What's Cool In Road Cycling
Readers’ Rigs

Readers’ Rigs: Favaloro Puma XLight

As a lover of high end bikes, our reader Andy from Connecticut was always going to get a special bike when he went bike shopping but instead of just another off the shelf option he instead went all out with a sweet custom Favaloro Puma XLIGHT from Italy decked out with full Campag Super Record of course. Bellissimo!

Readers’ Rigs: Field Disc Road

To celebrate his fiftieth birthday, Richard from Sheffield in the U.K treated himself to a beautiful custom bike from the guys at Field Cycles that he tried to build up with as many local components as possible all the while keeping the bike modern, classy and sporty. Objective achieved I'd say.

Readers’ Rigs: A Shimano Museum Stunner!

Today we look at an iconic Readers' Rig. A custom steel bike, based on a Shimano promotional poster from the '80s. With the frame copied perfectly, the owner himself then hit the spraybooth to paint his creation with the result being such a cool bike that Shimano themselves bought it and now have it displayed in their bike museum in Japan!

Readers’ Rigs: Dave’s Ti Merlin Works

They say once you ride titanium you'll be hooked for life and that certainly seems the case with today's reader Dave from Portland. His Merlin Works is the third titanium bike he's owned - will it be his forever bike?

Readers’ Rig: Peter’s Kirk Precision

Peter Gowan has what has become quite a collectors item, a Kirk Precision frame made of magnesium. At the end of the 80s magnesium was the future... but then carbon came along. Peter has one of the few Kirk bikes still in existence, a fine example of the art.
