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!!!

it's a good one. i think they don't make the big sky anymore and the tourmalet replaces it which is very nice too.

No...I didin't see the Big Sky in the '06 catalog. My shop does have an '05 on closeout, but it is too big for me. It would be mine if it was the right size.

Cheers,

Brian

Here is my "new" 2001 Lemond Poprad. I bought it to use as a commuter/beater bike. But, I've been having so much fun with it my brand new custom IF hasn't been seeing much action lately!

Very nice. Classy.
I've been looking for an early Zurich frame. I love my steel / carbon, but the classic ones are damned sexy, especially in that color combo.

Actually, that's not a factory paint job nor is it a factory color. It was originally blue with white panels and red block letters. I had it repainted by Cyclart.

Here's another pic with a different seatpost and saddle. I had ordered these but they hadn't come in when I assembled it on Sunday.

Here's more fuel for the fire, the bike now has a t-shirt to catch my sweat and also protect the top tube from rubbing. Every part on the bike is remarkable, very heavy duty even the race wheels, it deals with potholes like a mountain bike wheelset. The only thing I want for it is a set of yellow/black race lite tires when these wear out.

Explains why I couldn't find it on the web!
Your color choice is perfect. Love the detail on the logo. Nice.

Hey, I really, really hate to tell you this but...that's a 2004 Alpe D'Huez, not 2005. The 2005 had blue boxes around the logo, the 2004 had the exact paint job as the bike in your picture - red box on silver bike. Also, the bike you posted has aluminum seat/chain stays and the 2005 has carbon seat/chain stays. (The '06 is a blue bike with a white box around the logo)

Here's the '05:

(Notice the black "bars" behind the seat, down to the rear tire - that's carbon fiber)

I know its not expensive and flashy, but I love it! It was my first road bike and has seen some serious miles since I bought it. This is the one I'll never sell. It has too much sentimental value already.

Very very nice.
I had one of those bikes that I would never sell, then I did, to my (at the time) wife's sister, for use in grad school. Before me and the ex-wife split up, I bought it back for what she paid me for it. It's now in storage, in horrible shape, but someday will be on the wall. Way too many miles in it from my youth to see it disappear.

It wasn't a LeMond though, but it was a bike I rode and dreamt about riding like Mr. LeMond.

Drool!!!
Where did you get those green tires. I have been jonesing for a set of green tires for my '04 Tourmalet. Of course if they are cyclocross tires I am out of luck anyway.

Cheers,

Brian

Bought this 1999 Zurich Lemond framset on eBay and built it up with used DA8. Brought back memories of the steel Humber (made by Raleigh of England ) tourer I had as a youngster.

Very nice bike ccdisce! Got to match up the tire colors though . What kind of stem setup do you have? Is it an adaptor?

BMIKE -- is that a Polar cadence sensor on your down tube? I have an S725X and have been thinking of getting the cadence sensor. Knowing how close I had to mount the speed sensor (high on a the same side front fork), I'm worrie about the cadence sensor.

Did you have to mount it there to get it to work with HRM?

thanks,
- tom
