The Bike-Owner’s Handbook

View all 6 Photos

Anyone who has ridden a bicycle to work, whizzing past the traffic, the wind behind you, coasting in at a fraction of the time of public transport, knows that there is a romance and a magic to cycling. The bike is remarkable in its simplicity and easy to take for granted, but all romance needs to be worked at and your bicycle is no exception. The Bike-Owner’s Handbook is a cleverly designed, travel-sized guide that helps bikers to overcome all those mechanical issue they will encounter on the road. The goal of the pocket companion is not so much to make you a two-wheeled savant as it is to improve the riding experience: “Once you get in tune with your bike, it will change the way you cycle. You’ll be able to treat it with kindness—checking tire pressure, brakes and chain regularly, keeping it running smoothly, and rewarding you with a much more enjoyable ride. You might also find yourself noting your environment a little more closely—keeping an eye out for glass or grit on the roads, carefully avoiding potholes and rocky surfaces.”
