There is nothing sacrosanct about bike repair. Its pursuit only requires the will to learn. At their finest hours, bikes exist on a level above mere machines, and there's no reason why the joy should end once the ride is over. Bicycle!, written by a die-hard working bicycle mechanic and former courier, offers up everything you need to know to feed and care for your ride, with a bit of bike-versus-car insight on the side. This book cuts through the obtuse techno-speak like a fixed gear through the gridlock, conveying maintenance clarity with humor and radicalism, all the while categorically denying mechanistry's supposed dreariness. Bicycle! encourages any and all to learn the real thrills about autonomy in transportation, not because we have to, but because we want to. With detailed descriptions of all the most useful maintenance tasks and repair scenarios, clearly illustrated, this guide serves the need for a serious rider's manual. Professional bicycle workers - messengers, mechanics, pedi-cab drivers - as well as bicycle commuters have been waiting for this very book.This book cuts through the obtuse techno-speak like a fixed gear through the gridlock, conveying maintenance clarity with humor and radicalism, all the while categorically denying mechanistrya#39;s supposed dreariness.
