Everyone fondly remembers his or her first bicycle experience – the wobbly start, the shiny chrome, the ding-a-ling sound of the bell. Avid rider and architect Michael Embacher has shaped that love into a collection of more than 200 models. The author recently published “Cyclepedia: A Century of Iconic Bicycle Design,” his second book on the subject. A forward by fellow enthusiast Sir Paul Smith and crisp, captivating photographs by Bernhard Angerer spotlight 100 bicycles – racing, touring, mountain, tandem and curiosities – from the past century. Each bike is accompanied by a detailed component list and anecdotal stories for insight into its culture and creation. Wherever you fall in the spectrum of kid to connoisseur, this book is a pleasure to explore.
