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

Show your LeMond!!!

I started out buying an old Zurich that looked like hell, it was my Guinee pig for learning how "modern" bikes were built, part quality, ride characteristics, etc. here are some others along the way...

my current is the '01 Zurich wi/6700 components, a good day rider. I have another '01 57cn Maillot Jaune frame in beautiful shape I'll rebuild w/7700 dura ace as orig spec'd soon as well. currently building up a '06 British green Croix de Fer loaner for a friend of mine, decent frame in 105 and dura ace /open pro wheelset, hopefully get him into riding so he can purchase his own bike down the line. these lemonds are easy bikes to built, and great sub 20lb er's.

An '05, True Temper Platinum OX tubing. I have a road wheelset for this as well, which I have ridden on Colorado's Triple Bypass and Copper Triangle road rides, among others. Love this bike.

My 2002 Alpe d'Huez

The "Before" photo. As it looked when I bought it off Craigslist:



The "After" photo. Replaced original 105 Triple with Ultegra 6800 and wheels with Mavic Kysrium SLs. Also replaced handlebar, tape, stem, seat, water bottle cages. Added Garmin Vector 3 PM pedals that I share with my other two road bikes. Rides beautifully.

Guess I can add in my latest (and 7th) Lemond. A 2006 Versailles I found locally this winter. Hodgepodge of mismatched parts that did not work right together. Upgraded to mostly Dura Ace/Ultegra with some light FSA SLK cranks with Wickwerks triple chainrings. It's also sporting new carbon fiber bars and my light November Nimbus wheels.
