Today a 'Readers' Rig' with a difference, not so much a tech description, but a love note to a dear, dear friend. Ryan Hamilton in Wisconsin has fallen head-over-heels with his LeMond that he bought in 2007 and this is the story of his love affair in his own words.
Today's Readers' Rig is a bike that may be a few years old now but still gets many dreaming about it - a 2009 Eddy Merckx AXM. Decked out in full Campagnolo Record with Bora wheels to complement this classic European machine - but it comes to us from a reader in Hong Kong.
We love a repeat customer here on Readers' Rigs and today it's Nick from California who last featured here with a fairly standard Cannondale but today he shows us his new rig, a full custom build from Franco Latigo decked out with Campagnolo gears and Bora One wheels.
We've had everything from custom carbon, aero wonder superbikes and even museum stunners in Readers' Rigs but we've never had a bull horned, custom steel bike. Kevin's unique steel ride certainly qualifies for Readers' Rigs though as he and his machine have a very cool story that includes 30 years of ownership.
