Loved it at the time, Love it now,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Richard's Bicycle Book (Paperback)
Bought the (then new) book. Read and re-read it and loved it. Bought a tourer.
So much of the book is good stuff. Knowledge and experience without being high-handed/bike snob shines through.
There is serious in-depth techy stuff way beyond my knowledge and need, yet simple obvious stuff like Kick-Stands being a waste of time.
Bit of a time-capsule too, this just pre-dates the advent of Mountain Bikes, and I believe there is mention of 'Sustrans' just before it started. Raleigh Industries was the World's Biggest Bike maker, then.
Good holiday read.
Hardtail Mtb is all I need, but the book has me hankering after the lightness and lessness of a good steel tourer.
