1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von tomfrit am 13. September 2013
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Das Buch ist super. Lehrreich, unterhaltsam und genau die Art Humor, die einige Leute in sekundenschnelle auf die Palme bringen kann. Das Ganze wird serviert mit einem Augenzwinkern und einer gehörigen Portion Cycling-Historie. Wer's nicht versteht, sollte lieber Mountainbike fahren.
"The Rules" gehört als Standardwerk zu jedem Rennradkauf beigelegt!
Etwas Abzug muss ich leider für die Kindle-Fassung geben. Die Schrift ist recht klein und lässt sich nicht vergrößern. Hier war man entweder faul oder zu sehr vom eigenen Design überzeugt, um sich um die Lesbarkeit zu scheren und so gilt #5 direkt bei Lesen.
Aber dennoch jedem Roadie empfohlen. Obey The Rules!

Among the very best cycling books I ever read.

It's funny, it sets a very nice cycling mind set and offers a lot of information on the rich history of cycling.

Very easy reading recommended to all cyclists

You'd need to be a Velominazi to believe that the rules should be strictly adhered to. 6. September 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In the prologue to the book, it states that cycling is a mighty sport with a rich and complex history, that behind every racer, company, component or kit, there is a history, a legend - a reason to be passionate for its existence.That this is a sport steeped in tradition and yet fiercely modern, seeking advancement through science & technology.

Velominati is centred on the notion that this passion is the foundation for the enjoyment not only cycling, but life itself and that a sense of humour is a wonderful mechanism for developing and sustaining such a passion.

Although this is a book of rules it's through the rules that the humour really shines & as it states, you'd need to be a Velominazi to believe that the rules should be strictly adhered to. The rules are there as guidelines, points of discussion, style hints and traditions that have been merely formulated into words & then explained, reasoned and passionately argued, but with humour at the core.

Rule #12 - The correct number of bikes to own is n+1, where n is the number of bikes currently owned - this equation can also be written as s-1, where s is the number of bikes owned that would result in separation from your partner.

Rule #50 - Facial hair is to be carefully regulated. No full beards, no moustaches. Goatees are permitted only if your name starts with Marco and ends with Pantani, or if your head is intentionally or unintentionally bald. Also one may never shave on the morning of an important race, as it saps your virility, and you need that to kick @£$%.

Rule #24 - Speeds and distances shall be referred to in Kilometres, apart from allowing you to reference professional races in the proper context, it has the added bonus of making you appear to race faster & longer.

The ninety-one rules that feature in the published book, have evolved over the years on the website and are not in order of importance. Because of this when the book was put together it was decided to group them according to a theme creating five sections: The Disciple, The Ride, The Bike, The Aesthete, & The Hardmen. This gives the rules a heading to loosely follow allowing the velominati's philosophy to be expanded on, and for their knowledge and passion for what is not merely a sport, or a means of transport - but a way of life, that can be defined by their five principal aspects;

1) The best way to become a better cyclist is to ride your bike, as often & as serious as is possible

2) Its history is held in reverence, and the current culture is to be treated with the same humility as of those whose shoulders we stand upon.

3) Approach the sport with the wisdom that evolution is key to survival, that the way things were done, need not be how we do them. love the tradition, embrace the future.

4) We believe aesthetics play a key role in building motivation. In practising to become the best rider you can, you ride your bike through all the seasons & if you look the part, you will feel it, if you look good, you'll feel good.

5) This, the most important, is the believe that in order to best achieve the first four, you need a healthy and possibly sinister sense of humour.

The last one is also key to enjoying this book, I know this is an extremely niche book, but if you like cycling, with its style and heritage, its authenticity and wisdom you'll absolutely get and love this book.

This will improve your cycling better than any performance enhancing chemist's set, or any of the latest titanium/carbon fibre/latest wonder frame material and for a lot less cost.

Do not buy the Kindle version 16. Januar 2014
Von L. Oliveira - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Formatting problems (pages are presented as pictures, not actual text) render it unreadable. Don't bother. Go for the physical book or no book at all.

It is a great read, I am a keen cyclist but the text is sooooo smallllllll and not scale able so poo. Massive file size and lots of blank pages as you move through the book. In short the content is good the ebook version is simply awful.

"Keepers of the Cog" 2. August 2013
Von snailmartyr - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I avoided getting the Kindle version after reading the reviews here, and so ordered the hard copy. The print on that version is also difficult to read due to the thin grey font used. This is funny due to the overly fastidious (fatuous?) nature of some of the advice given within. There's a whole section devoted to the color coordination of bicycle frames, seats, and handlebar wrap with the injunction to just go black, black, black... how about a black font guys? Preferably Times New Roman, Arial, or - drunk and on a dare - Verdana.

The numerous typos and glitches are the result of poor editing. Because between cutting and pasting text off the website, centering the labels to their tires over the valve stem (Rule #40), and scowling at anyone with a seatbag (Rule #29), who has time to spot "Campagnola" (page 121), or that Rules 77 and 81 have the same intro?

Also, they need to ditch the crappy attitude taken toward fixie riders. When I got back into cycling several years ago after a long hiatus, I found that cycling and cyclists had changed, and not for the better. The attitudes were terrible. The first thing you notice is no one waves to each other anymore, unless they are all kitted out like Lance Armstrong on steroids... um, er... well, you take my meaning.

In my day, we didn't care if you were out on Geiger grade riding a Huffy cast-iron tubed mountain bike, wearing gym shorts and a wife-beater... you got a wave and a friendly tip of the head. The fixie crowd is mostly young, urban, and riding strictly for fun. They value spontaneity and individualism and what is wrong with that? They can be immature and make bad equipment choices, but that's exactly where age and experience can be brought to bear. It seems an odd position to take for the self-proclaimed "Keepers of the Cog" to hold hostility toward the sect that literally embraces the concept of a single-cog.

Maybe this is more a polytheist vs. monotheist kerfuffle.

I will say this for The Rules... they evoked passion in me, and that is all you can expect from a work of this caliber (caliper?). I was either nodding in agreement or furrowing my brow in anger.

Rules that provoked the former: 3 (especially as it *should* relate to fixie hipsters), 5 (also known succinctly as "The V"), 7, 9, 11 (even my wife chuckled), 12 (chuckled again), 14, 24, 25, 32, 51 (to quote a line from Jerry McGuire, "Finally, somebody said it!") 60 (obviously), 62, 64, 67, 80, 87, 90.

Rules that provoked the latter: 8, 26 (someone has way too much time on their hands...), 28 (white or flesh colored only), 29, 30 and 31 (repetitio est mater studiorum + nothing beats a Zefal HPX + CO2 contributes to global warming; not ozone depletion), 37, 57 (my fixie daily-driver is covered with these), 64 (if you have time to do this, pick it up Roger Merckx... you're going too slow), and 68 (there's just no substitute for long [SEE: Coppi quotes]).

The rest range from mildly entertaining/funny to interesting/informative, though some of the history seems a bit dodgy to me (didn't 7-Eleven use aero bars in the Tour de Trump and Giro?)

All in all, worth the time to read and savor (savior?). May the V be with you.
