Eddy Merckx; the best cyclist ever. Also the bike frames that carry his name have a fine race winning pedigree. Jacob, in Utah, has a disk EM525 Merckx built up with Sram, FFWD, Speedplay and San Marco. A Belgian Beauty.
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.
Not before time; we have an e-bike Readers' Rig. John in South Carolina has sent us photos of his Specialized Creo SL Expert... It has the look, it has the power and for a big bike it's not that heavy. Is this the future for many of us that want to stay active, what do you think?
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.
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.
