Description

Now in its 17th year of publication, "The Bike Book" continues to be a bestseller. Compiled by a new author, this sixth edition is a major update to include all new developments in the cycling world along with a thorough check and revision of all existing material. New photography together with a refreshed page design (the first redesign in the book's history) offer the reader a user-friendly and contemporary manual - but still with the clear step-by-step approach for which Haynes is famous.
