Customer Reviews

Only missing a final 5th star because selfishly some of my favourite designs are not included. What no Deblassi? This is really a gorgeous celebration of great design on 2 & 3 wheels. Although there is some technical information on each bike this is really for lusting over the lucious photography and enjoying the well written reviews that are honest and authoritative but embued with a passion for biking.

One of the joys of being a translator is bringing books to whole new audiences that wouldn't previously have been able to read them. But for Franca Scurti Simpson, giving English readers the chance to try Italian author Donatella Di Pietrantonio's My Mother is a River, required more than just her skills with language.
