My best guess is definitely aeronautical glue and maybe pins too. Looking closely where the carbon meets the Ti you can see some spots where a pin might have been inserted. Specifically along the seat tube just above the BB shell.

My first order from XXCycles- two more Sprinter tubulars and a nice new, shiny Miche Primato 8 spd cassette. Took about a week and a half to get here - not bad.

22 and 26 tooth Uniglide cogs, because 13-23 ain't enough gears, especially with a 43 tooth "small" ring.

They still make the straps as well, cant stand the nylon ones.

Christophe leather are almost always on efbay, I stocked up awhile back when the only place in town said they didn't know if they were going to get anymore after telling me they would always stock them before.

No pics yet, but an 85ish Ron Cooper frameset in my size. Repainted in the late 80's, but It's still in good enough nick that I'll build it up as is to start.
Pics to be added in the Ron Cooper thread as soon as I take some.

I bought an old Phil Wood BB off EBay and sent it in for servicing at Phil Wood last Friday. The tech called me on Monday and informed me the BB had a 5mm offset on it and asked if thatís what I wanted. I chose to go with zero offset. We spent minutes chatting about chainlines, offsets, etc. He also informed me the spindle was being replaced under warranty. I got the BB back today. Great experience with Phil Wood - this is the 2nd used Phil Wood BB Iíve bought on EBay and sent in for servicing.

Hexagon bar on the former and they shaved just two of the six sides on the latter...fork holder on the latter is interchangeable where the former just adjusts by pressure...I donít see where Iíll need the other sizes...even if they were available...Iíll just use the pressure method...well, if they become available, Iíll probably try to get them...

BAM!!! I need one of those water bottle cages for the Guv'nor. Perfect match for the Pedals that came in today for it. MKS Touring Next pedals with leather wrapped half clips.


So pretty!

A bit of info I found recently....In 2003 the entire LeMond line changed as all the higher-priced bikes then became half-something and half-carbon, representing a big infusion of engineering into the brand. The upper half of the frames featured Trekís OCLV 110 carbon while the lower half, in the case of the premium TÍte de Course model, was butted 3Al/2.5v titanium chemically milled by Reynolds in Britain, with following years using ti from True Temper. The idea was to unite the lightness of carbon (and apparently the OCLV 110 variant was state-of-the-art then) with the supple riding characteristics and strength of titanium. The Tete de Course, handmade in America, also had a compact geometry, with a slightly dropped top tube. It featured laser-cut mitre joints where the carbon and ti intersect and even had titanium dropouts. Weighing in at 7.6 kg (16.8 lbs) with various Bontrager carbon bits this wonderful bike was priced at US$5,000 or, inflation-adjusted, around US$7,000 today.

Yeah, these are cool. I actually built up a steel/C.F. version a couple of years ago with high end parts as a triple configuration to be my main climbing bike. It came in at 18lbs 4 ozs as built with alloy wheels. It just now became "obsolete" due to a triple equipped De Rosa that snuck into the bike cave. So I've listed my Lemond locally for a great loss on what I put into it. Won't be sad if it doesn't go, LOL! These are really excellent frames in my opinion.


Steel and Carbon Fiber goodness.

My son rides a 2005 Lemond "Buenos Aires" with similar carbon/steel construction. The carbon fiber is OCLV 120 and the steel tubing is TrueTemper OX Platinum.

The Erasmus bridge can be quite a climb.

The Koga-Miyata Traveller is supposed to be a gravel bike in the end and I want to take it to Limburg on part of this off-road route once it is ready.
If it rides well I plan to ride it to Berlin with a (small) load so a bit of low-end gearing can be useful. But 24.3 to 121 gear inches is low enough without a load but could be lower for loaded touring or MTB style singletrack.

It's basically a test platform before I splurge on the more expensive build that will be the WorldTraveller, which I plan to turn into more of a rando bike with fenders and dynamo lights.
