lemond ti frame vs, cannondale(3 posts)

lemond ti frame vs, cannondaleJbajel

I got offered a great deal on a 2001 lemond victoire titanium bike with ultegra gruppo and vector comp wheel set. I can get it for the same price as a cannondale with mixed 105/tiagra gruppo? I like to ride long, but I am nervous about the lemond frame. No road test possible now because of all the snow.

Any help in making this huge investment is appreciated.

the Lemond is one of the most comfortable bikes that I have road. I tried everything I could find before buying mine and for the long rides I do it feels good. But the fit is also there where it wasn't on the Cannonadale. So make sure it fits you well, maybe try it on a trainer for a 1hr or so.

I can say I haven't been sorry for buying it,

Good luck,
The General

This is no contest, assuming that the Lemond fits (don't forget that these bikes have a long tt and some folks buy one size smaller in Lemond geometry). I haven't ridden a Lemond ti frame, but a ti frame with Ultegra is simply a better investment. Even if you don't like it you could probably sell it for $1200.
