2.0 out of 5 stars Uncomfortable and not very good., 12 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an odd size. The legs are very short and ride up the shins as I pedal. The pad is also very short and really ineffective. I was squirming uncomfortably after an hour or so. I won't wear them again. If you want good cheap cycling bib tights buy Aldi gear.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great biography, terrible quality e-book, 4 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sean Kelly has always been one of my heroes. It was by following his exploits that I developed a lifelong love of road cycling.

I've been looking forward to this book for some time. First things first. I enjoyed the book and if I had bought the hard copy version I'd be awarding it 4 stars.

I am disappointed by the poor quality of the e-book. I had a flick through a hard copy version in Waterstones and was surprised to see black and white pictures peppered throughout the book as well a colour plate section in the middle. There are no pictures in the kindle version and I think that the publisher should make that clear. The formatting of the book is also poor, no hyper-linked contents page, which is something you get in free e-books and lots of odd line-breaks throughout. I paid £8 to download this book and I feel ripped off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest and entertaining., 26 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well written and honest account of the life of a top dometique and to be honest there's more of interest in this type of story than the bland, "How I Became The Best..." memoirs that flood the market. This would be a great intrduction for anyone relatively new to the sport who doesn't get the whole team thing in professional cycling.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag, 5 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Book of Horrors (Kindle Edition)
There are some very good short stories here and there are some genuinely terrible ones. None are particularly scary or disturbing and I think the title over sells the content.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eccentric and affectionate, 5 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really liked this book. This is an affectionate, sweet natured and sometimes sentimental look at the often eccentric world of British cycling.

I really enjoyed this idiosyncratic look at the influence of the Dutch psyche and culture on the amazing development of Dutch football in the 60s and 70s

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been great., 1 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are some really great ideas in this book and some scary set pieces let down by a clunky plot and flat characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny and clever., 24 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this after I read a review on another website. It's funny and full of great original ideas but sometimes the inane dialogue grates.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite book., 31 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably the funniest book you will ever read. So many beautifully written jokes. I still can't read about the tin of pineapple or the fight with the swans without laughing out loud. A work of genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the biography I was expecting., 4 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This isn't a straight forward biography of the great man but an attempt to discover why Merckx was driven to push himself to the point of destruction throughout his career. I was always aware of just how phenomenal Merckx was and how many races he won. What surpised me was this staggering success was often achived despite significant injuries. Excellent read.
