Nice frame+forks with one of my favourite paint schemes, 8 speed Dura Ace STI (strangely single pivot brakes though), but with 3 chainrings! Nooo! Sacrilege!!

Maybe... but I reckon 8 speed Dura Ace STI only ever came with a double left hand lever.

Hmm, good point. Hadn't thought of that. Why is it fitted with a triple chainset then I wonder?

Great frame, if it was my size I'd certainly be tempted.

As for Lemond replica I think it's just the frame. The gruppo doesn't quite match
