Vintage-Bicycles-How-to-Find-and-Restore-Old-Cycles

Gianluca Zaghi, the man behind Vintage Speed Bicycles, has spent a lifetime rebuilding and restoring classic racing bikes from the great Italian, French and Swiss houses of the 1950s–1970s. Zaghi has decided to pass on some of his considerable knowledge to the rest of us neophytes with his new book Vintage Bicycles: How to Find and Restore Old Cycles. The 200+ page hardcover tome is just as much a coffee table display piece as it is textbook / reference material when it comes to creating your own vintage masterpiece you can ride. The book covers the arts of finding, restoring and maintaining bikes as well as how to setup your bike for commuting purposes, countryside rides or vintage cycling events. Zaghi also dives into thirty of the most popular vintage models and the historical significance of each. Vintage Bicycles: How to Find and Restore Old Cycles will be released on October 31.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
