The Cyclepedia book has finally also made it to the iPad with a beautiful interactive application. Not only does the app give a history of bikes, but it features some great background information, interviews with bike enthusiasts, videos and more.

“A fully interactive collection of 100 bicycles that changed cycling history – and not always for the better! From the suitcase-sized Skoot to the Olympic Gold medal-winning Lotus Sport 110, every bicycle is displayed in stunning clarity and technical detail. 360º spins and 20 times magnification of each component allows you to compare and appreciate all the elements of this rich celebration of cycling culture, innovation and design.

Selected from Michael Embacher’s unique collection of over two hundred bicycles, CYCLEPEDIA recounts each one’s fascinating story. It also includes video clips, original brochures, contemporary advertising, engineering drawings, rare stills and links to manufacturers’ sites.

Whether you are a Lycra-clad fanatic or just interested in the evolution of cycling and bicycle design, this is an app to treasure.”
