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 plus years.
Normally associated with Ferrari, today's Readers' Rig is instead a Lamborghini styled Colnago C50 modified by its owner for his ultimate ride. A highly original custom paint job, Campagnolo record gearing, Zipp wheels and a light weight are just some of the features of this unique ride.
More new gear in the cycling market place: Castelli Perfetto ROS Convertible Jacket, Route Werks Launches 'The Handlebar Bag', Castelli with Strava challenges you to cycle the Paris-Roubaix distance, SCOTT: The All-New Plasma 6 tri bike, MET Mobilite Mips helmets, Rapha GORE-TEX Classic Winter Jacket and the new Mavic.
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.
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.
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.
