Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

You're not too old for a bike like that if you like the colors, it just makes your personality one of the colorful people. So if it's still available and you're still drooling over it, buy it and live it up while riding with a smile on your face, I bet you'll compliments on it as well.

The interesting thing about that bike is that it won't be everyone's cup of tea, so it may not sell fast which means you have more room to negotiate a price on it if the seller is motivated to move it out of his house sooner rather than much later. I would offer him 20% less than his asking price and see what he does with the offer, if he's motivated you'll find out real quick with his counteroffer, then I would try to settle for a price in between his counteroffer and your initial 20% off offer.

It also has a (race number?) tab on the underside of the top tube.

That is a really sick bike. Also - not many Ti Lemonds around, so definitely a bit of a collector bike.

Planet X Tempest V3. I found the bike on Ebay and picked it up locally. The previous owner did maybe 3000 miles on it and had changed the seat post to a carbon 3T Zero25. I added a Prologo saddle I had laying around and some light cheap platform pedals. The previous owner had changed the tires to 650B Panaracer Pari-Moto 38mm and while these are great tires, they were showing signs they would need to be replaced after a couple hundred miles, so I changed them to 650B Panaracer GravelKing 42mm, which are also basically slick tires. Other than the tires the only thing that needed attention were the brakes so new pads were put on. Using this as my "everyday" winter bike until the Spring when I can get the carbon race bike out on the road again.

A guy I know who worked at a LBS had one. Think that was in the early 90s. It may have been a relative prototype. He built it up himself. It was rather large because heís around 6í4Ē. Neat looking ride.

That is a fine looking Lemond. I love the decals. I have 2 Lemond 853 and an Airborne ti, but a titanium Lemond in my size, 53/54 cm, is a bike I would seriously consider purchasing.

I just scored a T-Lab X3 frameset, and am amassing bits for the build now. I’m excited for my first Ti experience!

Though they’re a young outfit, they’ve put some innovative features into the X3 which certainly reflect the fact that many at the company were also at now-defunct Guru, so this is not their first rodeo, as the saying goes.

Billed as their all-terrain, I’ll be spec’ing the complete bike more typical roadie than gravel trendy, as that suits my preferences and terrain, Some 38c rubber should be pretty sweet for the dirt roads around here.

Anyhoo...I’ll post up pics once it’s done, too.

I've got a 2020 fully built out with GRX di2 and a 2x setup up front. I have a set of road wheels with 32mm GP5k Tubeless & GRX wheels with Gravel King SS (F) SK+ (R) also tubeless.
It's my road bike and my gravel bike. Just swap wheels based on where I think I'm going. Definitely has the ride of Ti, but is still plenty stiff when standing on the pedals. The top tube and seat tube get plenty of looks too.

So I guess you must love it, eh, since it does double-duty? If it turns out to be the dream for me as well, I’ll ante up for a second wheelset, too. It’s going to replace my spring/winter/gravel roadie, the Kinesis Racelight 4S, right away, but I’ve got a couple of skinny-tire roadies on hand still as I use the T-Lab to see how wide I can go for pavement and still hang on for my club rides. Both my Breezer Venturi and Dedacciai Gladiatore2 are running 23c, albeit on 19.4mm internal width rims, but this wide tire thing is still new to me. I have 650b x 48 on my Breezer Doppler, so I’ll try those on the T-Lab at some point as well.

I’d love to see a pic of your X3! EDIT: just found it upthread, post #2895. Nice!

Awesome frame! I love my 2019 T-Lab X3. Itís my do-it-all bike! I picked it up directly from the factory in Montreal in January 2019.

I canít seem to post pictures since I have less than 10 posts here, but will see what I can do about that.

Enjoy it! Itís truly a special frame (at least from my point of view)

Thanks! Iím really excited to get mine built, and with all the COVID slowdowns, Iím glad Iím doing this now, in winter, rather than later in spring, so that I can be out riding it when the weather is good instead of sitting around waiting for parts.

I think itís special, too, and really hope to make a pilgrimage out to T-Lab sometime soon. Iíve really been wanting to go to Montreal anyway, and a chance to swing in to see the shop would be the icing on such a trip!

Finally hit my 10 posts and can contribute a photo to this thread
I got a good deal on this frame from a friend a while back (didn't quite fit him) and had been slowly acquiring parts for it, finally had time to build it up in March when everything shut down around here.


Best I can tell it's a mid-90's Dean El Diente frame made by TST. First time I've done a full build (other than the headset, which was already installed when I got it). Fun project and I've been enjoying riding it.

Nice job on the bar tape wrapping! Seriously, the consistency and symmetry is excellent!

Very friendly people at the shop. I took possession of mine during winter and found it so hard just to look at it until April!

Nice!! How do you find the Mavic Allroad XL tires on tarmac? I removed mine when I got the bike since I had other plans for tires, but was wondering if it's worth it to put them back on my gravel/allroad wheelset?

The Yksion Elite Allroads are fine on tarmac, but the Gravel King SS/SK+ combo is better. When I'm doing more tarmac than gravel I do the Gravel Kings, when I know that's going to be flipped or know that it's loose fire roads & single track I go with the Yksions as they have more bite on the side wall. If I only had the Nox w/GP5K & Mavics I'd be content, but who wants LESS bike stuff??

Thanks! My main wheelset/tire combo is Mavic Allroad Pros with road oriented tires (Recently changed from Rene Herse Barlow Pass to Challenge Strada Bianca TLR 36) and it's perfect for rides with "some" gravel, but mainly tarmac. I find it's lacking traction on more difficult rides that include singletrack and loose stuff... I had the opportunity to acquire a set of Mavic Allroad Elites for a good price, so I'm thinking of fitting the Yksions 40c (that I already own) on them for more technical rides, but I still have lots of tarmac to cover to get to the trails and wouldn't want that part of the ride to kill the mood. Looks like my reasoning is good if I compare it to your setup. Thanks again!

I finally reached 10 posts, so I can show you my T-Lab X3. Awesome do-it-all allroad bike. It's currently setup as a road-oriented machine, but I can easily change the chainring and wheelsets for gravel/singletacks adventures!

So how long do those Gravel King tires hold up? Would they perform well on a loaded touring bike?
