Overview

The newest in the My Cool series will appeal to bike nuts, commuting cyclists, and design aesthetes everywhere

For some the bike is much more than an accessory for the daily commute: there are the plucky few who have embarked on life-changing momentous global journeys; while for others bike ownership offers the chance to be part of a loyal, passionate, and strong-minded community of fellow enthusiasts embarking on club excursions. The bikes featured here chart the bicycle's progress over the years in terms of design and also celebrates those owners who have given their bikes their very own stamp of individuality. Among this collection of cool bikes are classic racing bikes, high-tech machines that use the latest in material science and aerodynamics, eccentric bikes designed for specific purposes, and rarities coveted by serious collectors. The book covers all styles and makes from around the world, and is divided into such sections as urban; commercial; touring and sporting; vintage and eccentric; custom bikes; eco and community bikes; workshops, shops and cafés; and accessories including fashion.
