cervelo prodigy vs. lemond zurichelrey

i realize that nothing helps you make a decision like a test ride. however, i was wanting a little advice. i was wondering about the quality of the craftsmanship of the prodigy? is the cervelo fork a good one? what makes the lemond tough to fit? i feel the materials and design are realatively the same. any advice would help!

As do Treks. Great for Americans who supposedly have shorter legs and longer torsoes than Italians who are opposite.

You might want to post on the Yahoo Cervelo group as well. Someone probably did the comparison there...

The only substantial difference between the two bikes (besides geometry, and that's minor) is that the entire frame of the Zurichis Reynolds 853 tubing, whereas the main triangle of the Prodigy is thermacrom and the rear triangle is nivacrom. Performance-wise there's little to choose between the two bikes. A Prodigy, without pedals, and setup with Ultegra weighs just under 18 lbs.

A friend of mine recently compared specs and quoted prices and ultimately bought the Prodigy. He saved Cdn. $300.00 on the Prodigy and is totally happy with his choice. In my opinion you're paying a little bit for Trek marketing with the Zurich, although it's a fine bike.
