Format: Hardcover
Though not a comprehensive study it is more a tour of the unique. It shows the more unusual bicycles, which is exactly what I fancy. What this book does show that I have never seen before is wooden bicycles! I love this. There are other books that will cover Scwhinn, etc. What I would have liked to have seen is the all plastic ten speed and other unusual entries from the 70's and 80's. As a former collector, restorer, and bike lover I am buying th book and making a wooden bike.

HASH(0x98b1609c) out of 5 stars One Colorful Book 16 Aug. 2001
By Chad Spivak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an amazing book. The history of the American bicycle has never been more beautifully depicted than on the pages of this book.
THE AMERICAN BICYCLE is chock full of super photographs and illustrations of bicycles through the years. From the very first large-wheeled bicycles to the lightweight speedsters of today, this book covers it all. The book is divided into several detailed sections that fully describe a period of time in bicycle manufacturing. The book covers all of the main producers, especially Schwinn.
THE AMERICAN BICYCLE takes an in-depth look at some of the more unique bicycles, and ventures into the realm of collecting and restoration. This book truly was interesting reading. The colorful photographs and diagrams and the carefully crafted writing make for a wonderful "coffee table book," that is sure to be conversational piece in any household.
