Back Cover
Living on Two Wheels is the only bike book the average person will ever need. Dennis Coello begins by explaining why bikes are designed differently for different uses. Slowly, he takes you from how to choose one to how to maintain it, on through how to tour and travel by bike. Before he's done he gives you the names of the catalogue, manufacturers and distributors offering the best equipment.

With clear but detailed drawings, he unravels the mysteries of derailleur, hub assemblies and gear ratios. Step-by-step, he simplifies the intricacies of striping, cleaning and reassembling your bike and along the way, he introduces you to the value and potential of the bicycle as transportation

This is not a giddy account of biking through the woods, Nor is it a dry, complex shop manual. Rather, it is a handbook containing facts, lessons and experiences that make it THE valuable reference for anyone interested in biking.
