More than ever before, bicycle culture is everywhere: from Portland, Oregon, to Portland, Maine, city planners are making big changes to city infrastructure for the increasing numbers of people who are leaving their cars at home and upgrading to two wheels. Biking in the city is no longer just for bike messengers with a death wish. Quarry's The Urban Biking Handbook is a hardworking, illustrated guide to the cycling lifestyle. Not only does it teach tons of repair and maintenance techniques, it shows such popular skills as converting a multiple-gear bike into a fixed-gear bike (or fixie) and how to build a Frankenbike from parts scavenged from several bikes. All techniques and projects are framed by spotlights on urban bike culture worldwide: profiles of bike mechanics, bike builders, bike artists, and more.
