Reader’s Rides: Fredrik’s Rychtarski Gravel Grinder

Photos by Fredrik Posse

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!

Reader’s Rides: Hollis’ IF Ti Planet Cross

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.

Reader’s Rides: Kareem Shehab’s Leader Pharoah FGFS

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!

Reader’s Rides: Keirnan’s Colnago Super Pista with C-Record

Photo by Keirnan Monaghan

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!
