    LeMond Titanium

    Drove 7 hours to pick up this bike yesterday afternoon. Pretty sure itís an early 90ís Clark-Kent built frame. Full Campagnolo 8 speed works great. Custom head tube ďbadgeĒ and flame paint job. Only significant flaw is that the clear coat is peeling pretty badly in places.

    nice find. You can get the clear coat done again if it's a keeper.

    I fully endorse the Campy Ergo 8sp (personal favorite), but that head tube is going to give me nightmares.

    The head tube is the primary reason I bought it. I dig unique bikes, and I doubt that thereís any others like it in Portland. Might swap out the cassette for one with slightly different gearing. Pretty sure itís an 11-21 right now. Also need to swap brake cables. Previous owner reversed them so left lever is the rear brake and right is the front. Shifting is correct though.

    The previous owner has them 'world standard', with the left-rear/right-front, as is the way EVERY other country in the world cables their bikes. I cable all my bikes the same.

    I raced for years around New England with 8sp Campy, 11-21 with 53/39 and still prefer that combo with Ergo 8sp. Try it before you swap it out.

    Thanks for the insight on brake cabling. I had no idea. Iíll keep that in mind in case I ever rent a bike in Europe.
