It’s not everyday that PiNP does a Reader’s Rides post. In fact, it’s been months! When I received this email from Fredrik however, I had to share. The world of the fat tire road bike has expanded rapidly with the growing popularity of ‘gravel grinder’ rides. While I’ll say that cross bikes are the best all-rounders, some people want to tune their ride with a slightly different characteristics.
That’s what Fredrik achieved with his his new ride. Check out more below!

The last Cinelli I featured in a Reader’s Rides post was all about low-visibility. As a striking contrast, Ainis Permins‘ Vigorelli is about as as far from low-vis as you can get. This one’s bright but pretty damn sharp! See more below.
It’s not often I get a Reader’s Rides email with a bike like this attached. Jerry’s new Moots Vamoots CR is drop dead gorgeous but it’s very easy to take shit photos of a great bike. The colors, tones and composition of these photos are top notch. Jerry ordered the frame from Montano Velo and went with Campagnolo Record for the group. Stunning!

As previously-stated, everyone’s ready to get their ‘cross on this season. It’s pretty common for me to receive a large number of cross bikes in lieu of track bikes come this time of the year but what’s uncommon is a gem like this. Hollis lives in Barcelona and races for IF’s Grassroots team. Here’s his laced out IF Ti Planet Cross.

Since I don’t really do any kind of bike-check posts, the only label I could think that would be appropriate for this is Reader’s Rides. Plus it mixes it up from the normal track bike we see in that tag. Kareem’s been in the FGFS scene for as long as just about anyone. His recent relocation from Atlanta to Seattle, landed him in the middle of a great group of people, including Jake Ricker. Check out more photos of Kareem’s Leader Pharoah below, all courtesy of Jake and his Contax!

Although this bike is still a work in progress, I told Keirnan that I still wanted to post it. Rides like this are teetering on the verge of perfection and it’s not every day that you see such a stunning bicycle, built up with Campagnolo Corsa Record Pista. Wow.
On a side note, thanks for all the readers who are contributing this week. I’ve seen some gorgeous bikes!

Australia has its share of frame builders and the younger generation of riders have started to seek out and support these artisans. One of which is Kumo Cycles. Andy’s new steed is a Columbus Life track frame. Laced with a mix of vintage and new components, this will be a joy to ride. Head over to Fame and Spear for more photos.
I always thought the FTC x Nabiis Alchemy track frames looked good and Fer’s current setup looks very nice. Something about a Zen Ring with a Vento always looks good. Check out more of this beast at PedalRoom!
Man, the user-submitted content is getting damn good these days. Here’s Byskov’s 1992 Cannondale track bike. I’m digging the black components.
