Spanning over one hundred years of the sport, Bike! is the in-depth history of the 49 greatest cycling designers who have shaped the world of cycling.

Unmasking the soul of those like Colnago, Shimano and Campagnolo, Bike! also tells the story of landmark classics such as Fausto Coppi's 1952 Bianchi, Graeme Obree's 'Old Faithful', Chris Boardman's Lotus and Lance Armstrong's Damien Hirst 'Butterfly' Trek.
