Richard's New Bicycle Book Paperback – June 12, 1987. Books on everything from custom frames to offroad riding technique. But by far the most enjoyable to read has been this and several others by M. allantine. by. Richard Ballantine (Author). Many of the newer cycling books have a compulsive, competitive tone to them, as if the authors assumed the reader was bent on entering the Tour de France. In contrast, Dick Ballantine infuses the reader with his sense of joy and enthusiasm about the pure act of riding and the pure form of the diamond frame bicycle, a design that has accomodated over a hundred years worth of cyclists.

Richard’s Bicycle Book was one of them
Richard’s Bicycle Book was one of them. At one time, probably about 1977 or 1978, I would have bet that everybody that I then knew had a copy of Richard’s Bicycle Book somewhere. This was obviously true of the bike freaks - but was also true of all the civilians. There was also a disturbing touch of Alex Comfort’s ‘The Joy of Sex’ about the combination of the cover shot of a bearded Richard Ballantine and the style of the line drawings, and what’s with that Nordic sweater? But such imperfections serve to remind the faithful that only Allah is perfect.

3 Richard’s Bicycle Book. Richard Ballantine (1972; out of print). Part manual, part manifesto, full of humour, common sense and practical advice, this instantly became a bible to the new wave of folk who took to two wheels during the oil crisis in the early 70s. For the next two decades, it was the only mass market cycling book: it’s been reprinted numerous times, selling more than a million copies through various iterations. The manual part of the book is irrelevant now, because the bicycle has changed so much.
