1.0 out of 5 stars not as good as we are told, 29 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These boots are not as good as the hype would have you believe. In time ( not much time ) the uppers will split. Boots shouldn't do this regardless of treatments etc. By far the worse problem though is the sole which is very thin, or wears very thin in the ball of the foot area. They also split so letting in water. Water into the uppers, water into the sole ... not good!

3.0 out of 5 stars lacking essential detail, 18 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good read but I found myself wondering what made Merckx so good. A section on Merckx's power on a bike would have been fascinating. Was it ever documented? Did he submit to scientific testing? What was his racing weight? What was his bike geometry? What did his bike weigh?

4.0 out of 5 stars bbb 1 review, 27 Aug 2008
A very good book for the keen home mechanic.

Version 2 should cover more.

This is a good place to start if you are interested in bike mechanics.
