Richard Ballantine (Author). 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.

If you are interested in a high-wheeler or a Star, I recommend obtaining a book such as Collecting and Restoring Antique Bicycles, by G. Donald Adams (Tab Books), with directions for riding. It is just as easy to 'come a cropper' with a modern high-wheel bike as with a veteran model.
