Take Author's Advice With a Grain of Salt
The author makes it a point to push steel frame bikes through out this book and at the same time tries to dissuade the reader from ever buying a bike with a carbon fiber frame. Could it be because his company (Rivendell Bicycle Works) doesn't sell carbon bikes? You decide, but this seems pretty self serving to me. His advice ranges from very sound to downright wacky. Use your own judgement.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

It was good. Real easy reading. Author uses humor throughout which is great! Some of the chapters I skipped because I didn't care about including Frame Arithmetic, Tire Casings...otherwise it was good. I don't know that I would recommend it to everyone though. I'm just a recreational rider...pretty amateur actually but I wanted simple information, light-hearted as it started but then got too detailed for me and so I lost interest.Was this review helpful?
