Format: Hardcover
I read this book from cover to cover. If you are looking for a gift for a bicycle racer, tourist, engineer, or mechanic, this could be it: In a short and readable history of 50 bicycles, it covers the evolution from the hobby-horses of the early 1800s to the amazing racing machines of today. Plus some bizarre prototypes and big breakthroughs, like the first commercial mountain bike. The illustrations, photographs, and anecdotes are good fun too.

This book is not what you think. One example, they say the Raleigh chopper changed the kids bike world, seriously? Everyone knows that Schwinn with it's Stingray was responsible for the cool looks of kids bikes. Schwinn was first, all the rest are "me too" copies.
Maybe, in his country, he really believes his book is correct. I am a bike collector and do not agree with his choices. But, that's what makes the world go around, everyone has their own opinion.

Got this for my husband who loves bicycles. There are some bikes he had not seen! It's a compact book with nice pictures and a brief overview/history with each bike.
