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: 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: 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’ Rig: Roger’s Cipollini Bond 2

It's well known that we like Cipollini bikes here at PEZ. Like Mario, they have that Italian flair and style. Roger Paperno lives in Southern California, the perfect setting for his Cipollini Bond 2 built up with Shimano Dura-Ace and Campagnolo Bora wheels.
