About this book : Choosing to ride a particular bike conveys an attitude and a way of life. Vélo-2 nd Gear illuminates and celebrates contemporary bicycle culture’s diverse scenes. From classic racing bikes to hightech speed machines, from rough fixies to fashionable city cruisers and hardworking cargo bikes, this book showcases today’s most outstanding and unusual bicycles and their riders. Vélo- 2 nd Gear not only introduces coveted manufactureres, specialized boutiques, and historical tours. It also explains how each bike-related scene cultivates its own distinct codes through the choiceof certain frames, jerseys, caps, or bags or by visiting specific events or key establishments. In doing so, the book shows why, for more and more people, bicycles have now replaced cars as the vehicles that best express their identity.
