Publish it and I'll read it and likely keep it, too. Along with "Bikelore" & all my old On the Wheel issues. A tech-history book will always get my attention.

I don't collect TdF stats or have several competitors' careers committed to memory, but stories like some of those in "Bikelore" are particularly vivid just because i ride. For me, this stuff is more engaging than ficton. And when its cold and icy in Kansas City I can at least read about cycling.
