The OLD Paterek Manual in PDF format

The Paterek Manual was first written in the early 1980's. At the time, it was (and still is) considered the premier book on bicycle framebuilding. Recently, a Russian web site has been allowing visitors to download illegal PDF copies of that book. I do not approve of this form of piracy and have not given my permission for those downloads. I do not endorse visiting that web site or downloading the old version of the Paterek Manual from them. In an effort to make his illegal downloads ineffective, I have decided to provide that download at my web site. Please keep in mind, this is a 23 year old version of my book and much of the information in it is outdated now. However, I would much rather have you visiting my web site instead of the web site of a pirate. Just click on the link below to download your copy.
