The Racing Bicycle gives the history of many iconic brands of bicycles and bicycle component manufactures.
The brands are in alphabetical order. The history of the company, along with the story of the great racers that made the brands famous is told in a two to eight page format. There are many wonderful photos of important land marks in cycling history.
The book begins with the Atala brand and ends with Wilier Trestina. In total there are fifty eight company histories in the book.
The great thing about this format is that you can read a few pages of the book, put it down, and then come back and pick it up at anytime without being lost. This makes The Racing Bicycle a great travel book.
I highly recommend anyone interested in bicycles or bicycle parts add this to their cycling collection.
