As a longtime lover of custom bikes, PEZ fan Greg from Pennsylvania couldn't help but get another custom rig when it came time to get a new bike, a Kelly bedford Custom in a very sharp looking green paint job with Sram Red 22 and Mavic wheels.
Carbon and alloy can be made into a fine bike frame, but Bob Shaver's Tommasini Sintesi is a steel work of art. Obviously being Italian, the bike is built up with Campagnolo and a special Selle Italia/Ferrari saddle. A show bike, one of a kind.
Many of us dream of owning a team issue bike, well Jaime Larmer in Fort Worth has a Roxo Racing Time Alpe d'Huez built up with Shimano Dura-Ace components and wheels. A real race bred beauty.
For today's Readers' Rigs we head north to Canada where we find one of France's favorite machines, a LOOK 695 Light decked out in Dura-Ace Di2 and with Easton Carbon Clinchers on board. Not a new bike, but timeless in its looks, very rideable and could be right out of the box yesterday.
Today a 'Readers' Rig' with a difference, not so much a tech description, but a love note to a dear, dear friend. Ryan Hamilton in Wisconsin has fallen head-over-heels with his LeMond that he bought in 2007 and this is the story of his love affair in his own words.
