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

It looks like you should shorten that stem and move your seat back.

I haven't read all the way through so hopefully this thread is still on topic.

My Maillot Jaune. I forget the frameset's year but it's 853 and has the gaudy decals. I bought it as a frame and built. Campy Chorus 10, Ksyrium Elites, Ritchey seatpost and stem. The polished stem is a recent change as I got lucky enough to find one on closeout at a LBS.

The 2nd shot shows how I changed the controls to deal with left arm paralysis that is a result of what turned out to be my last motorcycle ride. The brakes are coupled and the Kelly Take-Off works the FD.

obviously not mine, but I always liked the Team Saturn bikes.

There's a hotter looking one around (older) which I think came with a TIME fork

the autocad is about the same vintage actually. I think I took that class around 1997 or 1998. It's just coincidence though. I took the class 10 years ago but just bought the bike a week ago.

My 96 alpe d'huez.

Bought it used in 99 or 00. I'm still seriously in love with this bike.

Pre-Trek LeMond

Hello to all,

I recently picked up this early '90s LeMond through eBay and took it for a first ride today. Did not go very far but it was a nice ride. I am tall and the large frame (64cm) feels great. The bike is in great condition and does not appear to have been ridden much.
The bike has 'all-Campy' - mostly Athena (which appears to be the original group) with 8-speed Ergo shifters and Campy hubs laced to Mavic rims. The frame is Columbus Thron with a nice Italian-style label on the seat tube.
There is an unusual engraving on the brake bridge and a small Italian flag emblem on the top tube - it would be great if any forum members can shed any light on what model the bike actually is.

Regards,
Andrew
Brisbane, Australia

smokin' deal. My LBS wouldn't budge from around $1,500 (my memory's fuzzy) in early '06 - I ended up spending a little more and getting the '06 Zurich on sale.
