Does anyone know where I can get a 2007 Lemond Manual, for the Buenos Aires I just bought? I am looking for geometry specifics........live rural...........no (ex) Lemond dealers around......The website is no help.

Modern bike "Manuals" are nothing more than about 60 pages of legal disclaimers. With every disclaimer saying to bring your bike to your authorized dealer.

I have a 2007 brochure with geometry specs. If you tell me what size you have I'll post its specs.

The OP can't do better than that. :D

This thread prompted me to document a method I've used to accurately measure the geometry of existing frames. It involves removing the wheels, pedals, and handlebars, and placing the frame on a sheet of butcher paper with wooden wedges between the frame and the paper as spacers so that the plane of the frame is the same as the plane of the paper.

The only tools needed are a Sharpie marker, a yardstick with an accurate straightedge, the wooden wedge spacers, and an inexpensive ($10 - $20) 10" - 15" goniometer.

Hey, that would be great, I really appreciate it. The bike is a 2007 Lemond Buenos Aires
with the Min-Max Triomphe Carbon frame, and a Carbon Bontrager Race Fork. The size is a 53. Let me know if there is anything else I can provide.

Thanks!
