Well, I got to take a look today, and in accordance with the surprisingly prescient comment above... it didn't fit.

I took it for a 10 min test ride, and my hands and wrists were already numb and tingly, and my neck was hurting. I just felt way too stretched out and reaching. I normally fit well on a 56cm, and this Lemond was a 55cm frame, and I've had an older 54cm bike that made me feel way too scrunched. But I guess they weren't kidding with the Lemonds having a proportionally longer top tube than usual.

The ride and feel of the bike was beautifully smooth though, and it's super light. But the shifters definitely had some wear and weren't working the greatest. Well, I guess the search continues, and I'll keep my eyes open for a 53cm Zurich, since these seem like great bikes.
