Billed as “a unique study of the names and bikes of the world’s most famous, innovative and legendary makers of contemporary bespoke bicycles” it’s essentially bike porn in hardcover format. The book is 240 pages and available for $37.80. You can get it online from several sources, including the Cyclelicious web store. You’ll even have a chance to win a free copy on Monday in the next Cyclelicious “virtual alleycat“.

    This series of tubes is confusinating.

    checkpoint found!

    Ok – I tried to follow the clues – Made it to bikecommuters and failed to find any further clues or links. Clicked on everything I could find on it but no go. Am I too stupid, or are the clues too subtle.
