About the Author:

Charles Haine has been a bicycle mechanic for over a decade. He learned to fix bikes at a bicycle co-operative at Oberlin College, followed by stints at several bicycle shops in his hometown of Washington, DC, including Blazing Saddles and Citybikes, and time at both the Bike Spot and Bikecology in Los Angeles. He is currently the chairman of the Bicycle Kitchen, a non-profit bicycle education space in Los Angeles, California, where he has also been a volunteer for 7 years. He has taught beginning and advanced bicycle mechanics to countless numbers of both the general public and also other volunteers at the Bicycle Kitchen to help them hone their mechanic skills and better serve the community. In his spare time he gets into arguments about how to properly address brake squeak. Visit him online at http://www.bicyclekitchen.com.

Book Description Quarry Books, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. More than ever before, bicycle culture is everywhere: from Portland, Oregon, to Portland, Maine, city planners are making big changes to city infrastructure for the increasing numbers of people who are leaving their cars at home and upgrading to two wheels. Biking in the city is no longer just for bike messengers with a death wish. Quarry s The Urban Biking Handbook is a hardworking, illustrated guide to the cycling lifestyle. Not only does it teach tons of repair and maintenance techniques, it shows such popular skills as converting a multiple-gear bike into a fixed-gear bike (or fixie) and how to build a Frankenbike from parts scavenged from several bikes. All techniques and projects are framed by spotlights on urban bike culture worldwide: profiles of bike mechanics, bike builders, bike artists, and more. Bookseller Inventory # AA29781592536955
