    A Little Light Reading

    Not sure if this has been posted -- I saw it on OldRoads. The Google Book Search has apparently scanned these in. Lots of old bike related items ...

    I'm finally getting around to that one as well. After not ever running across a cheap copy of it, I got my local library to purchase one off of Abe.com and I borrowed it. The copy seemed to have been read once (if that). As I got into it, the pages started to become loose, so I returned it for repair. I pick it back up today.

    I love my local library. They also bought a copy of "The Golden Age of Handbuilt Bicycles" on my recommendation, so I didn't have to spend $65 to have a chance to read that one.
