5.0 out of 5 stars The best book about bicycles written so far, 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Without this book the art, skills and knowledge of French Constructeurs (builders) would have been lost for ever. Thanks to Jan Heine I discovered a world completely unknown to me (and I live just 100 km from the French border). But I think the greatest merit of the book is to show that in the '40 and '50 they built bicycles made of steel that could weight as low as 7.5 kgs complete with racks, fenders, lighting and a pump.
