Any advice or experiences you could share about this Ti/Carbon bike build would be greatly appreciated. Seems like a great deal, looking into a purchase. Thanks MD45

I have an '04 Ti/Carbon Victoire LeMond. It's a great bike. Fast, light, and comfortable, what else is there to say? If the price is right, and it checks out OK, go for it.

I consider it the best bike Lemond ever built, a classic. Of course I'm biased since I own one. Rides like a dream with great geometry. My only complaint is the finish on the carbon seems a little soft in spots. I think the 'spine bikes' are very underappreciated.

Great -except

I had this bike and it was great. Until, the rear seat stay carbon failed in some sort of delamination. About two inches up from the lug. Was not caused by any crash.
Now riding a trek since I could not get a warranty Lemond frame since no longer made.
