The author build his bike step by step. Each chapters about different components of the bike frame, headsets etc... Tells you the development of these components in a fascinating story which connected to the bike building process . Fantastically researched gives you a lot of historical information from the dawn of bike. First I thought I was not gonna like this too much history but enjoyed every minutes of reading. It makes me thinking how important the role of different components and a lot of things need to be considered if you build bike for different purposes.
This heartwarming story also makes you remember those people who took part in this evolution made the the machine a comfortable way of transport what we can call bicycle today. This book is about workmanship, manufacturers,industry, famous races, passion. I loved it!

It grab the essence why is that good chasing the unknown, to be on the road day by day struggling sometimes.You will gain a lot. You will get experiences about the world and yourself.You need only perseverance the freedom of choice and of course courage to take the first step.
