Hi,
well after a bit of umming and ahhing i was lucky enough to secure this 2003 Lemond Victoire Titanium Frame and Forks from Pondlife (thanks!)
I took off the top tube sticker as frankly i thought there was too much white going on.
I put in a new headset and built it up with 10 speed Campagnolo - all Record apart from the Levers (chorus) and calipers (athena) - these will be changed for black record at some point.
It fits me perfectly :xmas-cool: - unfortunately i've only been up and down the cul-de -sac on it due to the weather and having the flu but hopefully will get a good long ride on it soon - it's lighter than all the steel i've ridden before
. :)
Better pics soon too:

I was eyeing on this frame for a while. It's beautiful and I like the geometry. Well done mate!

Hi Pondlife - thanks
the ride is super smooth - i did a nice hilly 75km ride the other week and it was very comfortable - nice and light too.
I've just bought another Lemond - a zurich that will be buit up with silver campag and colour matched stem / straight forks...
watch this space!
Happy new year! :xmas-cool:
