This wonderful book, The Elite Bicycle, really celebrates the passion of people who are still content to make things, in small quantities, by hand. I'm really proud of the people in this book. They are real craftsmen. It's about an attitude and state of mind and this book celebrates this state of mind. --Sir Paul Smith
a hefty affair, lavishly illustrated by Brown's photography - which will be familiar to Rouleur readers - throughout to support Fife's in-depth narrative. Sure, it'll look great on your coffee table, but you'll be drawn to read over it time and time again. To call it bike porn would cheapen it beyond measure. I rather prefer to call it bicycle burlesque. --Velo Club Don Logan
