The Dancing Chain: History and Development of the &hellip by Frank J. Berto
A really detailed book that gets under the skin of bicycle transmissions.
Not just Chains but also Hub gears and key patents/ developments in history of the whole bike.
Cyclepedia: A Tour of Iconic Bicycle Designs by Michael Embacher
Great Book and a Good present for Cyclists, Designers and Bike curious.

There is also an iPad app that brings the pictures to life in 3D.

Choose your technology .. just like the bikes included :-)

Although other books have concentrated on various aspects of science of bicycles they tend to focus on either 'sporting aspects' or DIY (ie for people new to cycling). This book covers all aspects and goes into considerable depth. It demystifies SO many myths handed down in bicycle enthusiast folk law (which in turn is often subjective ! eg ... "this XXXX is better than that YYYY" with the only evidence that the rider thinks so ! The biggest variable in bicycle mechanics is from rider to rider - may 'enthusiasts' prefer to ignore this and focus on unscientific 'gossip' . I recommend this book, over any other book on bicycle design - only wish for an new updated edition.
