The Bike Book
The Bike Book, released by teNeues, is a beautiful 220 page collection of photographs of unusual and intriguing bicycles. The book is divided into seven sections, starting with Sport Bikes, and moving on to Urban Bikes, Utilty Bikes, E-Bikes, Accessories, Special and Concept Bikes, and Creative Bike Storage. The selection of bikes is really quite interesting, and the photography is brilliant. Each bike has a small description of the builder and the bike’s specs. Weight and origin are clearly marked, as is frame material. The companies covered range from small handmade builders such as Townsend and Bilenky, to the larger carbon builders such as Cervelo and Scott. The variety is what I like best, as it is not often Cervelo is in the same publication as Calfee. The accessories section is fun to look through as well, and highlights products from companies such as Pashley, Retrovelo, Nutcase and Brompton. The bike storage section features a myriad of beautiful solutions to storing your bicycle collection indoors. Leafing through these pages has gotten me thinking of new ways to liven up the apartment. The Bike Book is a fun read that I’ll be going back to often. It has a prominent place on the coffee table, and will remain there. The book is available directly from teNeues.
