Bicycles and Tricycles
A Classic Treatise on Their Design and Construction

Archibald Sharp

Up until the publication of this book in 1896, no comparable work existed on the science, design, and mechanics of the bicycle - an invention that revolutionized transportation. While other books on the bicycle have been written since, this classic remains unsurpassed in the thorough, accurate, and highly accessible coverage of every aspect of bicycle design and construction. Over 560 illustrations, diagrams, figures, and tables complement an exhaustive examination of such topics as the development of cycles, kinematics, stability, steering, the frame, gears, stresses, mechanical components, and much more.
