Bicycle!, written by a working bicycle mechanic, covers everything you need to know to feed and care for your ride. This book cuts through the obtuse techno-speak and delivers maintenance clarity with a touch of humor and radicalism, while categorically denying mechanistryís supposed dreariness.
Bicycle! is about encouraging society to learn for themselves how to make their bikes work, not because they have to, but because they want to.
With detailed descriptions of all maintenance tasks and repair situations, clearly illustrated with photographs and drawings, this guide will serve the need for a serious rider's manual. Professional bicycle workers - messengers, mechanics, pedi-cab drivers - as well as bicycle commuters have been waiting for this book.
