    lemond zurich

    Someone gave me this frame free tonight and I am wondering if someone could tell me the year it was built and if there is value in restoring it to the original condition. Thank you!

    There's certainly value in it as it is a good bike and when built up it can be sold easier.
    You can also just sell the frameset if you're not up for the $400 or so it'll take to buy parts to build it completely.
    What size is it?
    It's probably late 90s or early 2000 with Reynolds 753 or something. Looks nice.

    Trek built Lemond. Some Zurich have Reynolds 853 main and stays tubing others are 853 main and 725? stays. A straight, no rust or dents Zurich frame and fork worth about $150-$250. The whole bike with 9 speed Ultegra probably worth $500-$700.

    Agree it's a Trek-built Lemond. From the paint scheme, it is defeinitely not a 2000 (solid blue) or a 2001 (blue and yellow). My best guess is that it is not far off those years, as it otherwise looks almost identical to my Y2K Zurich frame.

    Sprucing it up to ride it - well worth it. These frames ride great.

    Sprucing it up to flip it and make a profit - not at all worth it if it inlcudes a repaint, worth it if you just clean up what you've got. You will not get back the cost of a decent paint job.

    Hi guys, sorry to bump an old thread but I've been looking for some information regarding Lemond Zurichs and this thread popped up.

    I'm searching for my first road bike (for long riding and maybe some olympic distance triathlons) and I've found a 2005 Lemond Zurich on Craigslist, listed for $1100. From what I've read, it doesn't appear to be worth that much. I hate to be a total low baller, but would appreciate a good price - what would be a good offer to make on the bike? I haven't seen it in person yet, but this is assuming it's in good condition and has all the stock components.

    I appreciate any insight anyone can offer. Thanks a lot everyone, have a great day.

    Here are the specs of the original bike.
    http://www.bikepedia.com/QuickBike/B...rich&Type=bike

    A 2003 Zurich sold for $2100 so I would presume a 2005 would sell in the $2200 / $2300 range. If the components are original then they are Ultegra 6600 10 speed. I would say $1000 is a fair price for the bike as long as it is in very good condition.

    Last week a late 90's LeMond Zurich (9 speed) sold for $700 (including shipping) on eBay.

    Ian,

    Thank you very much for the information. I saw the bike on bikepedia there, but being new to all of this I wasn't sure how to value the last generation Ultegra components to modern pricing and such. I appreciate your help!

    A lot of people still lieke the 6500 series of Ultegra more than the 6600 series. I am one of them. The 6500 series looks much classier and better built than the 6600 series. I put 6500 derailleurs and crank on my cyclocross I built.
