I am not a specialist in bicycles and do not have in-depth knowledge to critically acclaim the book. However, I have assumed Chris Boardman knows what he is talking about because I remember him riding the Lotus bike in the Barcelona Olympics and pretending to be superman when he set the 'hour-long' record. Obviously, with Boardman bikes he has inputs into their design and he has contributed to the current successes in British cycling. Others may want to comment on which bicycles are included and omitted and the factual content, but so far I am enjoying reading it a lot - so thank you Chris Boardman for sharing your knowledge.
