Take a look at your bike and you’ll think it’s fairly simple. Not a ton of parts, easy to understand design, overall nothing that needs delving into. After that, pick up a copy of The Bike Deconstructed: A Grand Tour of the Modern Bicycle and rethink your two-wheeled ride. Richard Hallett tears some bikes apart to give you a new appreciation of the some 200 parts working together when you’re pedaling away. The book is loaded with images, diagrams, and easy to digest information on why the bicycle is a modern marvel. You’ll no longer take your bike for granted.
