It's good to see a sensible bike for the winter and wet days with mudguards, but also one that looks right stripped down for the sun. Adnan in Portland has a custom Drummond Columbus tubed frame built up with Campagnolo kit. A real beauty.
There are many carbon gravel bikes out there on the trails, but we've not seen so many in titanium, and what a better example than a frame made by Litespeed. Mitch in Winston-Salem has an Litespeed Ultimate equipped with SRAM, Hunt, fizik and TRP.
Aerobikes have been the top of many people's shopping lists, and the Canyon AEROAD is high on the 'must haves' of the cycling world. Mickel Kobeck, in Chattanooga, owns one of the first to grace the North American shores... a feast for the eyes.
Something a bit different this week: A full on time trial machine. We take a close look at British and World Transplant Championship winner Graham Strugnell’s Dolan Scala TT machine. Nothing off the peg here - Equipment selected for aero efficiency and functionality. It's fast and it looks good too!
We love it when Readers' Rigs alumni come back to the column years after their first appearance on Pez so when David from New York got in contact it was easy to say 'yes' to another Readers' Rigs feature with him - especially when he sent us in some pics of his ride, a sweet, custom made titanium Seven Axiom SL fitted out with Sram etap.
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.
