Bikey-licious! A practical, historic Inspiration!!!,
This review is from: It's All About the Bike: The Pursuit of Happiness On Two Wheels (Kindle Edition)
Be prepared to be absorbed in this bonanza of a bike tale. If the task of creating a dream bike were stripped down just into the practicalities of actually doing it then, for me, this book would fail. However it isn't. Revel in the history and methodology of inventions, changes and tales revolving around the cycle throughout the ages. It is amazing to learn how the individual components were developed and refined and the reasoning behind. The book delves, unembarrassingy, into such diverse aspects that are music to the ears of a cyclist.
The book also imparts many great up to date pieces of information that can be further researched upon. Be prepared to google and you will be transported all over the planet - it's a travel book - it's an indulged personal celebration of a lifetime's pleasure, it's a components catalogue - it's food for thought!
