Not just an upgrade, the award-winning CYCLEPEDIA just got bigger, better and much more fun. Previously App of the Week and New and Noteworthy it now has more bikes, more movies and is packed with much more information. This new CYCLEPEDIA offers an expanded tour round many more of Michael Embacher’s unique personal collection of two-wheeled rarities. As before every bicycle is beautifully displayed via the app’s 360º spins, but now the zoom magnifications are in even higher resolution allowing you to compare and appreciate each machine’s fine detail, innovation and design more closely than ever. The new CYCLEPEDIA also brings you Sir Paul Smith’s personal collection of rare cycling Jerseys, plus unique movie clips in which Sir Paul entertainingly explains his lifelong passion for bicycles. And if you ever wondered how a derailleur worked, look no further. A swipe of the finger reveals all. So whether you are a Lycra-clad fanatic or just interested in the evolution of cycling and bicycle design this is an app to treasure even more than the celebrated original. Sit back, enjoy, and let your fingers do the pedaling.
