    It sounds like an excellent deal to me. I have the same frame that I built with Campy components and it serves me quite admirably.

    Does it - or can it fit you?

    Is the frame the correct size? Lemonds typically have a bit longer top tube which generally fits bodies with shorter legs and longer trunks.

    How much has it been "used?"

    Seems like a good price.

    It has 500 miles on it, yes it does fit me well, the top tube is longer, but i adjusted that discrepancy with a shorter stem and is fine...the problem that i have is that now i found a Cannondale R1000 from 04 that someone is also offering it to me for $1200 and it never has been used is a new bike...i do not know much about bikes, but they tell me that the Cannondale R1000 is a stiffer frame and better for climbing, i like them both but which one is the best? something that i don't like about the cannondale is that the brake set is not ultegra like the zurich, other thn that i really do not know how to really compare them. Any help in this issue is greatly appreciated.

    I picked up a new Zurick about six months ago. It's the most comfortable non touring road bike I've ever ridden. With the Zurick, Lemond went from all steel to what they call a spine frame. The frame is a combo of steel and carbon fiber. This was done starting with the 04 model year(i think?). Throw in about another grand and you can get the Lemond ti/carbon bike. Lemond is a good choice for those people with long torsos.
    Either bike may be a good choice for you. You need to ride both.
    I'm just trying to be the person my dog thinks I am.
