Readers’ Rigs: Custom Rigs!

A Reader's Rig could be a $500 cheapo, a vintage classic, a $15,000 superbike or just a highly personalized bike designed just for their owner. It's this last category which is catered for today with a custom Parlee that has a simply awesome paintjob and a Cannondale with some serious owner modifications that make it really stand out from the crowd. It's Readers' Rigs time!

PEZ Introduces: Readers’ Rigs!

So what's a reader's rig? Well it could be anything from a $500 special to a $15,000 dream machine - it's not the price of the bike that's important but the story behind the bike. Let's face it who hasn't participated in a bit of voyeurism in your local group ride? How often in life can you ogle another man or woman's loved ones, touch them and even ride them if you're lucky? So it was with this voyeuristic attitude that the new Readers' Rigs column was born.
