This is another book I liked and that is really complete. Bicycle Technology: Understanding, Selecting and Maintaining the Modern Bicycle and its Components” by Rob Van der Plas was published in 1991. The author is a professional engineer that as a passion for bicycles. What to expect is a very detailed book with lots of exploded views, graphics, illustrations and pictures. It’s easy to read and I enjoyed all the details I didn’t know about parts and frames and construction of a bicycle. Don’t expect an high colored book. This one is black and white only. This doesn’t remove anything from the quality. Who needs to know the color of the little bit of frame you see in the picture anyways?
A book a will most likely ad to my cycling library as the one I read was from my amazing library system.
