9783899552843: Velo: Bicycle Culture and Design

Cycling is zeitgeist. With rising fuel prices and mounting ecological awareness, bicycle sales are significantly up. Activity became activism and then lifestyle. Moving on two wheels is now a movement. Velo is a striking visual journey into the multifaceted world of cycling and the diverse tribes that inhabit it. These range from hardcore 2-wheel globetrotters, downtown messengers on fixed-gear bikes without brakes, laid back pedallers on old-fashioned Dutch bicycles, fashionable cyclists on vintage racing bikes, and dedicated fans of high-tech racing machines and e-bikes. The book also gives insider views into the production halls of renowned Italian and French brands as well as the workshops of a new generation of passionate frame builders in the US. Velo presents the design and visual aesthetic of today s cycling culture. The book features examples of T-shirts, caps, bags, flyers, and special equipment such as the spoke cards that bike messengers use in their alleycat races. It also explores the impact the cycling movement is making on contemporary art. In addition, Velo documents the relevance of bicycles in both rural and urban areas. It introduces innovative urban planning concepts such as the new bike lanes that are currently emerging in Manhattan and Copenhagen. Velo is the fast lane into a topic that is both entertaining and socially relevant. The book is geared toward anyone who has a professional interest in or personal passion for the world of cycling.

Review:

Anyone with a penchant for bikes will be impressed by the long list of projects, groups and aficionados in the back of the book. Velo is an exciting read, with its eclectic and übercool tour of bike culture. It will inspire those who usually only ride in the summer as well as those who couldn't live without their bikes. --Spiegel Online
