    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.

    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.

    Readers' Rigs is a great look at what PEZ fans are riding but what about the PEZ himself - what does he ride? Well between bike tests, product trials and lends from friends it changes constantly but back in 2006 he built up a bike of his own that remains to this day one of his favorite rides.

    Today's Readers' Rigs are a mixed pair from opposite sides of the world and completely different, but special, machines. First up: a completely unique Baum from Down Under that's custom in every way, and secondly a nice and light Scott climber from the States. It's Readers' Rigs time!

    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.

    Today we look at two rigs from two French readers at the opposite end of the peloton. First up is a Cervélo that at sub 6kgs is well under the UCI limit, and then a KTM from Bretagne-Séché pro Clément Koretzky which sits just above the UCI limit at 6.9kg. Two very different bikes for two very different riders but both machines are the pride and joys of their owners - it's Readers' Rigs time!

    We've featured some pretty special machines in Readers Rigs over the last year but today's machine is something completely different again. It's a custom built racing tandem owned by Peter Spencer a Cat 1 racer in Australia and his blind stoker Zachariah Clarkson.

    The Northern Hemisphere winter is ever so slowly starting to lift, so what better time to have a closer look at two PEZ fans' machines that have been hibernating inside from the cold; a Specialized from New York and a Bianchi from Wisconsin. It's Readers' Rigs time!

    A Reader's Rig could be a $500 cheapo, a vintage classic, a $15,000 superbike or just a highly personalized bike designed just for their owner. It's this last category which is catered for today with a custom Parlee that has a simply awesome paintjob and a Cannondale with some serious owner modifications that make it really stand out from the crowd. It's Readers' Rigs time!

    In the latest edition of our column about real fans with real bikes, Readers' Rigs has travelled down under, tracking down two PEZ fans from different parts of the lucky country with two very different rides. A full carbon Colnago and an aluminium Duratec - it's Readers' Rigs time!

    It's time for some bike voyeurism now as we take a look at two Pez Fans' machines! Today's installment of Readers' Rigs brings us a highly original Fondriest with an amazing 4 speed block and a not so standard Specialized from an old Pez friend.

    Let's forget about the whole USADA saga for a moment and concentrate on what our sport is all about, beautiful bikes and the fun we have on them. With that in mind, it's time for the 2nd installment in our new column of Readers' Rigs!

    So what's a reader's rig? Well it could be anything from a $500 special to a $15,000 dream machine - it's not the price of the bike that's important but the story behind the bike. Let's face it who hasn't participated in a bit of voyeurism in your local group ride? How often in life can you ogle another man or woman's loved ones, touch them and even ride them if you're lucky? So it was with this voyeuristic attitude that the new Readers' Rigs column was born.
