VIDEO: There's not better time for small tools than Holiday Season - they make poerfect stocking stuffers, as well as fitting into a jersey pocket.

I’m sure PEZ readers around the world are all familiar with Greg LeMond’s epic ride on the Champs-Élysées in Paris on July 23, 1989 to snatch victory from Laurent Fignon and win the Tour de France by a mere 8 seconds. I can still remember watching it on TV. And I still have on VHS (as well as functioning VHS tape recorder!) The 1989 Tour de France: Greg LeMond’s Incredible Comeback!

Obviously the chat didn't end there; predictions were made for the coming year and the ASO/UCI battle got a good airing.

We've had everything from custom carbon, aero wonder superbikes and even museum stunners featured in Readers' Rigs but we've never had a bull horned, custom steel bike until today. Kevin from Lancanshire's unique steel ride certainly qualifies for Readers' Rigs though as he and his machine have a very cool story behind their time together that includes over 25 years of ownership of ups and downs and thousands upon thousands of miles.

Ed's Rant: The winter nights are drawing in and Ed Hood has been ruminating over the Grand Tours - Where are they going wrong and what can be changed? Ed has a long list of short-comings and improvements. Constructive criticism or the rants of a madman?

Toolbox: I have said it before and I will say it again: I am fifty, and I still wanna go fast! Staying strong and riding the way you want to ride once you hit the half-century point requires some changes to the way you plan and train compared to when you were younger.

When we first talked in 2003, Paul Sherwen immediately stood out from the crowd by not only accepting my request for an interview -  but actually phoning me back from his home in Uganda to continue the interview.  This one's worth another read, and as I got to know him over the years and several more interviews, his warm and chatty personality never changed, and set him in a class of ...pure class.
