Properly Loving Your Cycling Machine

There's a serious gap in the bike manual market. Most books are either very technical and cater to a fairly narrow audience of experienced bike mechanics, or address basic steps for more casual users but are ugly. 

Properly Loving Your Cycling Machine is a prototype for a book about bike maintenance targeted at casual riders that makes taking care of bikes easy and fun. The bike is broken down into sections, handling each set of components separately.  

I created the concept, illustrations, writing, layout, binding technique and produced this as a study in technical illustration, information design, and print production.
