Creative Bicycle Design and Framebuilding is for the experienced craftsman interested in making steel bicycle frames and forks in a small shop, or well-equipped home studio. It covers aspects of the design process, including creativity, and bicycle geometry. Tools and equipment are discussed, and the process of building bicycle frames is illustrated.This book conveys a functional understanding of bicycle frame construction, allowing the builder to advance toward building bicycle frames by using his own method, rather than by copying how somebody else does it.
A memoir of bikes, blogs and riding through depression from award-winning blogger, Lady Vélo. Jools Walker re-discovered cycling aged twenty-eight after a ten-year absence from the saddle. When she started blogging about her cycle adventures under the alias Lady Vélo, a whole world was opened up to her. But it's hard to find space in an industry not traditionally open to women - especially women of colour. Shortly after getting back on two wheels, Jools was diagnosed with depression and then, in her early thirties, hit by a mini-stroke. Yet, through all of these punctures, one constant remained: Jools' love of cycling. In Back in the Frame Jools talks to the other female trailblazers who are disrupting the cycling narrative as well as telling the story of how she overcame her health problems, learned how to cycle her own path and even found a love of Lycra shorts along the way.
Written for high school and pre-engineering college students, this book compiles resources, information, and stories of engineers who design new and improved products. Ranging from the design and construction of stadiums and courses to the design and manufacture of sporting equipment and clothes, the book reveals what you need to know to work in this industry, and find a rewarding job as a sports engineer. Explore what types of engineers are involved in "extreme" sports like skateboarding to the more traditional sports like tennis, and get advice from engineers about how to succeed as a sports engineer.
