Carbon and alloy can be made into a fine bike frame, but Bob Shaver's Tommasini Sintesi is a steel work of art. Obviously being Italian, the bike is built up with Campagnolo and a special Selle Italia/Ferrari saddle. A show bike, one of a kind.

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.

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.
