Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I started out buying an old Zurich that looked like hell, it was my Guinee pig for learning how "modern" bikes were built, part quality, ride characteristics, etc. here are some others along the way...

my current is the '01 Zurich wi/6700 components, a good day rider. I have another '01 57cn Maillot Jaune frame in beautiful shape I'll rebuild w/7700 dura ace as orig spec'd soon as well. currently building up a '06 British green Croix de Fer loaner for a friend of mine, decent frame in 105 and dura ace /open pro wheelset, hopefully get him into riding so he can purchase his own bike down the line. these lemonds are easy bikes to built, and great sub 20lb er's.

An '05, True Temper Platinum OX tubing. I have a road wheelset for this as well, which I have ridden on Colorado's Triple Bypass and Copper Triangle road rides, among others. Love this bike.

My 2002 Alpe d'Huez

The "Before" photo. As it looked when I bought it off Craigslist:



The "After" photo. Replaced original 105 Triple with Ultegra 6800 and wheels with Mavic Kysrium SLs. Also replaced handlebar, tape, stem, seat, water bottle cages. Added Garmin Vector 3 PM pedals that I share with my other two road bikes. Rides beautifully.

Guess I can add in my latest (and 7th) Lemond. A 2006 Versailles I found locally this winter. Hodgepodge of mismatched parts that did not work right together. Upgraded to mostly Dura Ace/Ultegra with some light FSA SLK cranks with Wickwerks triple chainrings. It's also sporting new carbon fiber bars and my light November Nimbus wheels.

Just brought this one home today, 2003 Nevada City with 3x8 gearing and 10-15 years of garage grime. All I’ve done so far is swap out the bent front wheel for one I had hanging in the garage and remove a few outdated accessories the previous owner left on the bike. Weighs 19Lbs per the luggage scale as it sits.

Had an early 2000s LeMond titanium (yellow with red & black decals). Got it off Craigslist at a great price and flipped it. Made some $, but already regret it. However, I didn't like riding it so... Anyway, have a Zurich with carbon/853 on the indoor trainer now. Will post pics when I get to 10.

My '99 Tourmalet's latest incarnation as a fixie. I just got some Gravelking 32's, and was surprised they fit. I thought i was doing good just being able to run 28's on this.

first Lemond

I purchased this 2003 Lemond Poprad 2 weeks ago. I saw it on C'list and drove 86 miles to look at it, drove back with it in my car. New powder coating last year, upgraded from Sora to Ultegra 9 speed, Ultegra hubs with Open Pro rims, nearly new Gatorskin 32s. I have put close to 300 miles on it and I absolutely love the ride. I wanted an 853 Reynolds frame for quite awhile, and am very pleased with it, fairly light yet quite stiff.

Nice, is that TSX? What year? Was it made by Billato Bros? Looks to be about a 57 cm.
