5.0 out of 5 stars we can expect an excellent result – and, June 28, 2014
This review is from: Bicycle Design: An Illustrated History (MIT Press) (Hardcover)
When two of the most knowledgeable and thorough researchers of cycling history work together to write a comprehensive guide of this type, we can expect an excellent result – and, in this book, Bicycle Design, we are not disappointed.

The book covers the whole of the cycle history of the last two hundred years and is impeccably referenced and cited with a good general index. It covers not only the development of the basic design but of the types of materials used, manufacturing methods and also the progress of components and ancillary parts as well.

Given that the history of the bicycle has acquired a whole miasma of myth, legend and downright deceit from its birth and throughout its development, an important part of the book is necessarily given over to, yet again, debunking those fairy tales. Sadly this is still a necessary task.

This is an essential handbook and reference work for anyone who wants to study or simply to understand the history and progress of the world’s most numerous vehicle from its primitive beginnings nearly two centuries ago right up to the present day.
