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

Lemond all the way...a nice classic looking ride..

I rode a titanium 2003 Lemond Victoire for several years, and liked it lots. It was just a tad large for me, so pay attention to the top tube measurement since the sizing seemed to run a little large. Even if it wasn't titanium, I'd still pick the Lemond over the Fuji....

I have the '05 LeMond Zurich and liked it. (Haven't ridden it for a couple years - replaced it with a Colnago.)

When I bought it, I was 185 pounds (at 6'1",) and discovered that was "morbidly obese" for those race lite wheels. I had to rebuild the rear every 2-3,000 miles until I upgraded to some Mavic Ksyriums - and never had another problem. You'll probably need to plan on replacing those wheels, too.

Thanks

They are in different towns.........I'm going to look at the LeMond first. I do like the looks and G. LeMond turned out to be one of the good guys it seems. Good news that they run a little big

What I meant is that the geometry could stretch you a little, that is how I recall it feeling.

LeMonds run a little longer in the top tube.

Once I realized that the LeMond was a triple (and this is triple country) I went and snatched it up, without hesitation....

Unfortunately we're having another winter event so I can't ride so off to the LBS for some new rubber and a whatever service it needs

Pretty darn nice bike and it fits great

Yippee!
