We built our first all-road bike for ourselves: We wanted to ride with the speed of a road bike on gravel roads. We then quickly learned that many other cyclists are looking for exactly the same thing. Jan Heine's book shows you how to get the most fun out of your bike.

This knowledge about cycling, which has been proven by our own research and is not just a gray theory, but has been tested on country roads and gravel roads, will help all bike enthusiasts and give them valuable decision-making aids and aha moments. Whether you're new to cycling or you're building your twentieth bike, this book has you covered.

With all the different goals and interests cyclists have, it's difficult to put into words the joy of cycling, and perhaps even more difficult to offer advice on technique. This book does both with understandable answers to so many questions. The idea is clear: your bike should be comfortable, fast and go with you wherever your adventures take you. Because the more fun you have cycling, the more you will ride your bike.
