My husband is a self-pronounced 'bike nerd' and I, loving wife as I am, accept him with all his little foibles. So I knew when I purchased this he would be happy. What I didn't know is that I would get an actual squeal of excitement from him and then suffer through him completely ignoring me for 24 hours while he drooled all over this book, (not literally, but close!) In short... he LOVES it and thinks I'm awesome! He shows it to all his bike nerd friends and loudly notes that his wife bought it for him. The look of shock fading to appreciation is worth the book's weight in gold!!

I bought this for my fiance, as he is an avid cyclist, and he has been reading this ever since Christmas when I gifted it to him. He thinks this is a really cool book and will read it whenever he has a chance to. He likes to show me different things he's found or read and he truly enjoys it!

Not well organized AT ALL. There is not rhyme or reason to the layout of this book. Little new information I didn't already know. Just a bore frankly. I guess if you didn't know anything about the bike you might learn something, but whatever you might find here would be of little use !
