The story of the modern bicycle and the gadget that makes it tick: the derailleur gearing system used on almost all quality racing and off-road bicycles today. Most other books on the history of the bicycle go to great lengths explaining the development from hobby horse to bone shaker to high wheeler, and suddenly stop once the safety bicycle is introduced towards the end of the 19th century. Instead, this is the story of the last 100 years - the history of the bicycle in the 20th century. * A decade of research on the history of 20th century bicycle technology by numerous contributors, newly updated and expanded by the primary author * 1,200 illustrations and photographs, depicting the different stages of the development of the modern bicycle. * Every cycle enthusiast, every cycle racer, every technical library will need a copy of this essential ground-breaking history of modern technology. * Fully revised and expanded with new text and new research: Originally published in March 2000 (ISBN 1-92495-21-X), the book has been unavailable in all markets for over 18 months.
