    A Readers' Rig could be anything from a modern classic to a vintage steely, a lightweight carbon or more - but why not all of the above? Canadian PEZ fan, Jim has 4 bikes that easily qualify as Readers' Rigs so we decided to feature all four - a Trek 5200, a Colnago C50, a 1988 Marinoni Special and a Guru Photon.

    LookKeoBlade650

    Product Review: A lighter, stronger pedal is what LOOK claimed to have created with the Look Kéo Blade 2 - the same pedal used by almost half the professional peloton this year. I quizzed the designer at Look France on the new features and then took them out for a tough 3 month test.

    Sectors of gravel road, dust and hills define the Strade Bianche, but it's so much more. The rolling green hills of Tuscany, the ancient towns of Gaiole and Siena, the passion of the tifosi ooze atmosphere and excitement. Ahead of Saturday's race let's take a look at some of our favorite images from years past.

    Dr. Stephen Cheung is our resident sports scientist and a man that we're all jealous of with his worldwide 'work' trips as he continues his scientific journey through life. Combining travel with transporting a bicycle made his choice of rig easy - a steel Ritchey Break-Away that's travelled with Steve on some amazing experiences. Here's their tale...

    The State of California is home to an impressive 1 out of every 8 Americans but an even more impressive - 2 out of 2 readers in today's Readers' Rigs! These two readers have two very different bikes but one very big thing in common - a pure love for their machine.

    For the very first time, the 2013 Tour de France took on the mythical Alpe d'Huez twice in one day by descending and then ascending the little known Col de Sarenne. In June, before the Dauphiné tested out the roads and much needed roadworks were completed, PEZ's man in France, Chris Selden cycled the route on a simply epic 150km and 4800m elevation day.

    ventoux650-dark

    Mt. Ventoux, it's a mythical place, steeped in Tour de France history and the site of many great battles over the years. Remember Armstrong vs Pantani in 2000? Or Eros Poli in 1994 when he lost 15 minutes on the mountain but still won the stage. For 2013 we added another battle to the history books as PEZ's own Chris Selden took on 30 other journos from around the world in climbing Mt. Ventoux.

    2013 has been a big year for retirements with many big and little names calling it a day at the end of the season.

Let's take a look back at some of the names to leave our great sport this year with some great images captured of their careers.

    Paris, France - the city of love, the Eiffel Tower, le Louvre and... traffic jams. Could Paris really be a destination for a PEZ 'Top Ride'? Well, yes as just 35km South-West of the capital is the gorgeous Vallée de Chevreuse where the cows, sheep and forest replace the hustle and bustle of the big city making it an ideal playground for cyclists.

    Like it or loathe it, indoor training is an ideal way to train through the colder months or just work on your specific fitness goals. Despite the fact that I am definitely in the 'loathe it' category the PEZ still thought that I would be the ideal man to review CycleOps' Fluid 2 trainer.

    Readers' Rigs has been one of our most popular columns of the year but it begged the question - what do the PEZ crew ride? Well our Literary Editor in Germany Leslie has enough bikes for almost the whole PEZ crew in fact that range from a 1962 track bike to a modern day Specialized. Here's a look at Leslie's collection which has a strong emphasis on Classic builds.

    Tubeless wheels are a standard in mountain biking but despite availability for several years now, tubeless tech for smoother road surfaces hasn't caught on as quickly, despite claimed weight and puncture resistance advantages.
