I'm on 25mm Michelin Pro 4s and love them on my Lemond. I ran 23s for years until a friend suggested I switch.

I have owned a total of six LeMonds, still have ‘04 Arrivee and ‘08 Versailles. I had a 2000 Zurich I sold because it was to big for me, my son has ended up with three LeMonds through trading with me, he has a Versailles, Etape and Tournalay, he got them when I downsized my fleet.
i love the way they ride and handle.

Last night I put 25s (Vittoria Rubino Pro G+) on my Zurich, they fit with room to spare. I'm going for a ride this morning to try them out.

Guys,
I did not buy the Lemond. While working on the deal and shipping I ran across a Serotta that fit me, great price and two hours away...as opposed to 3000 miles away.

It's still in my mind and you never know....I may go back and pick it up. Thanks for your input and help.
