Bike Mechanic: Tales from the Road and the Workshop

Bike Mechanic is a behind the scenes documentary on how far professional road bike mechanics have to go to keep their riders fast, and more importantly, safe. Being a mechanic is a hard and thankless job, far away from the glamour of the podium, but these essential members of the team are always the first up in the morning and the last to go to bed at night - the roadies of the bicycle world. The authors have followed several key professional teams over the past few years and have amassed a collection of wonderful images and experiences of life on the road.
