The Bike Deconstructed: A Grand Tour of the Modern Bicycle

The Bike Deconstructed: A Grand Tour of the Modern Bicycle

by Richard Hallett

Richard Hallett takes apart the modern road bike and goes over each part, photographing and detailing how the part works by itself and as part of a whole. Bikes can appear simple, but they can be fairly confusing machines, and it's important to understand how a bike works in order to ride it with maximum safety and efficiency. Also, understanding how your bike works can save you money; instead of having to take your bike to a mechanic, knowing how it works can allow you to fix it yourself.
