A useful manual for maintaining and repairing bicycles, at least those manufactured up until the middle of the 1970's. The person pictured on the cover is peculiarly androgynous. I can't find anything on the author, although the two people he mentions in his dedication were founders of the Rochester Bicycling Club. I mailed the book off to my son to help him work on an old Raleigh Sprite a neighbour gave me. I love the maxim: "Bikus Non Lubrium Bustibus."
