This book is what it is, and a very good example with lots of interesting content and good photographs. What it is not is a serious reference work on the history and evolution of the competition bicycle. So it is a nice and decorative addition to any cycling library and I am pleased to own a copy
This is indeed a beautiful book and something of a work of art. There is only one problem for me. It is not a new book but the old 'Competition Bicycle' with the Eddy Merckx bike on the cover. It has been given a new jacket and slightly altered title. So if you have the older book just remember that this one is the same. One major plus for it is that the price is very cheap when compared to the original title which was very expensive. So, if you don't have the first book, it's a very good buy.
