Velo 2nd Gear is a large hardcover book on bicycle culture. The 256 pages are filled with photos of wonderful bicycles wherever they can be found, in shops, races, on the streets. The photos are really beautiful and so are the bicycles. There are also plenty of accessories, specialized bikes, customized bikes and so on.
The diverse bicycle scenes are in the commentary and they look at the history and culture of each area. People talk about their own bikes, the choices they make with regards to the designs and how they cycle.
This is the book to geek out cycling enthusiasts.
