What's Cool In Road Cycling

Readers’ Rigs: Lotus Supreme 1985

Today's Readers' Rigs machine is possibly a record breaker for this column. No it's not the fastest, not the prettiest and certainly not the lightest machine we've had featured but this Lotus Supreme is quite possibly the longest owned rig…

Readers’ Rigs: Litespeed Team Issue 2000

We've had a few nice Litespeed bikes featured here in Readers' Rigs over the years but today's reader John takes the prize as the oldest Litespeed rig featured being a 'Team Issue' bike from back in 2000 that he's lovingly cared for and…

Readers’ Rigs: Serotta CSI

Today's Readers' Rigs is no latest generation show pony carbon wonderbike, instead it's a Real Steel semi-custom from the folks at Serrotta that has proven a worthy Rig for its owner Brock who has owned his bike for 20 years now...

Readers’ Rigs: Falco Custom Ti

Today's Readers' Rig is a totally custom rear suspension Calfee MantaFly 101 owned by PEZ fan Andrew. Individual colors, Shimano DuraAce Di2, a selection of nice wheels to choose from and plenty of custom touches means Andrew and his Calfee…

We've seen a lot of custom bikes here at Readers' Rigs but not too many that have such a history behind them as David from Oklahoma City's Hans Schneider custom. Through 21 years of ownership this bike has been through a couple of different…

Readers’ Rigs: Litespeed T1SL

I don't think today's reader Mitch could disagree with me describing him as somewhat of a Litespeed tragic as his past stable of bikes have included a number of Litespeed steeds. After a chance meeting with the firm's Head Designer and…

Readers’ Rigs: Eddy Merckx EMX-3

This submission is a very sharp looking Eddy Merckx EMX-3 that's a bike with Belgian origins but an Italian heart and is owned by an Asian from Mexico - it doesn't get much more international than that. A fine mix of traditional Campagnolo…
