On the surface, bikes seem simple, a frame, two wheels, gears, handlebars, and so on. Pretty simple don’t you think? But with over 200 parts in some bicycles, there is nothing simple about bikes. The Bike Deconstructed by Richard Hallett explores bicycles in-depth and shows how all of these parts work as one to be one of the greatest modern machines of our time. Hallett breaks down every part of the bicycle to further explore the intricacy of anything from the mainframe to the gear cassette components. With beautiful photography and easy to understand writing, The Bike Deconstructed is a great book for the cyclists in your family. You can grab it at amazon for $19.
