1984 Peugeot PSV-10SL
Campy Chorus shifters, Campy Athena FD & RD
Shimano Ultegra drivetrain (Had to due to Swiss-threaded BB)

Rides like a dream and I love it. Weighs in at 19.0 lbs including pedals and cages.

Note: I'm probably going to go with all-black bartape next time.

I have, got me 4th place in a road race on it's first weekend out. Did pretty mediocre on the 2nd weekend though. Have another coming up this weekend.

Still getting used to riding it. Went from a Neuvation carbon twig, to a Specialized boat anchor, and now this. It's very different from the previous two... in a way I can only describe as feeling like riding a whip.

Foil is out for maintenance this weekend, so I'll be racing my backup bike.

Took pics today, as I hope to sell it shortly after the race.




*apologies for my driveway being slightly downhill.

if I do sell it, I'm sizing down to 58 for more drop.

I have a 6'9" wingspan! And sweet shorts!

My ghetto TT set up. Bought the bike(everything minus wheels/crankset) for $300. Not too bad. Yes steerer will be cut shortly.

nice. I have raced with you this year in DeLand, and maybe at Dade City as well. I was on the only other steel bike in the peloton. Are you a 4?

p.s. this is my rig in not-so-race mode: http://www.pedalroom.com/p/lemond-bu...es-12155_2.jpg

Yup. Currently a 4 trying to hit 3. This season has been hard. The Cat 4 peleton last year wasn't nearly as fast... Although neither was I. Nice bike btw!
