What's Cool In Road Cycling
Readers’ Rigs

Readers’ Rigs: Seven Axiom SL

We love it when Readers' Rigs alumni come back to the column years after their first appearance on Pez so when David from New York got in contact it was easy to say 'yes' to another Readers' Rigs feature with him - especially when he sent us in some pics of his ride, a sweet, custom made titanium Seven Axiom SL fitted out with Sram etap.

Readers’ Rig: Brian’s Time VXRs – Carbon Beauty

Time was first made famous by their clip-less pedals, but where the French company's artistry comes into its own, is their carbon frame construction. Brian in Folsom has a perfect example, his Time VXRs has that naked carbon weave with the bonded lug and tube system. Simply beautiful.

Readers’ Rig: Scott’s 1989 De Rosa SLX

The late 80s was a time of Classic bikes and De Rosa was making some of the nicest examples of steel artistry. De Rosa frames were something special, Eddy Merckx rode them and Ugo De Rosa gave the Belgian star some lessons on the welding torch. Scott in Washington owns a fine example of De Rosa's work in Columbus SLX... Enjoy.

Readers’ Rigs: Pinarello Prince

Today's Readers' Rig is an undeniably flashy ride with its bold Spanish Champion's paint scheme and Corima Carbon wheels this Pinarello Prince stands out on the roads of Ireland as its owner races it hard in the local Master's races.

Readers’ Rigs: Gios Torino Perfection!

Carbon is all very nice, but the modern materials can't come close to the class and style of Marco's 1973 Gios Torino. The acquisition was inspired by Roger De Vlaeminck, although Marco's Gios is not on the Flemish cobbles, but under the California sun.

Readers’ Rigs: Serrotta 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: Litespeed Team Issue 2000

We've had a few nice Litespeed bikes here in Readers' Rigs over the years, but today's reader, John, takes the prize with the oldest Litespeed featured rig from back in 2000. He has lovingly cared and ridden it for the last 20 years.

Readers’ Rigs: John’s Specialized Creo SL Expert

Not before time; we have an e-bike Readers' Rig. John in South Carolina has sent us photos of his Specialized Creo SL Expert... It has the look, it has the power and for a big bike it's not that heavy. Is this the future for many of us that want to stay active, what do you think?
