Bicycling Science, Second Edition

The second one variation of Bicycling Science contains new details on fresh achievements and experiments in human-powered transportation, from the "ultimate human-powered car" (UHPV) within which supine riders can in achieving speeds good over 60 mph, to human-powered plane, boats, and rail transportation. New chapters disguise the background of bicycle and humanpower know-how and technology, and the speed-power relationships of assorted modes and automobiles together with functionality predictions for the UHPV and the "commuter human-powered vehicle." The chapters on braking, guidance, friction, air drag, rider cooling, and transmissions and gearing have all been enlarged and up to date. James McCullagh, editor of Bicycling journal has written a Foreword for this version which additionally contains many new illustrations.
