Everything you need to know about bicycles and sport cycling -- of the late 80's, meaning everything except for carbon, computers and suspension. Three sections: bicycles and using them; cycle sport; and repair and maintenance. Well illustrated and comprehensive. A rare example of complete coverage, showing both culture and how-to and all types of racing. It's a general book but it leans heavily on the racing. It's from a British perspective.
