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

Show your LeMond!!!

Thanks!!

It's from it's past life as a neutral team support bike. They were selling off their 2005 bikes last Fall. Team was mainly sponsored by Campagnolo, with team cars by Volvo. It's got all Campy stuff on it unlike most factory Lemond bikes, plus a custom paint/decal job.

Tons smoother than my old Cannondale.

It's an unmarked model but it's the same as a Maillot Jaune, Zurich, BA, or Versailles. They're all the same frame & materials, just different paint jobs & components. First bike I've ever owned w/ Campy stuff on it, I've always had Shimano. Shifting takes a little getting used to, but now I really like it.

af2nr,

Sorry for the double-reply...

After looking at the Lemond site it looks like it's most similar to the BA, only with full Centaur, a little higher level Bontrager bars, stem & post, and the Zonda wheels. I felt like it was a good setup for the money, and only had about 100 miles on it. Everything was like brand new, as it lived most of its life either in a motel room or on a roof rack. I got it for $1500, which seemed like a good deal to me.

That's why I was asking, cause my BA came with Campy and I think it and the Sarthe were the only two that did last year. So it looks like you got the Sarthe colors and BA frame. Nice bike and price!!!

Has anyone with a late model lemond been able to fit fenders? The planetbike Freddy Fenders hardcore do not fit beneath the tiny fork. Is the SKS race blade the only option?

Here's part of the last photo shoot the bike allowed.

Not sure any fenders will fit through the front brake and fork, or the rear brake. I use Planent Bike SpeedEZ... (not sure on exact model) - very similar to the RaceBlade. They work well. I've trimmed them a bit to fit without rattling on the brakes.

Just curious about bike weight on the steel/carbon Lemond bikes. Mine weighs in at a fraction under 19#, is that pretty much where everyone else is hitting?

Thanks,

I've never had mine weighed but using the bathroom scale method it comes in at around 19 lbs.

Is it kind of creepy that while I am at work, I check out this thread just to stare at my LeMond and think about riding her?



*edit*
That just doesn't not sound right!

I'm guessing you feel the same way looking at your wife's/gf's picture?

Just bring it to work with you. I have a mountain bike leaning against the side of my desk most days. I try to get out on my lunch break & ride a nearby greenway when I can. It's only 45 minutes or so of riding & screwing around, but is sure makes the day go better! I get some weird looks from vendors' rep's that call on me, but after a few minutes they end up talking about that they need to bet a bike or dig their old one out.

I was in the process of installing my Astrale 8 and decided to take pictures for some reason. That little thing was a pain in the butt to install, those instructions were horrible. I just now figured out how to change the readings from km/h to mph, it felt like a major accomplishment!

My butt has finally worn into my saddle, I am no longer sore for days after riding!

BTW: Do you think putting red bar tape on my bike would look stupid?
