Cyclepedia: A Tour of Iconic Bicycle Designs book by Michael Embacher
We love a vintage bicycle, which is why we'll be investing in a copy of Cyclepedia: A Tour of Iconic Bicycle Designs book by Michael Embacher.
It's packed with such things, specifically charting 100 models designed over the past 90 years, models apparently chosen for their 'innovative mechanisms, engineering precision, and commendable design'. Mountain, racing, single-speed, touring, kids', tandem, urban, folding, cargo, and curiosities, they're all here.
Wallpaper has an online gallery of some of those models if you want a glimpse inside. If you like what you see, the book has just been published by Thames & Hudson and available on Amazon now for a discounted £11.73.
