Rapha Bike Collection XS
Part of the limited edition collection of Rapha bikes, this bicycle deserves the praise it’s received. The only two-time winner of Bicycling Magazine's coveted ‘Best Dream Road Bicycle’, Bill Strickland continued the magazine’s love affair with his full-page ‘Ode to My IF’ in another issue. Bill, Guy Andrews, John Bradley and Simon Richardson each rode an XS in their attempt to repeat the ‘Crazy Bet’ in 2008, when they rode le Alpe and the Tourmalet in successive days. This bicycle must be considered one of the best ever constructed for the road rider looking to race a sportive.
