Today's Readers' Rig is special piece of titanium work by Litespeed. Loren in California is a very lucky guy to have this bike and a wife who bought it for him as an anniversary present. Shimano Dura-Ace and C50 wheels make this a top steed to be proud of.
Today's readers' Rig is Adnan Kadir's pride and joy, and you can see why. A fine piece of carbon frame work by French manufacturer, Cyfac, draped with Campagnolo Record 12 speed components, with extras by Time, Selle Italia, Zipp, Schwalbe and Verve. This bike doesn't just ride around at home in Portland, but is well traveled, taking in Californian, European and Asian roads.
It's a few years since his last appearance in Readers' Rigs, but PEZ fan Joey from San Fransisco has another very different rig - a very smartly presented black Specialized E5 Smartweld. Quite a difference from his loud and proud pink ride previously featured on PEZ.
Is it a road bike? cross bike? or a gravel bike? Who cares, it's a fun bike! Our returning Readers' Rigs alumni Joey from San Francisco is back again in Readers' Rigs with yet another bike that has some struggling to define it but that can't keep the smile off of Joey's face everytime he rides it.
Another mixed bag of gear: Life Time and Rudy Project customized helmet design tested by Pez, Endura women’s Pro SL EGM bibshort, Zipp 353 NSW tubeless disc brake wheelset, Reddiyo dynamic training platform, MAAP x Suplest EDGE+ Road Pro shoes and Mips launches redesigned brand website.
More great and new kit: Tubolito light weight tubes, La Passione DUO Collection: Plenty of cool combinations for a bright look, Continental rolls out new category of tire with the Ruban and eRuban Plus, Sidi Sixty Multicolor, the new LDT inspired by the nineties, Zipp hookless technology video and happy 100th birthday Shimano.
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.
