So the Bike Snob finally wrote a book. I keep up on his blog and find it amusing. If you like his blog you will enjoy this book. The snob rarely shares his passion and love for cycling in his blog. The book, in which he attempts to systematically and mercilesssly realign the world of cycling he speaks of his passion for cycling and cycling culture. He has a few insider jokes that only cool people like me understand, but it also opens up the world of cycling to non-cyclists. He seems to have finally got over his juvenile fear of "selling out", and simply poking fun at bikes and people that don't live up to his sensabilities. Although he does some of that, it's very clear that the "Bike Snob" is just a catchy handle. Not some kind of fender loving elitist prick.
I'm not much of book reader but I couldn't put it down. It's an effortless read. It has some good illustrations. It's also pretty hilarious. Go buy this book. Do it. Now!
