Last Chance to Pre-Order Our New Book (Updated)

Update 11/3/2020: The cut-off for the 10% pre-order discount and consolidated shipping for international readers is past, but you can still pre-order the book and be among the first to rear it. Click here to reserve your copy.

Producing a new book is always exciting. First there are the proofs, where we can see for the first time what the book really will look like. Then the pages come off the press, and we get to approve those. Finally, the case is finished. That’s where we are right now with our latest book, The All-Road Bike Revolution. After binding, the books will be shipped to Seattle next week. We should have them in two weeks.

It’s fun to see Miyoshi’s iconic drawings come to life. It’s equally exciting to see all the research that’s changed how we ride our bikes, finally in one place and in an easy-to-digest format.

Today and tomorrow is your last chance to reserve your copy at our 10% pre-order discount – which also guarantees that you’ll be among the first to get your copy. For international customers, this also means consolidated shipping at a much-reduced rate.

Now’s the time to get in the aero tuck and reserve your copy.

For more information about the book, check our previous journal entry.

    Does the book also cover normal road bikes, e.g. frames using 700Cx32 tires, used on pavement??

      Of course! We’re talking about the science that underlies all bikes. Things like tire resistance, aerodynamics, frame stiffness, etc. apply to all bikes, regardless of tire size.

      The fact that 32 mm tires now are considered ‘road bike tires’ shows you how far the influence of the ‘All-Road Bike Revolution’ has gone! When we started researching tires, the first ‘gravel grinders’ were running 28 mm tires, and 32 mm was so wide that even touring bikes rarely adopted them.

    Jan, very excited about the book. Just got a new custom frame built based on everything I’ve learned in BQ over the years. My new frame is all ready to go, except it’s waiting on it’s Rene Herse crank – any idea when the 46/30 chainring combo for 9-12 speed might be back in stock?

      Excited about your new bike! We’ve had some issues with inbuilt stresses in the aluminum raw material, which made the latest batch have more runout than is acceptable by our standards. So we’re remaking the rings, but that takes time (getting new material, machining, riveting pins, polishing, anodizing, etc.) They should be ready soon.
