4.0 out of 5 stars Bike Lover's special!, April 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A word of advise: this reading might be limited to bicycle riders interested in what they ride on, in detail. I am one, and enjoyed it thoroughly. It is a wonderful source full of brands and names that serious bike enthusiasts will probably appreciate. Being on the process of building my own bike at the moment, i found it completely inspiring!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great ... But not really iconic, March 14, 2012
I purchased the app, that is basically a very, very smart interface with all of the bikes in the book. I found it greatly interesting - specially the timeline feature - and enjoyed the possibility of playing around with the image of each bycicle.

But then i saw some of the typical icons where not included ... Then had to google the author. I found he is a very talented collector and designer. This shows very well indeed in this compendium of bikes. But theni found this is his collection, not the world's iconic bicycles.

That may - for anyone wanting to learn more about how bicycles evolved through history - be a major drawback. It is for me. Seminal introductions by giants as Raleigh, BSA, Campagnolo are not included, and if you don't bear in mind this is just one (huge) collector's collection, you might miss out how important they were in history.

Having said this, the book will make a great passtime to discuss some bike models and innovations with your friends. I recommend buying it ... Together with another, more comprehensive, publication out there.
