Readers’ Rides: Lucas from the Black Forest’s 1995 Rockrider 520 Restomod

We’re probably beating a dead horse over here by promoting the restoration of vintage mountain bikes into resto mod beauts. Even a run of the mill frame can become something extraordinary, with the right amount of time, parts, and money. Today, Lucas from Tune Germany shares just that, an überlight resto mod of a 1995 Rockrider 520 that weighs a scant 9,7KG with pedals! Let’s check it out below!

Say what you will about social media and its adverse effects on society but we’ve been served some stunning bikes through our Instagram Explore page over the years and as a result have connected with some genuinely amazing individuals.

Readers’ Rides: Michael’s Bender Hardtail 29er

While many of the Readers’ Rides we feature here are well-loved machines that exude character from miles of usage and years of iterations, we also receive reader submissions featuring fresh builds. Today, we’re taking a look at one of these from Michael in southern California who recently commissioned a hardtail from Bender Bicycle Co and had it built up by the team at Velo Hangar in Carlsbad. They even had the build process and completed bike documented by talented local photographer/director Embry Rucker. Let’s check it out below!

Readers’ Rides: Robbyansyah’s Singular Peregrine Mk III Gravel Bike

The Singular Cycles lineup was way ahead of the bike industry’s gravel craze. The UK-based company started making bikes with clearances for big tires, disc brakes, and off-road geometry before many brands, and the best part is it continues to push the envelope today. Singular’s forward thinking practices has brought it recognition world wide, which is how Robbyansyah found out about them in Indonesia, where he built up this Peregrine Mk III and has shared it with us today!

The Radavist’s Top Ten Readers’ Rides of 2022

We first began featuring Reader’s Rides back in 2011; since then these part-review, part-vignette reader submissions have become a beloved weekly fixture here on The Radavist. This year’s Top Ten Readers’ Rides feature both brand new builds and older frames full of stories that have been given new life. As always they are 100% audience-submitted and the builds highlighted here were chosen based on web traffic and engagement. We love receiving submissions each week so if you have been on the fence about submitting your ride, perhaps this list will motivate you to break out the camera and show off your rig. Read on for some choice submissions from 2022…
