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: Shane’s Cinelli Zydeco

This weeks Readers' Rig comes all the way from Northern Colorado Rockies and is multi use Cinelli bike all the way from Italy, and yes, it's made with Columbus aluminum tubes. Shane wanted a workhorse he could throw around that would punch above its weight. It's certainly a beauty.

Retro Readers’ Rigs: Cinelli 1963 Supercorsa

After reading about a classic bike restoration here on Pez, reader Paul from Oregon couldn't help but perform a resto of his own. His weapon of choice is this 1963 Cinelli Supercorsa that thanks to some fine restoration looks just as fine as the day it was sold over half a century ago.
