This book explores the many advantages of small-wheeled pedal machines - convenience, portability, comfort and speed. A small-wheeled bike is ideal for your daily commute, or for taking on holiday. Bikes with small wheels can be folded into tiny packages, and using small wheels allows the production of innovative machines like recumbent trikes - the most comfortable and stable pedal machines in the world. And small-wheeled bikes can be fast - the world speed record for a bike is held by a small-wheeled machine. Major brands are covered, including the Brompton - the best folding bike in the world, the Birdy - a folding bike that uses front and rear suspension, and the Moulton - the world's first successful small-wheeled bike. Want to tour the world with a bike you can fit into a suitcase? Then a Bike Friday is for you. Commuting, touring and restoration - it's all here. Discover a whole new world of cycling! Written by prolific author, Julian Edgar, who is a lifelong cycling enthusiast, and has owned, designed and built his own small-wheeled bicycles.
