This book features racing bikes from the last 100 years, spectacular photography of racing machines from the Tour de France, the Olympics and World Championships, as well as bikes for everyday use. This breathtaking compilation gathers a hand-picked selection of bicycles from Europe and Australia, and documents developments in technology and style over the past century. Racing bikes integrate form and function and the results are often surprisingly elegant, as well as practical, whether for cycling in competition or for pleasure. The racing bikes contained in this book range from unused models to well-ridden but lovingly restored machines - from early-20th century models featuring wooden wheel rims, to the latest in carbon-fibre and titanium technology.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

David Rapley has been fascinated with mechanical devices and their origins for as long as he can remember. This led ultimately to a career as a professional mechanical engineer and a pastime as an amateur historian. He started racing bicycles from age 13 until educational and work demands relegated this to a recreational pastime and has since maintained a strong interest in this sport particularly its technical, social and historical roots. For the past 36 years he has been a professional restorer of early sports and racing cars, motorbikes and bicycles and was the co-founder of the Austin Healey Club in Australia in the 1960s. After becoming a life member of the Victorian Historic Racing Register and part of the small group instrumental in formalising historic car racing in Australia with the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport. He continued to serve in various administrative and technical roles for the next 20 years and today acts as a consultative technical adviser to the sport. David Rapley wrote the definitive history of Rifle Clubs in Australia, which was given a Special Commendation Award from the Victorian Government for this original research into an unexplored chapter of Australian social and military history. He is also a regular contributor to various magazines and books on historic car racing and rifle shooting and guest speaker.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding: informative and beautiful 9. November 2012
Von Vernon Forbes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Most collectable bicycles that are not in museums disappear into private collections. While a few museum catalogs exist this book depicts the combined efforts of ten private Australian collectors; 103 bicycles are depicted. 30 bicycles are between 1902-1930, 57 are between 1931-1960 and 16 are between 1960-2008. The book is difficult to classify. It is a book about racing bicycles that depicts the bicycles rode by Australian racing heroes. The greatest majority of them are six-day racers from before WWII; 55 of them are single speed bicycles. While there are books about French and ones about Italian bicycles this is the only one that depicts bicycles from Australia. It depicts an Australian "Trooper" bicycle from 1930 that uses a curved seat tube that Jack Taylor got famous for using 20 years later. I had not heard of Healing, Bullock, Carbine, Ixion, Neville or Webster bicycles; too many to list and all beautiful. It includes a number of bicycles I had heard of;48 of them are road bikes with derailleurs. Photographed are 2 Claud Butlers, Olmo, Carlton, 2 Hetchins, Thanet, Hobbs of Barbican, Bates, 3 Cinellis, Peugeot UO-10, Colnago, Klein and Bianchi. It mentions bicycles, racers and races I have not seen previously described. While most Americans are familiar with Sun Tour derailleurs I was unaware that the company was named after Australia's greatest bicycle race; the Sun Tour. This is the only book I have ever seen that documents the contributions of Australia to bicycling, describing Australian races, frame-makers and champions familiar to many Australians.

Each bicycle gets 2 pages with usually 4 pictures with a complete list of the equipment on it and a couple of paragraphs about the original owner, collector or races it was in. Instead of being shot in the studio most of the photographs are all outside, leaned against a wall. One collector had professional studio shots taken shown against a back background. The only problem with the book is that it will make you want more. You will find the descriptions too brief and you will want to see more close-ups of the equipment of each bicycle. It compliments any library that has The Competition Bicycle: The Craftsmanship of Speed, Italian Racing Bicycles: The People. the Products. the Passion by Guido P. Rubino ( 2011 ) Hardcover as well as The Golden Age of Handbuilt Bicycles.

3.0 von 5 Sternen steel is real 7. August 2013
Von Mr. Iowa City - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I have to confess: I'm obsessed with bicycles. When I ordered this book I was excited because a review mentioned "Fantastic images". I have to say the images are mediocre at best. In general, the photography reminds me of pictures you see on Ebay--the photographer didn't explore each bicycle as well as they should have. That being said, it's a good book (not great), with an interesting premise: 100 years of racing bicycles, each year being represented by one bike. if you like the premise you may also like:
100 Jahre 100 Bilder: Eine Geschichte Der Fotografie (which is well done).

Bottom line: a disappointing experience & be careful when reading amazon book reviews.
