It’s All About The Bike by Robert Penn


This book was lent to me by a co-worker. We’re both keen cyclists and so he passed this along after finishing it. Only a thin book it’s a quick read – completed on a Sunday afternoon with the FA Cup games on in the background. But a quick read doesn’t mean it wasn’t worth reading. It follows the journey of one man to build his perfect bike as he travels the globe going to all the top component manufacturers. Along the way he drops in details about the history and development of the bicycle. He clearly loves bikes, and that passion drives the book along. By the end I knew a lot more about bikes, and also felt a tad jealous I didn’t have a dream machine of my own

(ssshhhh,..don’t tell my bike I said that)
