Description
About The Book

While telling the fascinating story of the evolution of the bicycle from its beginning as a crude beam on wheels to its present form of a highly efficient transportation and leisure vehicle, an attempt is made to show how the engineering designs evolved from humble beginnings. This process of evolution of design occurs sometimes slowly and at other times in leaps and bounds, each stage leading to an improved product.

The book utilizes a familiar machine to introduce some essential principles of engineering mechanisms: treadles, cranks, velocity ratio, transmission, gearing, antifriction bearings, triangulation of structures etc. It also attempts to give a glimpse of the science of bicycling through a discussion of force and power, wind resistance, braking and stability. As an additional feature, some interesting internet sites connected with the history and science of bicycling are listed for the enthusiasts.

I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
Jigme, Canada
