Off The Shelf

Velo-2nd Gear
Bicycle Culture and Style
Publishers: Gestalten

250 pages of quality prototypes, user friendlies and wacky cycles with cool clothes designs, rad cycle accessories also portable flat-pack shops, are what you can expect from this ace publication.

So many styles, designs and fab bike we, don't know where to begin...

Gestalten has done it again in Velo 2nd Gear we checked out what's inside:
✺The ultimate stealth bike a Ducati Pelagro 764 (yes it is a cycle) custom mountain and commuter bike. 
✺Wooden 2-Track with fixed wheel and double chained drive. 
✺The Invisible Helmet, unites fashion with high tech safety.
✺Ultracicli's Ultrabox, a pop-up self contained bike store... nice.
✺Moto Urban Pedal a skateboard debased idea with water proof laminated ply and grip tape.
... and tons more!

Wise words from Gestalten;
"Velo—2nd Gear not only introduces coveted manufacturers, specialized boutiques, and historical tours. It also explains how each bike-related scene cultivates its own distinct codes through the choice of certain frames, jerseys, caps, or bags or by visiting specific events or key establishments. In doing so, the book shows why, for more and more people, bicycles have now replaced cars as the vehicles that best express their identity."

OK, time to get an eye full inside...
