Unlike other bicycle history books, which cover only the first 100 years, this book deals extensively with the second century of bicycle development. It traces the development of the modern derailleur bicycle from its crude beginnings right up to the most modern mountain bikes and road racing bicycles. This thoroughly updated and expanded edition includes over 100 additional illustrations and hundreds of text corrections and updates.
