Composite Materials Bible: Composite Garage Series
The modern world we live in often requires components made from materials that are stronger and lighter than the more common materials of steel, aluminum, and wood. Today, everything from bicycle frames to aircraft components are made from composite materials such as Kevlar and Carbon Fiber. Unlike those other materials, composite components don't rust or rot, and they won't be dented by a minor impact. With the growing interest in these new high-tech materials, there are more and more individuals looking for help in building their own components from composites. While most of us assume that building from composites requires special skills and tooling found only in specialist shops and well-equipped industrial facilities, nothing could be further from the truth. Professor of Industrial Design, well-known author John Wanberg uses 176 pages and more than 400 images to explain and illustrate the techniques and tools that readers need to make their own components from composite materials. Whether it's a simple piece that requires no mold or a more elaborate fabrication project that requires both a mold and vacuum bagging, all the necessary how-to information is contained in this new book from Wolfgang Publications. This new book from John Wanberg combines materials from four previous books plus adds a wealth of new material on the latest trends and techniques in the world of high-tech composite materials. All of the projects and techniques included in this 176-page book are aimed at individuals and small shops.

Crash Kings Motocross
Every Motocross rider falls off. It's just a question of how often which separates the men from the boys! Even world champions are not exempt as we experience 300 crashes, smashes and wipeouts from the spectacular to the slightly sad. It's not surprising there's a lot of coming together when 50 bikes head off for the same 10 metres of track at the first corner! Watch the mayhem on the beach as the riders wilt under the energy-sapping conditions, but at least there's a soft landing, unlike those bumpy, stony motocross circuits where we see bruising, bone-crunching and sometimes very funny action. There's some heart-stopping moments, too as riders bale out in mid-air hoping for a landing which doesn't damage the bike. Nobody gets seriously hurt. Still, better not let your Mum see this one!
