it might not be the answer you are looking for! On the whole I think the book is a good idea and worth buying but like someone else has said it needs editing (the author has said he is working on a third edition). All the information is there but you may find that you have to re-read sections to fully understand. If you no very little about bikes I think this edition would be quite difficult to follow but with a little prior knowledge you can read between the lines and get a fair understanding of what to do.
