Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

This is a bike at one LBS that was built for a trade show here in town. Apparently two were made and one was sold. They told me this bike sold for $3999.99 and now its $1999.99 .It is full titanium, full Ultergra, Bontrager race wheels an some hi-grade sealed components in the drive train section (can't remember what brand the salesman told me).

I like the geometry, kind of like a Merckx. 60 cm seat tube length and 57.5 cm top tube length. Perfect for me. I have a weakness for limited edition guitars and I think I have the same bug for bikes as well.

What do you think of this ride?

open the picture in paint, select image dropdown, select attribute, then change pixels to desired width and height, resave or save under new name.

I've got a 2000 Lemond Buenos Aires (53cm) that I'll sell you. Full Shimano 105, Rolf Vector wheels, and a Shimano Flight Deck. All for $500. It's in great shape.

Any takers? Please, I need to make room for a new bike.

you sure this isn't an arrivee, if it is I'd buy that in a second--especially for $1999

go to microsoft.com and search for power toys

windows xp power toys has a applet that will let you right click any image file and resize it, very handy

or go into paint then go to edit skew/stretch size and put in like 30% for each box and hit ok.

a better option would be to upload it here: https://tinypic.com/ and then you can post the whole picture without making it crappy and small. you dont even have to make an account there.

Interesting site, but you are right. It is tiny.

I like it too. The rep said that this bike only weighs 19.6 lbs in a 59cm steel frame!

I saw something similar last year at a Trek store in San Diego. Apparently, for display, Trek produces these one-offs. They're not the same as a normal Lemond but are more like what you'd get from a simple custom builder. I think the ones I saw were offered at $2000, also. Interesting bike.

"Interesting" is what the salesman said abouit it but he didn't really say why. What makes it interesting?

I know the yellow color is the Lemond "team" color and it's full titanium...what else?

While the geometry seems different so I can't compare, I have ridden titanium LeMonds (Tete de Course and Victoire) from the 2000-2001 era and they rode great. I believe the frames from that time were actually produced by TST (formerly Sandvik) who are based in Kennewick, WA. They also made ti frames for Mongoose and some other name brands in the past. Didn't LeMond have a custom program too?

Cool! It even has a pump peg. They're getting hard to find. It's not quite full Ultegra... what kind of crank is that? Odd that they would put a triple on a high-end bike for a trade show. Usually they're all pimped out for racing. And I guess the reflecters and spoke guard generally go on anything for sale from a shop. That *is* kind of a short top tube for that size bike, isn't it? I think the sales guy is feeding you a line. But if there's nothing wrong with it, and if it fits, that's a very good price for a Lemond Ti.

A good price for a rare Ti Lemond. I love big frame bikes and would sure love to give that one a ride. The steerer is cut too short for my taste and the dork disk and reflectors would have to go but would be a great bike to own for a big guy.
Cheers,
George

Yeah. It's technically a 57cmm, but I measured the top tube at 57.5 cm and the bottom of seat collar to center of crank to be 59.75 CM. is is actually 1 cm longer than my sloping 62cm Allez is right now. My effective top tube is so long (60.5) have to use a 75 mm stem. This Lemond is more like a Colnago(sp?), all seat tube and no top tube! I like it

Also of note: why use "Race" wheels on a display bike for a trade show. Those are lower level Bonty wheels.

I'm guessing that bike was rebuilt following the trade show.
