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.
It doesn't come more varied than this: Ready to race with Limar Air Pro helmets, Primal Omni jersey and shorts, win a classic LOOK KG 396 frame, Lezyne new CNC Tubeless Drive, free Wahoo TICKR with The Sufferfest annual subscription, Sidi new Sixty Ltd.
Today's Readers' Rig is a Canadian custom classic - A Marinoni made with Colombus SLX steel tubes in Quebec. Keith's pride and joy is finished in Eddy Merckx Molteni colours, but has an individuality of its own. A real classic.
A mixed bag of goods in this weeks Gear Break: A free book from Officina Battaglin, new gravel bike from Look and wheels from Corima, Gold Sidi shoes now available, Henri Lloyd masks back in stock and ABUS releases the uGrip Bordo Big folding lock.
We've had a few nice Litespeed bikes featured here in Readers' Rigs over the years but today's reader John takes the prize as the oldest Litespeed rig featured being a 'Team Issue' bike from back in 2000 that he's lovingly cared for and ridden for the last 20 years.
