About this product
- DescriptionAmerica may be a nation obsessed with automobiles, but today the bicycle is giving the car a run for its money. And while New York is just one of many cities that is implementing new and exciting bike-friendly policies, the local cyclist population stands out as one of the most diverse, inventive, and stylish in the world. New York Bike Style celebrates this diversity with full-page photographs of riders and their bikes. Photographer Sam Polcer has combed New York's five boroughs looking for subjects who reflect the myriad styles and demographics of the city's cyclists--from Puerto Rican Schwinn aficionados celebrating their heritage with vintage bikes to fixed gear freaks who eat, sleep, and breathe drop handlebars; BMX kids honing their bar-spins at skateparks to fashionistas floating down leaf-strewn streets in capes and dresses. Each page is captioned with the subject's name, what kind of bike they ride, where the photo was taken, and where they're headed. The book also features close-up shots of gear: wheels, seats, handlebars, baskets, pedals, and panniers as well as a startlingly stylish array of bike fashion. Whether they're pedaling to work or play, racing with a club, or out for a lazy ride, New York Bike Style pays photographic tribute a city in love with biking in all its forms. With contributions from David Byrne and Casey Neistat.
