Bike is also for sale on Pinkbike, WeightWeenies, and San Francisco Craigslist if you would like to message me there. Contact me about buy it now or with any questions You won't find a better value frame. Frame and Fork- Lemond Zurich with Reynolds 853 Steel and a painted to match Reynolds Ouzo Pro full carbon fork. Also included is the cane creek headset. No dents, dings, or cracks. Derailleur hanger is straight as an arrow. Fenders will fit in the rear with almost all brakes, even with a 28mm tire. The fork has a 25mm tire on a 17.5 internal width rim. It measures out well past 25mm, and is closer to a 28mm. A fender would work on the front, but would not pass through. Only a half coverage front will work. There are many very good looking fenders in silver I can recommend for it. •For additional fee, I can include a frame pump painted to match for the peg• Headset and Seat Post Clamp - Headset is a cane creek. I believe it is a C2, but I could be wrong. It is smooth like two sticks of butter. the clamp works. What else is there to it? Geometry and Fit - The seat tube angle is a little slacked out. The head tube angle is a little steep. This gives it a really nice quick handling feeling, and you can get way behind the bottom bracket if desired. A very wide variety of people can fit this frame. "LeMond Racing Cycles was a bicycle manufacturer originally founded by Greg LeMond, an American winner of the Tour de France. LeMond offered a geometry based on the racing frames he used in competition, which had a longer top tube and wheelbase in an otherwise traditional lightweight steel frame. This was to stretch out the rider on the bicycle, with the intent of both lowering the frontal area presented to the wind, and optimizing power and stability." - Via Wikipedia Seat Tube is 55cm, Top tube is 56.5cm, Head Tube is 15cm. With the headset, it is equivalent to a 56, or a long 55. You could size down and run a longer stem if you are a 57/58 and get that classic lemond stretched out feel that is famous for Lemond's brands. Or, you can be a 55cm and run a 100cm or 110cm stem and just have it be a little longer than a traditional 55cm. I can't tell you if this will fit for sure, but for reference, I'm a spot on 55 Lemond and I have a slightly longer torso, which is why I like the length of the lemond. I also have long arms and huge hands, so all of that is a bit of a factor. I am 5'10.5 and have a 74cm saddle height from the center of the bottom bracket. Paint- This was practically new before the repaint. It was just UGLY before. Frame refinished in charcoal grey with lots of pearl and tons of clear coat to keep it durable. Silver parts on here would look fantastic with the paint. Decals - Decals are the traditional font. I have additional decals, including some completely custom very large ones that can only fit on the bottom side of the down tube. I originally should have gone with this it looks so good, but it is an easy swap if you want to do it yourself. Ride - The frame rides just as well, if not better, than any other steel frame I have ridden. In fact it rides even better than most I have ridden that cost $2500. The Lemond has a noticeable larger diameter seat tube than other 853 frames around this time. It is an a-symmetic tube and slightly thicker at the bottom bracket for durability and stiffness. The extra tube between the stays adds a LOT of stiffness and there is no twisting or bending. You could race the hell out of this thing and it and compete with 5k framesets. Marketing is just telling you carbon is that much faster, and it really isn't. The quality is on par with a lot of NAHBS builders, but at a fraction of the price. It really is an incredible riding frame. Shipping - Shipping is flat-rate via FedEx. Please no P.O. Boxes. If you have a P.O. Box, I can still have it shipped, but there will be an additional fee. Hawaii and Alaska also an additional price. International shipping only through the Ebay international program, because it will be too expensive. Part Option - Parts are available for sale with the frame set, which are specifically for this frame that I customized. The parts are VERY light and chosen to decrease the marginal weight difference of steel compared to carbon or aluminum. Frame weight is irrelevant anyway. Seatpost - Ritchey WCS allow 27.2 Brushed silver (no decals). Can be polished for additional fee. Stem - Shimano Pro PLT Silver. 110mm, Black decals removed, only small white decal H-Bar - FSA RD-200 42cm, Anodization removed for brushed Silver. Saddle - Bontrager Serano 148 Ti rails in white. Saddle is VERY hard to find.

Leopard DC1 carbon frame and fork. Leopards are from Half moon bay and are very popular in the bay area. They are quality rides and have great value for the price. They retail anywhere from $1500-$3000. I know many guys who have these and $5,000 race bikes and they love their DC1. 51 effective top tube length. Definitely for someone shorter, but could be stretched out with a setback seat post and a long stem, or great for a junior racer. The frame is made in Taiwan by a very reputable frame manufacturer that makes lot of frames 3 times the price. I bought this and the kid who sold it to me said it was the wrong size. For $250, it isn't worth driving back to get my money back. It has definitely been ridden and has some wear, but there is plenty of life left. Typical small chips in the clear coat that can easily be fixed. I did a little clean up on it also. The frame would be great for a guy building up a bike for his shorty. It needs a rear derailleur hanger and cable guide on the bottom bracket and a seat post collar. They are about $20 each and I can tell you where to get one. Throw an ultegra, force, 105, or rival group on here with some decent wheels and you can have a 16lb bike easy. This frame probably comes in at around 800 grams.

Giro atmos medium. Very clean. Never crashed. Straps trimmed to eliminate the excess. Unless you have an enormously long head, it will be fine. Buyer pays shipping cost.
