Bottom Line:   
I purchased the 2008 edition and absolutely love it. THe ride is easy with the carbon rear triangle, fork and seat post. It is also a very stiff ride for those who like to drop the hammer. Bike is well worth the not so expensive price tag.

Strengths:    Comfortable frame, Tiagra shifts nice, wheels are bullet proof

Weaknesses:    - Saddle.

Bottom Line:   
Was looking for an entry level racing bike after being out of the sport for a 10+ years. Tried to get the 2007 (red) model due to the full 105, but my size was not available. '08 model componentry drops a little to Tiagra, but IMHO a better frame. Aluminum main triangle with carbon fork and rear end.

All in all, a very nice ride.

Actually at 2008 (black and white)

Strengths:    Speed, comfort, good components at a great price.

Weaknesses:    Brakes and myself

Bottom Line:   
Bike is actually a 2008 model.

I started road riding again this spring after a 25 year hiatus. I started with a Brodie cyclocross which was an excellent multipurpose ride. During the week, I mount a rack on it and it becomes my commuter. Daily commute, about 35 miles. Weekends, I'd mount 23mm tires and go roading with my buds. It was always a struggle keeping up with these guys and for the most part, I attributed it to myself.

About a month ago, I went to get a tire for my cyclocross and ended up buying the Tourmalet (go figure).

What a difference. It was as if I found a couple new gears. Went on my Saturday morning ride with the regulars and couldn't believe how much easier it was keeping up with the pace and how much energy I had in reserve after the ride. And fast!

I like the geometry of the Lemond. I'm a bit longer in the torso and shorter in the leg and really felt comfortable on the bike. Stock seat is surprisingly comfortable and shifts are butter smooth. Brakes are so-so and I might try different pads in the future, but they are more than adequate. Handling is superb, and the ride is a big improvement over the cyclocross.

Although this was a unexpected purchase, I've tried a Specialized Allez and a Felt Z65 and a very happy with the Lamond

Strengths:    Durable
Light


Weaknesses:    Handlebars are a bit wide, I've experienced a little back soreness after some rides cause of it.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike!! Came equipped with Ultegra rear, and 105 for all other components. They downgraded the componentry for the later models. For over two years I have had no problems with it.

What's a Lemond Tourmalet worth?

Found a used 2007 lemond Tourmalet frame/fork in good condition. Any idea what one of these is worth?Read More »

Great photo from the Col du Tourmalet

This was originally posted by 'rustybucket' in the PodiumGirls forum but thought it was worth reposting here. Hope its not too racy. I think its seriously crazy that these guys have to race right alongside these screaming lunatics. [ATTACH]206555[/ATTACH]Read More »

Stage 17: Pau to Col du Tourmalet - 174km

It all comes down to this. Well, not really. There is still the small matter of the ITT, and ,to a lesser extent, the final two sprint stages. But this is what could decide the podium. Sorta. This tour has been anything but the expected, so making a prediction for this stage is rather tough. Wh ... Read More »

Col du Tourmalet climb is in Google streetview high res...

[font=verdana]There are lots of other great climbs (all over europe) in google's streetview... but this amoung the first one's I've stumbled across in the newer high res. It's pretty cool. I'd like to adapt a transducer to my trainer (normal wheel speed sensor would probably do) that I could use ... Read More »

Tour organizers have flattened the Tourmalet.

Putting the big mountains so far from the finish effectively takes them out of the race, turning the stage into a group sprint. Ho hum.Read More »
