Engineer Jobst Brandt has long been a consultant to the bicycle industry and is rightly lauded for his work on Avocet's line of road tires.
The Bicycle Wheel is the 3rd Edition of Brandt's series.
In the series, Brandt uses engineering data to make an argument for the what he considers the best materials and construction methods for bicycle wheels.
This work is dense in places, but for any avid bicycle rider it will be a pleasure to read.
For those who want to build their own wheels, there are detailed instructions.
An excellent work.
