Written by key cycling personalities including Richard Moore (journalist and author of “In Search of Robert Millar” and "Heroes, Villains and Velodromes”), managing editor of Cycling News Daniel Benson, and Robert Penn (author of “It’s All About The Bike: The Pursuit of Happiness on Two Wheels”) this book is a colourful and detailed insight into the history of each bike brand.
There are over 100 brands listed, from Atala to ZXI. There is even an 1880’s Peugeot penny farthing which consists of almost nothing more than 2 wheels and a leather crafted seat.
Along with fantastic photography, the book unfolds the history of each of the brands from inception to the developments and design principles, and their performances on the professional cycling circuit.
A fantastic read for all bike lovers out there, this book would make the perfect present for any lycra loving father or partner out there, and can be purchased for $69.99 at https://estore.mup.com.au/items/9780522861839.
