Tom has this book for sale:

"The Custom Bicycle" by Michael J. Kolin and Denise M. de la Rosa. It is in good condition except there is slight water damage (very slight warping) on the outside edges of the pages. $25.00 including media mailing. >>

This book is, in my opinion, essential basic reading for those of us keen on hand built lugged bikes. If you haven't read it, do so ASAP!

Although there are some slightly biased views and some incorrect info, on a whole this is huge leg up to learn and understand. This information does not exist elsewhere in as easy to digest form... And the visits to the workshops are invaluable.

If you haven't read it yet, buy Tom's and then resell it to another CR list member. (If you are near Greensboro, you are welcome to read my copy!)

If any are interested, I have the following two books for sale:

"The Custom Bicycle" by Michael J. Kolin and Denise M. de la Rosa. It is in good condition except there is slight water damage (very slight warping) on the outside edges of the pages. $25.00 including media mailing.

"The High-Tech Bicycle" by Edward Stevenson. Hard bound copy, no paper cover, and slight tearing in the clothing covering. The pages are clean, good condition. $40 including media mailing.

$60 for both including mailing. I have pictures I could send if that becomes the deciding factor.

Cheers.
