As a longtime lover of custom bikes, PEZ fan Greg from Pennsylvania couldn't help but get another custom rig when it came time to get a new bike, a Kelly bedford Custom in a very sharp looking green paint job with Sram Red 22 and Mavic wheels.
VIDEO: Here's the first in my series of building up this custom Battaglin POWER+ disc brake steel road frame set. In this video I unveil - and unbox the fresh new frame from storied Italian builder (and 1981 Vuelta a España & Giro d'Italia winner) Giovanni Battaglin.
For today's Readers' Rigs we head north to Canada where we find one of France's favorite machines, a LOOK 695 Light decked out in Dura-Ace Di2 and with Easton Carbon Clinchers on board. Not a new bike, but timeless in its looks and very rideable. Four years old but could be right out of the box yesterday.
The Cipollini MCM road bike offers all the flash & panache you'd want from a brand that's all about performance, but with a slightly more forgiving frame design, and a custom tube-to-tube carbon construction option for this Italian original. Here's my long term review...
Today's Readers' Rigs is something different - Adam from California is in love with his rig - that's nothing new, but he hasn't just sent us pics and a story about his pimped out racing bike. No, instead he's sent us a story about his vanity styled training bike, an all black stealth Specialized Allez E5.
This Trek is a special bike for many reasons: it has suspension, it has ridden Paris-Roubaix, it's an ex-team bike and it holds great memories of a wonderful man who is no longer with us. Martin Clark put the bike together in memory of his friend and took it back to Roubaix.
Today's Readers' Rig is a look at one of the most innovative bike designs in the modern peloton, the LOOK 795. One man who has fallen completely for its unique style is PEZ fan, Peter from California and today he shows us his 795 decked out with Dura Ace Di2, ENVE wheels and more.
England’s Enigma Bicycles offered a nice Canvas in their Echelon Ti frame. Technical Editor Charles Manantan took that up a few notches sending Cyclo-Retro a full Campagnolo group for refinishing and engraving and then selecting custom paint to match the custom leather saddle re-wrap and Bar Tape.
