How to Build a Bike (In a Weekend) by Alan Anderson
The bike that is most fun to ride is the bike that you have made yourself, and the good news is that anyone can do it. This simple guide walks you through the process, from working out what you need, creating the specification, sourcing parts, to the enjoyable weekend spent building your new bike from scratch. When your bike is finished it will need looking after, and the book includes equally clear maintenance guidelines; those expensive and inconvenient trips to the bike shop will become a thing of the past. Beautifully illustrated by Lee John Phillips, the book is a useful self-purchase and equally makes a great gift for cyclists and hobbyists.
