FS: 59cm Titanium Lemond Victoire w/ Dura Ace
The shop rats at my LBS tell me they can get more $$ by parting this out than selling whole, but perhaps someone here is looking for a complete ride.
2003 Lemond Victoire, 59cm
*Full Titanium frame (not the carbon/Ti spine bike)
*Purchased in September 2004. 4 seasons of use from 2005-2008. No winters (~Dec through Feb).
From the Lemond propaganda ...
*"One of the finest titanium frames available anywhere, from anyone" - Handcrafted in the USA.
*Custom drawn Reynolds 3/2.5 titanium tubing
*Mechanically butted, as opposed to chemically milling, aligns the grain structure of the material, adding strength.
*Ovalized down tube at BB provides increased lateral stiffness
*Bontrager Race Lite Carbon fork with 110 GSM blades
*** never wrecked, never touched the tarmac, never laid down, etc.
Dura Ace 7800 Gruppo
*New gruppo installed June 2008 (STI levers, brakes, derailleurs, crank, BB)
*New Bontrager wheels w/ DA 7800 hubs purchased September 2008 - never been touched by a spoke wrench and perfectly straight, pristine
*DA 7800 12-25 cassette
*Campy Record carbon seat post
*Bontrager Race Lite saddle installed September 2008 (when they first became available). Also have Selle Italia SLR available.
*Easton 90 Carbon bars
*Bontrager Race X-Lite stem, 110mm
Paint is excellent. No dings, scrapes, scratches, etc. Some minor paint worn on the BB shell ... but it's titanium so no corrosion!
I've seen similar vintage Ti bikes going for $1000 - $1500 with componentry ranging from Ultegra/Rival to DA.
Link shows paint job, but with Ultegra option (came available with Ultegra, DA or Campy Record).
If you're truly interested PM me and I can send you photos. Make me a reasonable offer and we can go from there ...Who cares how the crow flies

Can you shrink it to a 53? Awesome bike I'm sure although something would have to be done about the lemond decalsIt's not so much the model year, it's the high mileage or meterage to keep the youth of Canada happy

^^^ Funneh. My current road bike is the latest full carbon (Trek built) full Ultegra 16lb masterpiece that cost just under a grand because of those LeMond decals. Great bikes, but LeMond had to know that his outspoken & unsubstantiated rants would end badly. Still, they were always a lot of bike for the money.

I'm glad they scrapped the brand though - his little tantrums he had at Lance's expense were embarassing! It didn't make anyone other than GL look bad either. Angry, bitter old man. I don't know that he had much to do with the build of the bikes other than "donating" his name. They are cool bikes though.Gravity. It's the law.

oh like for sale like already listed on gearswap. Actually I'm on a 55. That seems small and I always screw up how small. I used to ride a 58 guerc. The 55 is measured c to c as well (as opposed to top of set post).
I did speak to someone who'd fit it today and suggest it to her. She wasn't really biting though.It's not so much the model year, it's the high mileage or meterage to keep the youth of Canada happy
