Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Lemond Fillmore questions...(also Kona Paddy Wagon)

Hello everyone,

I have a couple of questions for Fillmore owners please:

1. Searching back I saw a post that the Fillmore was measured c-c, the Lemond website says c-t. Can anyone with a 53cm confirm it is exactly 53 c-t please?

2. Does anyone have a frame weight for the 2008 cro-mo model?

I would love a good old True Temper tubed Fillmore but not easy to find...

Lemond (Trek?) did not know but gave a complete stock bike weight as 18.4 lbs - that seem optimistic.

The other bike I considered was the Kona Paddy Wagon but the weight of the frame is around 5 lbs I believe. Hoping the Fillmore is closer to 4....?

I have an '06 Fillmore (with the TruTemper OX frame). Lemond geometry is usually right on regarding the seat tube, but then long on the top tube. Mine is a 55cm, so I can't promise you anything.
I wouldn't doubt the 18 lb claim - mine was a hair over 17 lbs stock.
Let me know if you want to know anything else.
