A follow up to 2010’s Velo from art-book publishers Gestalten, the beautifully designed Velo – 2nd Gear reflects the current state of bicycle cultures around the world by looking at manufacturing, events, design, and art.

Bold color photography illuminating the many facets of global bicycle lifestyle brings this large format book to life. Sections include vintage Connoisseurs, urban Speedsters, innovative Performers, and much more. Velo – 2nd Gear exposes the great variety of human expression the bicycle can provoke, revealing a common thread throughout this diverse group of creators.

It’s an ideal compendium for the modern urbanite – whether cyclist, designer, trend-spotter, or all.
