RE: You need the Lemond Ti - seriously classy, with the Lemond stretch

Litespeed geometry fits me just right. I knew it as soon as I put my leg over it. And all their road frame geometries match. I've thought of upgrading to a newer Litespeed frame - stiffer, lighter, with 1 1/8" steerer so I get a full choice of forks - but, whatever, my 1999 model is still fit for purpose :-) Stiff enough, light enough, definitely strong enough! I've ridden a mates $$$$$ Baum custom and can't feel any remarkable improvements in power transfer ......

LeMond geometry definitely works for some body types - I know a couple of devotees. And those Trek era ones are beautifully made and intricately finished.

Lynskey will do full custom Ti, as will Rivet (Chinese made, properly marketed), and Habanero in Arizona (maybe a bit too cheap and cheerful, but strong and fit for purpose!).
