The only thing that could make this book cooler would be if it was in the shape of a U-lock and tucked into a cyclist’s belt while he performed a track stand.

Project Description

I wanted to create a book about the fixed gear bicycle culture and the recent trend that is developing from the culture.

Production Lesson(s)

Bicycle Chain Links actually work great as a binding method, if you find someone with the right tools to assemble the links together. Luckily, my local bike shop helped me connect the links together correctly without damaging the book.”
