The Dancing Chain by Frank Berto

The story of the modern bicycle and the gadget that makes it tick: the derailleur gearing system used on almost all quality racing and off-road bicycles today. Most other books on the history of the bicycle go to great lengths explaining the development from hobby horse to bone shaker to high wheeler, and suddenly stop once the safety bicycle is introduced towards the end of the 19th century. Instead, this is the story of the last 100 years - the history of the bicycle in the 20th century.
