Aaron Dykstra of Six-Eleven Bicycles in Roanoke, Virginia, got his first job at a small local bike shop when he was fifteen and he spent the majority of his teen years riding and racing bikes.

This book gives kids a detailed peek into Aaron's process making steel bike frames with his own hands. Charts, infographics, and bold photographs make this a perfect book for anyone who's curious about how a bicycle is made.
