"From the sleek to the strange to the truly innovative, 100 detailed bike profiles will captivate cycle aficionados." - Fast Company

‘An extraordinary read … arguably the most comprehensive and visually satisfying book of bicycle portraits ever published’ – The Sunday Times [cycling blog]
'This book is not to be missed. Buy it, borrow it from a pal who has it, whatever. You’ll love it' – Spinwell
‘Lavish appreciation of almost a century of bicycle design ... includes enough lovingly-shot images to please any adherent of two-wheeled transport, as well as lovers of expertly honed craftsmanship’ – The Sunday Telegraph

Born in 1963, he studied architecture in Vienna, worked for Sepp Müller and Günther Domenig, and in the midst of it all decided on a “luxurious” way of learning: In 1994 he founded his design office Embacher/Wien, which strives for high quality architecture with an eye for fine detail.
