2001 Lemond Tourmalet on CL; is it worth $320?

Hey Guys,

Saw this Lemond Tourmalet on CL and thought I'd get some input on whether it's a good deal or not. Thoughts?

Thanks!

If everything works, the bike is clean, and it is your size, thats a good deal.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for the input. The little bit of info that I had on Lemonds all sounded good. So, assuming that it fits correctly, it sounds like this would be a good purchase? I've never had a road bike before, so I'm not real versed in what's good or not. The seller mentioned that he rode it this past weekend and found that the rear derailleur probably needs some work so he would drop the price to $320.
